Previously-canceled True Crime: Hong Kong sees new life as Sleeping Dogs

Square Enix has rebranded True Crime: Hong Kong, the project it acquired from Activision last August, as Sleeping Dogs, which it will release for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows in the second half of 2012.
Newsbrief: Square Enix has rebranded True Crime: Hong Kong, the project it acquired from Activision last August, as Sleeping Dogs, which it will release for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows in the second half of 2012. Activision cancelled this third entry for the open-world, third-person action game after True Crime: New York City failed to meet sales expectations. Eric Hirshberg, CEO at Activision Publishing, also admitted years ago, "To be blunt, it just wasn't going to be good enough." Square Enix eventually picked up the rights to the project, but not the True Crime name. The publisher's Square Enix London Studios division collaborated with True Crime: Hong Kong's developer United Front Games (ModNation Racers) to complete Sleeping Dogs.
