United Front Games has confirmed that is working on a new game in the high-kicking, gun-toting Sleeping Dogs Universe.

Sleeping Dog’s publisher Square Enix recently trademarked Triad Wars and this has become the eventual title, so it sounds like those of you who enjoyed the Hong Kong themed take on GTA’s carnage are in luck.

In an update on its website United Front Games said “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.”

Sleeping Dogs came out in 2012 to considerable critical acclaim, racking up sales of nearly two million copies across PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Originally a resurrection of the ill-fated True Crime series, Sleeping Dogs didn’t do as well as Square Enix had originally hope but nevertheless still crept into profitability. Anything that means more kung-fu is fine by us.

Are you looking forward to a new game in the Sleeping Dogs universe?

Should United Front Games have made it a direct sequel to expand the franchise?

Let us know below!

Yup. The story and the combat is way better (the gunplay not so much, though).

Yes! I LOVED the gang missions in Sleeping Dogs... :)
Hopefully there will be a lot more cop missions like True Crime NYC though...Sleeping Dogs only had gang drug busts. NYC had carjackings, office holdups, assaults, robberies, etc...

Yes I'm so EXCITED about this one. MAybe just a better optimization since games being released nowadays ( Watch Dogs and COD:Ghosts ) have some pretty high system requirments!
But whatever happens I'm gonna buy this game. Enjoyed Sleepings Dogs alot.

OMG that's awesome,now that's what I want to see,not GTA V. :D
I'm sorry GTA V fans,but for me every GTA is the same just with better graphics,but Sleeping Dogs offers a completely new look at the open world crime game.
You aren't like always an American robber or something like that,you're an undercover cop,you are playing in Hong Kong which is a completely new perspective too,you can do good and bad things you don't have to be always the cruel killer. :D

GTA has almost become what COD is, just a repetition of the same idea, over and over again. As you say almost the only difference is that the newest game looks better than the last one.

not really dude, have you played GTA V? The only thing it bears similar to its predecessors is the open world crime stuff. Big heists were added, a brand new, GOOD story that takes you a long time to beat, a bunch of extra stuff to do, it looks better, and feels better than the others. So...don't you EVER compare GTA to CoD.....they are nowhere near the same, plus CoD is annually, GTA is about once every 5 years, not counting DLCs.

say that when you play GTA V, it improves IV in every way possible. Sleeping Dogs was good, and I personally agree it beat GTA IV, at least the base game, but it's not as good as V, imo.

I loved the True Crime series,I was so excited when they said that they're making a new one,and then it got cut off and that wasn't cool,but then OMG Square Enix bought the franchise and I was like this is going to be awesome,and so it was,I hope they make an ultimate open-world game,I'm sure to buy it(also hoping for good optimization) :D

awesome, I LOVE Sleeping Dogs, even so much I bought the 4 story-based DLCs for it, something I didn't think i'd do for a Square Enix game. I hope triad Wars lives up to the reputation of Sleeping Dogs, it has big shoes to fill. A direct sequel would've been nicer though :) unless Triad wars ends up being said sequel.

Melee fighting in multiplayer will be awesome, if this game has a multiplayer mode and if it is similar to Sleeping Dogs in those mechanics

Sleeping Dogs managed to bring a GTX 560 and HD 6950 to their knees on ultra when tomshardware tested it on rigs with i3-3220 and FX-4300 (it was in a comarison of the two CPUs)... Triad Wars will also be a beast...
