United Front Games is a Canadian development studio based in Vancouver. They currently create titles for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows. They are the developers of ModNation Racers and the critical and commercial success Sleeping Dogs.
United Front Games was founded in 2007. Its first official title ModNation Racers, a "User-Generated Content" kart racing game, began production in 2008 and was released on May 21, 2010 in some countries and on May 25, 2010 in the US.
On August 14, 2012, they released Sleeping Dogs (previously known as True Crime: Hong Kong). While it is widely believed that Sleeping Dogs was originally a True Crime title, it in fact was built from the ground up as an original IP. United Front Games also made LittleBigPlanet Karting with help from the series creators Media Molecule.
They are currently working on an updated version of Sleeping Dogs for the PS4 and Xbox One called Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition, to be released on October 2014. On September 23, 2014, United Front Games announced the sequel to Sleeping Dogs, titled Triad Wars. Triad Wars is an online open-world PC adventure game set in Sleeping Dogs' Hong Kong universe.
