Saint Row 2's PC Source Code has been Found - Volition will fix the game's PC Port

Saints Row 2's PC version is a mess. There's no other way of putting it. While the game is available on Steam, it suffers from a wide range of performance issues, relied on GameSpy (which is now shut down) for online play and more often than not relies on fan-made patches and tweaks to run. 

Volition, the developer behind the Saints Row series, has wanted to fix Saint Row 2's PC version for years, but until now Source Code for the port was unavailable. Saints Row 2's PC version was created by a 3rd party studio, which meant that Volition didn't have Source Code for the game's PC version on site. Now, Volition has gained access to Saints Row 2's long-lost PC source code, and the developer plans to use it to fix Saints Row 2's PC version. 

This patch was announced during Saints Row 2's 11th-anniversary livestream, where it was announced that Volition planned to address Saints Row 2's issues on PC. This planned patch will be free to all owners of the game, though at this time it is unknown when the patch will be released. 

Volition will use this patch to add Saints Row 2's formerly console-only DLC to the game's PC version and add Steamworks integrations into the title, restoring the game's multiplayer features.
