Sleeping Dogs 2 Possible!

Sleeping Dogs 2

Developer United Front Games would like to make Sleeping Dogs 2 if fans are happy with the first game. The developer said this after publisher Square Enix hinted Sleeping Dogs could be turned into a franchise if the first game does well critically and financially.

This news is not surprising, since it was originally in development at Activision as the third game in the True Crime series, until it was canceled and Square Enix bought the rights to the game under a new name.

  • To quote Sleeping Dogs producer Dan Sochan:

    “Square Enix clearly believe in Sleeping Dogs. I mean they’ve talked about it possibly becoming a franchise for them.” -Sleeping Dogs producer

    “[Square Enix] clearly believe in it. I mean they’ve talked about it possibly becoming a franchise for them. […] I think that they’ve helped establish this game’s identity, and helped to differentiate between the large number of other open-world games out there, so we’re not just going to be buried by the large number of sequel titles coming out later this year.

    So there are elements they’ve brought in to try and ensure a long tail, that there are reasons to come back to the game even after you’ve finished the main story, and maybe put us in a position where we can make a sequel if the game does well.

    I think that there are a lot of different ways in terms of where we could take the series. Right now we ‘re hoping that the fans continue to show excitement for the product. More than anything else, though, we want feedback. We don’t just want to say ‘Ok…this is how we see a Sleeping Dogs 2 going’.

    We want to hear what gamers think, what aspects of the game they enjoyed the most, we want them to be able to go ‘If you do a sequel, you should totally do this…’ and so on. So of course we’ve considered it, and we’ll have to see how Sleeping Dogs does, but this is new ground for us and so we really want to make sure that the fans are happy.

    I think one of the most requested addition to Sleeping Dogs 2 will be for the developer to flesh out the relationships element of the game beyond one short date. What do you think?

    OCTOBER 8, 2013 UPDATE: Developer has confirmed “Sleeping Dogs 2: Triad Wars” for release in 2014!!
    To quote: “We’re making a new game! We can’t say a lot about it rightnow, but you might have read about a trademark registration for something called Triad Wars? Well, we’re super-excited that it’s another game based in the Sleeping Dogs universe.”

    • What if Wei went to Thailand? That’d be pretty cool. A chance to explore the seedy underworld of Bangkok or something like that. Learn new fighting styles, have a stronger supporting cast, a more interactive environment I like the idea of being able to go to San Fran and link up with King and dive into Wei’s past, but it wouldn’t feel like Sleeping Dogs, maybe make that a DLC. Or be able to travel to other area’s in China like Shanghai? Also, it’d be cool to customize Wei a little more, like tattoos, hairstyles, better car customization. And to have better cop missions. I mean they were fun and all but they felt like a waste of time and I was A LOT more interested in the Triad missions.

      What do I like most about the first? EVERYTHING!! It’s so refreshing to have near perfect controls for vehicles, etc and to not have to put up with vulgarity and attempts at adolescent humor every 2 minutes like other games of this genre. The story is actually super! It’s the first story in a game in quite a while that’s actually held my interest. I actually care about the characters. There’s so much to do…I LOVE IT!! The melee fighting is very well done unlike other similar games (which usually are awkward at best). I could go on and on about how cool the game is. It’s my favorite one of these open world games so far. Can’t wait for a second one!

      I would love a sleeping dogs 2 but I have no idea how they would go about it. It would be hard to continue Wei’s story. Maybe a new protagonist, no prequels or I will explode.

      Oh my, one thing I hate from Sleeping Dogs is that the story wasn’t long enough! But overall, it is completely awesome!

    • LiemJie

      I also love the melee fighting, it’s rare to find a game with super great melee fighting nowadays. And I’m pretty bored with the gunfightings

      Continue the story about his involvement in the gangs.Maybe online co-op, and if they’re gonna put him back in the states, make it a DLC, not a sequel.

      sd was an amazing game ans I hope there will be a second one. I really hope that sd2 stays in China but also have different gangs from other places in Asia join in. also keep wei shen as the main character also make it that u have more choices like with gf and stuff. one important thing is don’t make it like gta. keep it in Hong Kong/China

    • I love sleeping dogs, I think wei shen is a solid character and should definitely be kept for any possible sequels. I personally feel like this game gave an experience that grand theft auto could never really provide even though that is a great series. With that being said sleeping dogs is my favorite open world game. I anticipate seeing a sequel and look for changes like better dating missions and a new awesome location like Tokyo Japan perhaps. Heck, London wouldn’t be a bad idea. -Montgomery Russell 14 years old

      I absolutely loved this game! Once I got it I played it non-stop. Once I beat it, I immediately downloaded some of the dl content and it was pretty good, but definitely want a Sleeping Dogs 2. I would like the story line to be longer. The game just felt too short! That’s how good it was.
