New Game In Sleeping Dogs Universe Coming From United Front And Square Enix

By Ishaan . October 7, 2013 . 12:51pm

Sleeping Dogs developer United Front Games are working on a new game set in the same universe as Sleeping Dogs, titled Triad Wars, the studio announced today. Here’s what they have to say about it:


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.


We’ll have more to report on Triad Wars as details are announced.

    The term “universe” being increasingly used by Square Enix is beginning to send up warning flags. I’d really like it if this was just a big sandbox like Sleeping Dogs and not some awful multiplayer thing, Square.

    • InfectedAI

      Sounds to me more like they want to turn all their hits into franchises. Like how Deus Ex: HR had an iPad game and has a sequel in the works. Sounds like they’re hoping to give Sleeping Dogs various sequels.

  • TheExile285


  • Teepo 64

    This sounds Wei cool, but the title and the fact they didn’t say it’s a sequel might hint that it’s a multiplayer spin-off game.

    • Namuro

      Dammit! You sir, earned an upvote from me just because of that silly pun…

  • Lloyd Christmas

    Sleeping Dogs surprised me and turned out to be quite the great game. It kept me occupied till GRAV so I’m hoping this is something similar to the original.

  • ddh819

    i hope it’s not some mobile CCG or tower defense game

  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    Browser based social game

  • Jordan Coleman

    Hope it’s an actual full fledged console/pc game.

  • DragKudo

    PsychadelicSnake is going to bust a load when he hears about this.

  • ndjn3979

    I’ll buy.

  • Tom_Phoenix

    I’m still waiting for a GOTY-type release of Sleeping Dogs.

    • TheExile285

      SE doesn’t do that often :V

      • Tom_Phoenix

        True, but since Sleeping Dogs is a more Western-oriented title, I’m hoping it might get the GOTY Edition treatment.

    • xzeldax3

      Honestly, the only DLCs you really need are Year of the Snake and Nightmare at North Point (even then, it’s really short). All the rest are mainly cosmetic stuff. There’s like 2-3 others which contain a extra random mission or two, but aren’t really worth it.

    Fuming Fat Cat in business attire during a Squeenix meeting:
    And ya bettah sell 10 million this time or ya done for kid! Ya here me?! Done for! *licks whiskers and puffs on cigar*

  • z_merquise

    So the official reveal of this one would still be at 2014. It surely is a long wait so I hope it won’t disappoint.

  • Byas

    Inb4 iOS.
    Although I really hope it’s something good.

  • Warboss Aohd

    good newz if not a Mobile game.

  • Syn

    Triad wars sounds like a browser social game…… Really hope its a full fledged console/pc game and not some mobile/browser quick moneygrab.

  • Demandred

    As long as it has got karaoke, I’m set.

    • xzeldax3

      A karaoke rhythm game for iOS & Android. Wei sings random American hits! 3 songs included for free, but you must pay a extra $2 per DLC song!

  • leingod

    This game got far less attention than it deserved. Nice to know there’s gonna be a sequel!

  • Scrooge_McDuck

    Considering Matsuda’s statement in the recent interview, at best this would be something like Final Fantasy Agito.

  • JustThisOne

    Whether it’s a full fledged game or not, it’s still a weird name. It doesn’t sound as serious as something like the triads should be, haha.

  • Shady Shariest

    “When Triads are abandoned, they are put up for auction…”

  • Kalis Konig

    Triad Wars…the title alone screams mobi social game.

  • Something online based? Maybe like a cross between Planetside 2 and GTA
