United Front Games "Loves" The Idea Of A Sleeping Dogs Sequel

Would you like to see a sequel to Sleeping Dogs? So would United Front Games.

The developer would "love" to pursue a follow-up effort to the well-received 2012 title but unfortunately, it's not going to happen anytime soon.

The team is currently focused on a free-to-play project for PC, Triad Wars, and that means any thoughts of a Sleeping Dogs 2 have to remain on the back burner. But as producer Justin Bullard said during a recent Reddit AMA:

"Right now we are totally focused on making Triad Wars as awesome as it could be. But [we] would love to continue making games in the Sleeping Dogs universe."

The first game was originally entitled True Crime: Hong Kong and it was slated to be published by Activision. But the latter company dropped it in February 2011 and later, Final Fantasy publisher Square Enix picked it up and rebranded the project. It turned out to be a good move as the game sold well and turned out to be profitable for Square Enix.

If you missed out, they'll release a Definitive Edition for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC next month. It'll boast 1080p visuals and all 24 DLC packs!

They're not the only ones! I don't know how it slipped past me, but Sleeping Dogs made Plus even more worthwhile.

I finished it the other day and it shows how after a certain point, the big downfall of the overall story and flow of the game. It went from something worth playing and watching to a rushed mess with an even worse of an ending.

I'd try it though, since I did like the change in scenery and whatnot. I just wish there were more games where you play as a cop.

Great game. One of the sleeper hits of the last generation. Going to play it for the third time. Yes, in regards to the story telling, the ending was not that memorable, however the gameplay was so well done, and the production values were high enough, that all I remember really is how surprisingly fun the whole adventure was. Wonderfully talented studio.

Yeah, I want it to, but I just don't get Triad Wars. I'm sorry, but no-one asked for what that thing is.
