Sleeping Dogs Developer United Front Games Shutting Down?

United Front Games, the team behind 2012’s critically acclaimed Sleeping Dogs as well as much less warmly received Triad Wars appears to be shutting down.

The rumor began circulating from a thread on NeoGAF from a well known insider, and was backed up when the developers latest game, Smash+Grab was pulled from Steam. The Steam page is still viewable, but the game, which is currently in Early Access, is not available for purchase.

While this is still a rumor, it’s rare to see a game be completely pulled from Steam in Early Access without something going on behind the scenes. We will keep you updated as the story breaks.
