Update - May 19
Deep Silver has confirmed that Saints Row: The Third Remastered will launch for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on May 25, following a Steam and GOG release on May 22. For any previous owners on Xbox One and PS4, this arrives as a free upgrade.
Outlining the new improvements, Deep Silver revealed the PS5 and Xbox Series X release will run at a dynamic 4K resolution with 60fps performance, matching the PC version's highest settings. That'll include upgraded lighting, texture resolution and other effects.
As for Xbox Series S owners, you've got a choice. You can choose "Performance Mode", locking gameplay at 60fps with a 1080p resolution, or a "Beauty Mode" that uses an upscaled 4K resolution at 30fps.
Original Story - May 17
Saints Row: The Third Remastered's back on our radar recently. Having previously been an Epic Store Exclusive on PC, a Steam launch is coming this Saturday on May 22, but that might not be the only platform its arriving on. Having previously come to PS4, Xbox One and Stadia, a PS5 release may now been on the cards.
While it's already playable via backwards compatibility, as spotted on Exophase (thanks Push Square!), a Trophy list has appeared for a native PS5 edition of the game. Unsurprisingly, this features the exact same trophies and requirements found in the PS4 version.

Trophy listings also usually indicate a game is close to release, so some sort of announcement from publisher Deep Silver may well be imminent.
Now, trophy listings don't usually appear until games are close to release, Deep Silver may be planning an announcement soon. Considering Deep Silver has already brought us several cross-gen releases - Metro Exodus, Chivalry 2 and Iron Harvest, to name a few - we'd confidently bet on this being legitimate.
Naturally, there's no word of an Xbox Series X|S version from this news, but we'd be very surprised if it isn't coming to Microsoft's consoles too. Hopefully we won't have to wait long for formal confirmation.
