United Front Games, best known for working on Sleeping Dogs, has been shut down. The studio was currently working on its new game Smash + Grab which is currently in Early Access on Steam. What will happen to the game is currently unknown.
As reported by GameSpot, Smash + Grab was available to play for fee over the past weekend and offered players the chance to keep playing it for a fee of $17 once the weekend promotion was over.
Whether Smash + Grab will be the last game to be released by United Front Games, or whether it will be scrapped is currently unknown but it looks like we’ve seen the last of its developer.
Sleeping Dogs was arguably United Front’s biggest game and was well reviewed when it was released back in 2012. The open world game was set in Hong Kong and follows an undercover cop trying to bring down the Triads. A definitive edition was released a few years later for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
We hope the good folks over at United Front Games all go on to bigger and better things.
