Starting to leak out now.

Big ups to my friends and former colleagues, it's a tough go of it in the independent studio space.

I'll raise a pork bun this week in your honour.

Aww! I really liked Sleeping Dogs. Let's hope they can find another fine place to work at!

Awful news if true. I got a lot of enjoyment out of Modnation and LBP Karting on the PS3. I hope everyone can find work again quickly.

Incidentally, where does this leave Smash + Grab? It looked really promising to me.

Guess Smash+Grab didn't work out for them even with the free weekend.

RIP. May they find many a meat bun in their future endeavours.

Best wishes to every one that lost their job. United Front was a gem and it's unfortunate that Triad Wars imploded which seems to have been what did them in.

Damn, they made some really good games. Sleeping Dogs remains my favorite open world gangster game. Feels bad, man.

It's unfortunate they had to made Triad Wars, and not Sleeping Dogs 2.

Everyone from the beginning warned them of the misstep they took. The beta was so poorly received that they shut it down, and now along with it, the studio.

ModNation Racers is an AWESOME game.
It's a shame the loading times are HORRIBLE.
So horrible, you don't want to switch maps. lol

That sucks, Sleeping Dog's was one of my favourite games of the last gen. On the other hand releasing an early access game then closing a couple of weeks later seems a little sketchy?
