Sleeping Dogs just turned ten years old! The sandbox title first launched for the PS3 on the 14th August 2012, and it's safe to say that it's fondly remembered. At the time, Sleeping Dogs didn't set the world alight with rave review scores or super high sales figures, but it did gain significant traction over the years that followed. Whether it was through positive word of mouth or because of comparisons to open world blockbusters like Grand Theft Auto — or a bit of both — the martial arts-infused adventure ended up resonating with a lot of people.
Naturally, fans have always wanted a sequel — but it hasn't happened, and at this point, it might never happen. A massive shame, given the game's fairly unique blend of police drama, bare-knuckle brawling, and often chaotic sandbox design. It's always felt like a sequel could have really taken the title's formula to the next level.
But we don't want to get bogged down in sequel-less despair, here. We wrote this article so that we could all remember the fun times we had with Wei Shen on his campaign of skull-cracking justice. And, if you never got around to actually playing Sleeping Dogs, it's worth noting that Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition exists on PS4 — a rather barebones remaster, but still great fun.
