United Front Games, the studio behind Sleeping Dogs, has been a bit quiet lately. After a trademark registration for Triad Wars popped up, however, they couldn't just sit back and see their fans flounder in speculation. Today their official website was updated with a brief news post confirming they were hard at work on their next game. Introducing Triad Wars, another title set in the Sleeping Dogs universe and set to be published by Square Enix.
Here's the meat of the news post that United Front Games published today:
"So, we’re making a new game! We can’t say a lot about it right now, but you might have read about a trademark registration for something called Triad Wars? Well, 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… but that’s all we can give you for the time being – we’ll have more information about what the game’s going to be in 2014."
While Sleeping Dogs didn't find initial commercial success, through word of mouth it did make its mark last year. Suddenly people realized that open world games by nature are outstanding, just because you can run around and kick people whenever you want. It's great to hear the delayed success the game found game United Front the buzz they needed to start work on a sequel/spin-off.
United Front Games says we can expect more information on Triad Wars in 2014 and signs off on their asking fans to continue sharing their interest with them.
