A new game set in the Sleeping Dogs universe is on the way, United Front Games has announced.

The game was related to the trademarking of something called Triad Wars by Sleeping Dogs publisher Square Enix last week, the studio said.

"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," reads a blog post on United Front’s official website.

The developer promised more information would come next year.

Sleeping Dogs is an excellent open-world crime title set in Hong Kong.
