To note, Square Enix said that they consider Sleeping Dogs one of their 10 major IPs now, so that's definitely getting a sequel.

They do have two teams though (LBP Karting).

Edit:

"Title" as in singular, so perhaps they merged the teams.

Hopefully it's a buddy cop movie where Wei Shen works with Adam Jensen back when he was a cop.

We could have great dialog like:

Commissioner: "Hey Jensen, time to meet your new partner."
Wei Shen: "I'm Wei Shen motherfucker, who are you?"
Jensen: "I didn't ask for this."

I don't care how fucking ridiculous that would be, I want a game with the two of them working as cops.

Free-2-Play plz with microtransactions for costumes and cosmetics and for added SP content after launch. They are already halfway there with all the DLC for SD1. OPEN YOUR EYES. F2P Open-World game is just writing itself now.

half way through the game it turns out the commissioner is actually jc denton:

Commissioner: "Hey Jensen, time to meet your new partner."
Wei Shen: "I'm Wei Shen motherfucker, who are you?"
Jensen: "I didn't ask for this."
Commissioner: "What a shame."

A SE game, like Just Cause 2 multiplayer, hmm. Win!! Allow the PC version to go crazy with the amount of people allowable in MP and it will be so good.

to hunt down Agent 47
To protect Lara from Agent 47

Great news though, I was kinda worried about it since the sales didn't seem that good. But...do we stay with Wei Shen or do we get a new protag? As much as I love him, I'm more inclined to let him stay in pork bun retirement.

I don't know if they'd already be jumping on the Sleeping Dogs 2 train, co-op sounds like a pretty natural evolution. Do a buddy-cop movie set in the depths of Hong Kong - or maybe move the action into Shanghai or Beijing.
As long as I can snap dudes' arms like Slim Jims, I'll be happy.

I'm trying to understand how Sleeping Dogs is a free Playstation Plus game when it's such a recent release. Did the game flop or did the sales just fizzle out?

The commish is clearly Bolo Santosi.

No, and it did especially well in Europe. It's just SCEE has the magic touch when it comes to getting big name Plus titles.
