Developer United Front Games have announced that the Sleeping Dogs spinoff Triad Wars will be shutting down next month. The beta, which has been playable since earlier this year, will close permanently on January 20 at 12 p.m. PST. The developer is no longer accepting real-money purchases for the title. Announced last year, the game was billed as an online open-world action adventure PC game.
The full post on the developer’s site is below:
"Since the start of the Triad Wars Closed Beta this year, diligent Enforcers have run rampant through the streets of Hong Kong, killing rivals and building Empires. During this time we have gathered immense amounts of feedback, information, and data on the game. We've loved seeing how you've played Triad Wars but we know it wasn't right for many of you so we're letting you know today that we are going to close the beta and service on January 20th 2016 at 12 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. That's 4 weeks from today and over this time we're going to leave the game up and running for you to continue to enjoy but we will not be accepting any more purchases. To help you enjoy these final 4 weeks we're going to make Gold available free of charge and we'll shortly be posting news on the forums about how to deal with refunds of unused Gold. Thank you very much for all the testing, feedback and support!"
It’s unclear what this means for the future of the Sleeping Dogs franchise, but keep an eye on Gameranx for any further news.
