Triad Wars, a Sleeping Dogs successor, is in the works

United Front Games has stated that development is currently underway on a new title that is to be "based in the Sleeping Dogs universe."

Clearing up rumors fueled by the registered trademark "Triad Wars." United Front has said (via IGN) that this idea will be a successor to Sleeping Dogs and is something they’ve always wanted to do. Furthermore, Square Enix will again take on publishing duties, despite expressing disappointment in Sleeping Dogs’ sales figures.

There’s not much else to go on right now, but United Front says we’ll hear much more about the game in 2014.

As a spiritual successor to True Crime and a still-growing IP, is Sleeping Dogs the kind of universe you want to see more of? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
