Sleeping Dogs Developers Ink Deal With Nexon For Their Next Game

By Eugene . June 26, 2014 . 2:31pm

Game publisher Nexon has inked a deal with Sleeping Dogs developers United Front Games to publish the studio’s next game.


Scheduled for next year, United Front Games will be coming out with a free-to-play title for Nexon. No further details were announced.


This follows Nexon’s recent trend of snapping up rights to publish Western titles, including Human Element by dev studio Robotoki and Splash Damage’s Dirty Bomb online shooter. Splash Damage did the multiplayer game Brink, and Batman: Arkham Origin’s multiplayer.

    I’m just going to convince myself that United Front is just making a F2P kart racer instead of a F2P Sleeping Dogs.

    • Solomon_Kano

      I’d imagine that the Sleeping Dogs IP is wrapped up tight with Square Enix, so kart racer is probably the better bet. Or something completely different.

  • Shippoyasha

    Oh god why. This better not impact Sleeping Dogs and other games they want to do.

    • Anewme…Again

      They are only publishing, so i don’t think it will impact much.

      • Kaetsu

        You underestimate Nexon.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Well, Triad Wars has been in the works since 2013 at the latest, so I don’t imagine they’re taking away from that to make whatever this is. If they’ve got time to work on something new, it’s likely because their work on Triad Wars is nearing completion.

    United Front also made Modnation Racers and LBP Karting, so it could be a racing game.

      I sure hope so.

        Don’t worry, I’m sure they’ll find some way to force you to Pay 2 Die also.

    That’s…not really something to brag about to be honest.

    But good for them getting work, one of my favorite up and coming developers.

  • I like Nexon (still playing Dragon Nest and Vindictus), and I like United Front (Modnation Racers and Sleeping Dogs are amazing, underrated games). Hopefully this is gonna be great!
