True Crime becomes Sleeping Dogs

One of the games I had been looking forward was True Crime: Hong Kong. I loved the True Crime games and  I was gutted when Activision announced that it was one of the titles scrapped in its cull of 2011.

Well, now it's back with a new name and publisher. Square Enix London and United Front Games have joined forces to bring the newly named Sleeping Dogs to a platform near you in second half of 2012. To go with the announcement is this amazing live action trailer to set the mood...

From today's announcement press release:

Sleeping Dogs catapults players into the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, tasked with taking down one of the world’s most fearsome criminal organisations from the inside... the Hong Kong Triads. As players explore the bustling and crowded Hong Kong island, through its neon-lit side streets and sprawling street markets, an incredible story unfolds of loyalty and betrayal, where Wei begins to question his own motives as he is sucked in deeper than he could ever imagine.

“From the moment you pick up the controller and experience the blend of driving, close combat and shooting you know you’re playing something fresh and a bit special,” said Lee Singleton, General Manager of Square Enix London Studios. “Sleeping Dogs has one of the best melee combat systems out there – it’s super brutal with devastating takedown moves, and when added to UFG’s proven heritage in driving games, a first class story and the vibrant backdrop of the Hong Kong underworld we get a fiery recipe with fun written all over it.”
So the end of 2012 is looking good as well. I look forward to getting some more information on this great look title.
