What is the game Sleeping Dogs about?
What happened to Sleeping Dogs? Sleeping Dogs’ difficult and prolonged development began in 2008. The game was announced in 2009 as part of the True Crime series but was canceled by Activision Blizzard in 2011, as a result of the project’s delays and budget issues.
Why is the game called Sleeping Dogs? The name of the game may be a reference to the phrase “let sleeping dogs lie”. If someone is told to let sleeping dogs lie, it means that they shouldn’t disturb a situation as it would result in trouble or complications.
Is Sleeping Dogs based on a true story? Sleeping Dogs based its Triad plotline on real-world conflicts between crime families, namely the Sun Yee On’s clashes with the 14K and Wo Shing Wo (in the game the gangs are known as “Sun On Yee” and “18K”). Many characters are name-changed versions of Hong Kong underworld figures.
