Sleeping Dogs
Sleeping Dogs Dev Working on Next-Gen Title, According to Job Ad

View author's profile

Sleeping Dogs developer United Front Games is already cooking up its next title, according to a recently job advertisement.

The ad calls for a network / multiplayer programmer to assist in the creation of a title for the Xbox 720 and/or the PlayStation 4. Or whatever they’ll be called.

“We are looking for an experienced network programmer to work with our online team to develop the multiplayer features of our next-gen console title,” says the ad. No more relevant info is revealed.

So, what is it? The safe money says Sleeping Dogs 2, but it could also be a sequel to the PS3 racer LittleBigPlanet Karting, or something else entirely. As we seem to have written on all too many posts today, we’ll have to wait and see.

Sleeping Dogs is one of the most graphically advanced games ever made... on PC. I assume you are talking about the graphics of the 360 version. Much like Far Cry 3, Sleeping Dogs is a prime example of why we need new consoles (from a technical perspective). X360 hardware is almost a decade old now, and it's holding developers back.

But if you played the PC version you would have had your "GTA killer" as you put it. Personally, I still think GTA/Red Dead/Rockstar are in a class of its own, but Sleeping Dogs comes in second for my favourite game of that type, followed by Saints Row 1 in third.

@2 there's more DLC for Sleeping Dogs? Balls! I hope it doesn't have achievements like Zodiac, I traded my copy on after 100%ing it.

Sleeping dogs impressed me with it's melee focus, I'd abandon a gun kill to throw people into fridges, phone boxes or just to break their limbs.

OT::: I'm only going to say that I hope the next console for Xbox won't be called Xbox 720. That sounds just ridiculous and a total cliche. Anyway I never played this game so I have nothing to say about it. :)

-- I came for story!

Sleeping Dogs doesn't need a sequel! The first game was great, let it have its moment in the glory without butchering it with sequels.

If it is indeed Sleeping Dogs 2, I hope they implement a larger game world and longer story this time around - that game ended far too quickly.

@13 - Nah, the campaign was forgettable and lacked identity. It took moments from classic cinema like the gunfight in the hospital (Hard Boiled) but refused to plagiarise it completely but without adding anything new.

I actually had some ideas for a potential multiplayer but I doubt anyone wants to hear them.

I was under the impression that Sleeping Dogs didn't sell we'll despite being well reviewed. I hope I'm wrong, but I know I've seen more than once that sales were far below expectations.

Consider Sleeping Dogs is really a True Crime game in disguise, I'd like them to take it to a different city. Personally I'd love to see an open world game set in somewhere like London perhaps, but since the name change they may be limited to asian countries so maybe something like Japan?

The next game will be called Creeping Mogs, involving extremely silent ninja cats as your enemies. You heard it here first guys.

To be honest with you all that Sleeping Dogs is great game last year that Square Enix released and year before Sleeping Dogs they released brilliant Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I wish Square Enix announce soon for their next big August game just like they did last year with SD and 2011 for DE: HR.

Gameplay and graphics is fantastic in SD. I hope United Front Games is in works with Sleeping Dogs 2 on next generation consoles but if it not then it should be new IP franchise start with then once it is done they should planning and in developing with SD 2 afterward. :D

Look forward for United Front Games's upcoming title. :D

Little Big Planet Karting? Please. Do some research at least. It was Mod Nation Racers and I owned it when I had a PS 3. Truly a great game and I would love to see it on 360. Sleeping Dogs however, got a bit tedious for me at the end though with all the stat grinding. Looked pretty at least.

@26 - Nope. Activision decided to turn a game already in development into a new True Crime game. Given the True Crime was incredibly tarnished after a bland first game and an apparently bug-riddled mess of a second, I can't see why they wanted to resurrect it.
