United Front Games, most known as the developers of the open world hit, Sleeping Dogs, is shutting down. United Front, for a time, tried their hand at free-to-play with Triad Wars, a spin off to Sleeping Dogs, but that saw little success and had was shutdown January of this year.
More recently, they had another game in early access, Smash & Grab, but the closing of the studio means the end of that. United Front Games is allowing refunds to anyone who bought the game, regardless of playtime.
It’s a shame we’ll never see any successor to Sleeping Dogs, free-to-play or otherwise. That game turned out better than anyone expected it too. Unfortunately, though, it would appear that United Front were unable to capitalize on its success well enough.
