ah, teasing from UFG

So, we’re making a new game! We can’t say a lot about it right now, but you might have read about a trademark registration for something called Triad Wars? Well, we’re super-excited that it’s another game based in the Sleeping Dogs universe, it’s something we’ve wanted to do for ages, and we’re very happy to be working with Square Enix again… but that’s all we can give you for the time being – we’ll have more information about what the game’s going to be in 2014.

Will it be a single player game, or maybe a MP game?  Triad Wars makes it sound like a Facebook game though....

Woohoo!  Bummer that we won't hear anything until next year. 

The title certainly makes it sound like a multiplayer game, but I'll be bummed if they don't have a robust single player since that's what the first game was all about.

I loved Sleeping Dogs so I was super excited to see this announcement. I do hope it's single player focused, though.

Given that they're turning Legacy of Kain into a f2p multiplayer shooter, I'm guessing this will be a f2p tower defense game or something like that.

really, it's the natural progression of all games SE makes.  They've already hinted at this with the next Deus Ex.  I expect a Hitman f2p MP game followed up by Tomb Raider and Just Cause.

Restarted Sleeping Dogs (although, I never finished it during my initial playthrough which got wiped when I reformatted) in anticipation.

The official announcement of this is supposed to be coming tomorrow (Monday).  Word has it that Triad Wars is a PC-only online game.

Yep, sounds like it's true. 

They launched this explanatory trailer thing tonight and it seems to be some sort of combination of Sleeping Dogs, GTA Online, APB Reloaded and Mafia Wars or something.  I'm still not exactly clear.  I'll try to give it a shot, but I would have much rather preferred they had made another single player game like Sleeping Dogs.

You can sign up for the beta over at their website

Some choice quotes from their Reddit AMA that gives a little more insight and makes it seem more like Clash of Clans or Mafia Wars or something:

Quote
Have you guys been working on Sleeping Dogs 2, or has your focus been completely on Triad Wars?
Right now we are totally focused on making Triad Wars as awesome as it could be - but would love to continue making games in the Sleeping Dogs universe.

Quote
What is Triad Wars going to be exactly? I understand that it utilizes the combat from Sleeping Dogs but what is the main gameplay hook?
All the great action mechanics from Sleeping Dogs is at the heart of Triad Wars but we've expanded on that with strategy based empire building components. Which really changes it up.

Quote
Will there be any direct PvP in the game? If so, will it be mandatory or optional? Additionally, what sort of cooperative content will be available for people that want to play together?
You'll be playing against real players online asynchronously

Quote
Hi UFG. I love Sleeping Dogs and am a big fan. However, I'm concerned about the Triad Wars being strictly an online game (like GTA online). Is it true the game will be like that? Or will there be a story line a la Wei Shen?
Triad Wars is more about the story you create for your character within the universe of Sleeping Dogs than a single persons story
