I enjoyed Grand Theft Auto V and Saints Row IV, but if you pressed me hard enough, I'd say one of my favorite open world games of the past few years was Sleeping Dogs. The game that began as Black Lotus and briefly held the name True Crime: Hong Kong turned out better than I could've ever imagined. The early demos I played were rough, but United Front Games pulled together an amazing game with help from Square Enix.
So I'm excited to hear that United Front is returning to the Sleeping Dogs universe with Triad Wars. The studio just announced the new title, but did not share any details on what we could expect from Triad Wars. A new adventure for Detective Wei Shen? A multiplayer-centric outing? A mobile-only game?
"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," said the developer on its official blog.
So, more Sleeping Dogs! Let us rejoice brothers and sisters! Let our righteous vengeance rain down upon those who would get in the way of our justice! Let the DLC for Triad Wars be as good as the DLC for Sleeping Dogs! Let it be for next-gen systems!
We here at USgamer will let you know more about Triad Wars when we hear about it.
