Sleeping Dogs’ difficult and prolonged development began in 2008. The game was announced in 2009 as part of the True Crime series but was canceled by Activision Blizzard in 2011, as a result of the project’s delays and budget issues. Six months later, Square Enix bought the publishing rights and renamed the game Sleeping Dogs, without the True Crime license, but considered a spiritual successor. During development, United Front staff visited Hong Kong to conduct field research for the visual environments and sound
Upon its release in 2012,the game received positive reviews for its combat,voice acting,experience system and depiction of the city, but its camera and animation were criticized.
Within one year, the game had sold over 1.5 million copies. Shen navigates the world by running, jumping, climbing over obstacles, swimming, and driving cars, boats, and motorcycles. The game had 2 DLC Nightmare in north point and Year of the snake.
to set the game original the game developers took interviews of ex-triad members and Hong Kong retired police officers. the games are set on Hong Kong because of that the development team stayed for a week and clicked 20,000 photos to make the game environment real.

In Intensive care mission one enemy say a dialog line to Wei Shen (ENEMY:-Hey ugly! Tell me where po is,or i shoot your face off!) (Wei Shen :- You`re gonna shoot my face off?For some reason,I just don`t see that happening.) In this dialog the face off is a movie which directed by John Woo is popular by making action movies of Hong Kong.
