Square Enix London launches Sleeping Dogs

Game development studio Square Enix London has announced plans to launch Sleeping Dogs, an open-world action game set in Hong Kong.

The title will be made available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, with Square Enix working in conjunction with United Front Games to develop the game.

Players will take on the role of undercover cop Wei Shen as he attempts to take down the notorious Hong Kong Triads from the inside and copes with the pressures of leading a double life, questioning his own motives and who he can trust.

Stephen Van Der Mescht, executive producer at United Front Games, said the game is going to offer an "intense and immersive experience".

"The extensive experience both our studios have in creating compelling openworld gameplay and rich and rewarding combat makes for a perfect partnership," added Mr Van Der Mescht.

Square Enix Europe, the parent company of Square Enix London, is responsible for a number of famous titles such as Deus Ex 3: Human Revolution and Final Fantasy XIV.
