, the developers announced that they ve located the long-lost source code for the PC port after a recent "last-ditch effort" finally paid off.

Volition is busy working on the next mainline Saints Row game , so fixing Saints Row 2 will be an "outside office hours" project, but changes are coming: performance improvements, more stability, integrating Steam networking for co-op and multiplayer, and adding the previously console-only DLC.

Senior community developer Mike Watson called the PC port initiative a "labor of love."

"Being able to now have the means to go in there and fix a lot of the problems with the game is kind of a dream come true," he said. "It s been my mission for the longest time." As for timing: "It s one of those things where it ll be ready when it s ready. We want this port to just be beautiful on all levels."

Modders have gone to great lengths to smooth out Saints Row 2 on Steam, but this is sorely needed.
