Sleeping Dogs proved to be an exceptional title of 2012. I had missed out on its initial release and only joined later in the year; deeply regretting my mistake to miss out on such an enjoyable open-world experience.
Hence, it’s my utmost pleasure to inform you all that United Front Games has announced that they are working on a new game set in the same Sleeping Dogs universe called Triad Wars.
“We’re super-excited that it’s another game based in the Sleeping Dogs universe, it’s something we’ve wanted to do for ages and we’re very happy to be working with Square Enix again,” said a representative for the studio in a blog post on the company’s official website.
The announcement comes only a week after someone spotted publisher Square Enix filing a trademark for “Triad Wars” in the US. The game is currently set for release sometime in 2014, probably in Fall. However, the developer didn’t mention any thing on what platforms the game will be released for. It’s safe to assume that Triad Wars will definitely be aimed at the new PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, featuring a next-gen open-world filled to the brim with criminal activity.
With only a year to go before release, expect United Front to start releasing screenshots and other media to promote the new title. I for one am anxiously waiting for its debut trailer.
Sleeping Dogs managed to sell 1.75 million units in its first eight months with Square Enix calling it a failure.
