Juxtaposed with the exciting news of a confirmed Red Dead Sequel, we are now receiving sad news that Sleeping Dogs developer is closing its doors for good.
The studio United Front Games has made a splash in the recent development scene. They successfully made a component GTA competitor in Sleeping Dogs which follows the tale of an ex triad now cop struggling to choose sides in the streets of Hong Kong (I for one loved the game). Other contributions made by the team were two lesser known racing games exclusive to PS3, those being Mod Nation Racers and Little Big Planet Karting.
The saddest news is that the team’s ambitious Crime MMO Smash and Grab has been yanked by Steam and will likely never see the light of day as it only got as far as early access and know other envelopes were eyeing the IP.
