No Wei: Another Sleeping Dogs game on the way, called Triad Wars

Sleeping Dogs

Please be a worthy successor. Please. PLEASE.

In what’s potentially the best news of the day, have confirmed that they’re working on another game.

Recent trademarks popped up for something called , and United Front have today confirmed on the company blog that Triad Wars is “another game based in the Sleeping Dogs universe” and that they’re working on it with . They’re unfortunately reticent to give any actual details; all they’ll say is that it’s something they’ve “wanted to do for ages” and that we’re not going to hear anything else about it until 2014.

I loved the hell out of Sleeping Dogs, so I’m obviously pleased, but I’m also tempering my expectations somewhat. Nowhere in that blurb is Triad Wars called a sequel – just a game in the same universe – and, more worryingly, the name honestly makes me think of something other than an open-world drivey-shootey game. It sounds more… iOS-y. Or maybe MOBA-y. I really hope I’m wrong, but this is a Square Enix-published game we’re talking about. Wouldn’t be the first time.

On the plus side, though, iOS and social games don’t really seem to be United Front’s thing, and I can’t imagine they’d have “wanted to do” a game like that. Equally, I don’t think something like that would have this lengthy a gestation cycle – if we’re not even going to hear about it until 2014, it’s got be something reasonably complex.

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst: Triad Wars might be a sequel with new characters. It might be a rip-off of Mafia Wars. Time will tell us whether or not it was worth this news story.
