It has been announced that a division of Nexon Co. Ltd., (An international company that focuses on online free to play games.),?Nexon America has entered into an publishing agreement to make a free to play game next year with Sleeping Dogs? developers, United Front Games which also has worked on Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition in Xbox One version and ModNation Racers, a collaboration with LittleBigPlanet Karting and Media Molecule.
United Front chief officer, Stephen van der Mescht said, ?Nexon brings an unparalleled wealth of knowledge of the growing free-to-play market. We are thrilled to partner with a publisher who has an excellent track record of building direct and meaningful relationships with players.?
?We can’t wait to unveil our new title with Nexon America, we’re confident it’s going to be a smash hit.?
Owen Mahoney, president and chief executive officer of Nexon added, “We are committed to bringing a new line-up of AAA-quality free-to-play games to the Western market, and our partnership with United Front Games is another step toward achieving this goal.”
“United Front Games’ team has a great track record of developing successful titles, and we’re looking forward to showing the world what our combined strengths can create in 2015.”
United Front Games confirmed in October 2013 that they are working on a new game titled Triad Wars with Square Enix. And although details were not disclosed that time, the studio said that the game will be based on Sleeping Dog?s universe.
UFG 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… but that’s all we can give you for the time being.”
No other details were revealed about the free to play game, as UFG and Nexon have yet to unveil a title or even a genre for the upcoming ?smash hit?.
Much recently, a retailer has registered an Xbox One and PlasyStation 4 version of Sleeping Dogs to put on sale? on November 21.
