United Front Games is a Canadian development studio based in Vancouver. They currently create titles for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. They are the developers of ModNation Racers and the critical and commercial success Sleeping Dogs in addition to collaborating with several other studios on projects like Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition (Crystal Dynamics) and Halo: The Master Chief Collection (343 Industries).
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.

Recently completed was a next-gen release of Sleeping Dogs for the PS4 and Xbox One called Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition, which was released on October 14, 2014.
