Sleeping Dogs was pretty great, folks. We reviewed it back when it launched, and we walked away really happy.

It's an open world affair with Grand Theft Auto and Batman: Arkham City influences. It takes place in Hong Kong, and it presents some really wonderful characters and moments.

United Front Games, the developers behind the effort, and Square Enix must have liked the title's results, becuase the studio has announced that they're currently working on another game in the Sleeping Dogs universe.

The word comes directly from UFG's official site.

So, we're making a new game! We can't say a lot about it right now, 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, it's something we've wanted to do for ages, and we're very happy to be working with Square Enix again… but that's all we can give you for the time being – we'll have more information about what the game's going to be in 2014.

And that's the extent of it. A new game in the Sleeping Dogs universe will be released… soon. We'll have more in, well, 2014.
