On September 23, 2014, United Front Games announced Triad Wars. Originally targeted for an early 2015 release on PC, Triad Wars is an online open-world adventure game set in Sleeping Dogs' Hong Kong universe. However, in December 2015 United Front announced the January 2016 closure of the Triad Wars open beta, and as of the closure have not denied that the project is completely cancelled.
