THQ's open-world action game Saints Row: The Third has now sold 5.5 million copies, according to a tweet from company president Jason Rubin. It is not clear if the figure represents sold-through to consumers or sold-in (i.e shipped) to retailers. It also does not take into account Humble THQ Bundle sales.

"5.5 million people (pre Humble Bundle) can't be wrong," Rubin said. "Saints Row was the hit nobody realized was a hit!"

Saints Row: The Third released during November 2011 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. It notched a warm critical reception and shipped more than 4 million units as of April 2012. For more, check out GameSpot's review of Saints Row: The Third.
