About a year ago Activision canceled the release of True Crime: Hong Kong because the company felt the game would not bring in the buckets of money Activision has come to expect from the titles it publishes. The fate of True Crime: Hong Kong remained in limbo until Square Enix purchased the rights from Activision later in the year. Square Enix is finally ready to announce it has renamed True Crime: Hong Kong to Sleeping Dogs. The trademark that was discovered recently wasn’t for a new Kane and Lynch game after all.
Sleeping Dogs is scheduled to be released in the second half of 2012 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. It stars an undercover cop named Wei Shen who is working to take down the Triads within Hong Kong. Sleeping Dogs will retain the open-world gameplay as originally conceived. You’ll be shooting and kicking people all day in this game.
Sleeping Dogs may not sell as well as Red Dead Redemption, but it has an opportunity to still turn a profit.
