Well this came out of nowhere.
It seems that United Front Games, the developer behind Sleeping Dogs, Modnation Racers and LittleBigPlanet Karting, has reportedly shut down.
The studio was developing the title Smash + Grab which hit Steam Early Access on September 27th. That title is no longer available to purchase. Last year the studio cancelled the planned Sleeping Dogs spinoff Triad Wars.
Smith’s Sentiment: This one is rough. It’s always sad to see a developing studio shutdown, but United Front Games was a really talented studio. I thought Modnation Racers was underrated on PS3, and of course Sleeping Dogs was absolutely fantastic. Here’s wishing the best to everyone who worked for the studio.
