Sleeping Dogs developer United Front Games is working on a free-to-play game, to be published by Nexon America and released in 2015.

That's about the sum total of what's known of the new game. United Front also worked on ModNation Racers and LittleBigPlanet Karting, and there's plenty of vehicle play in Sleeping Dogs, so could their F2P title also be heavily vehicle-based? An online kart-racing MMO, perhaps? We rather like the sound of that.

So, what do you think/hope the new game will be? Speculate away! (Or did you just click on this article because there's a picture of a cute doggy up there? D'awwwwww....)

Nexon..one of the top hated gaming publishers.Seriously Devs in the long run It's better to just publish your own games,like Enmasse.

i'm hoping it will be something like apb but nexon always blocks their games to europe so stupid instead of investing in european servers

Nexon isn't as bad compared to other companies. The lagging portion is done through hyper-v with their virtual environment SOMETIMES and i would of rather went VM sphere to manage the virtual environment. They're actually in the process of revamping part of their network infrastructure to accommodate reliability and stability over performance. 'Performance? what kind of performance impact?' I am talking about the kind of processing performance that manages all those read/write/transferred data, not your connection or theirs. Servers are always a monster when processing data.

The lag fest you guys are talking about isn't in Nexon itself, there is probably 75+ reasons why OUTSIDE of their company and i'm not going to go through them all. If you're a tech guy and disagree, you simply don't know your stuff.

Yup, if it's Nexon we can already forget about this game.
My only hope is that the devs will wake up fast and change publisher asap.

I don't know why but I had the most fun with Sleeping Dogs than with any other open world shooter ever, even more fun than any GTA.
