True Crime: Sleeping Dogs pegged for August release

/ 7 years ago

True Crime

The title True Crime: Hong Kong, which was held by publisher Activision has been renamed ‘Sleeping Dogs’ and picked up by a new publisher, Square Enix.

According to retailer Future Shop (via Sixth Axis), which tweeted (and then removed) an image of the logo that had an August 2012 release date, supposedly from a Destination PlayStation event in the US. The Sleeping Dogs trademark, was in fact picked up last month by Square Enix, which many mistakenly associated with a new Kane & Lynch game.

The last True Crime game was a multiformat title, so I would hope this one is coming to PC, 360, PS3 and maybe even Wii U or Vita given they have both should have enough power for a direct port of the game.

“True Crime: Hong Kong was playable from start to finish and virtually complete in terms of content before Activision canned it.” United Front Games told CVG recently.  If it’s true and it all holds down for an August release, best bet would be to keep your eyes open for it at this years E3 in June.
