Square Enix London have announced that they've picked up the leftovers of True Crime: Hong Kong, which was cancelled by Activision earlier this year. It's still under development by United Front Games, but Square Enix have said that the game will be retitled, likely removing the True Crime moniker.
"It's too early to say what the name will be," said Square Enix London's general manager Lee Singleton. "I can honestly say I think this is going to be pretty straightforward."
True Crime: Hong Kong was originally in development for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC and scheduled for release this November before Activision scrapped the project. United Games will continue to work on it with Square Enix London managing the project.
"When we first saw and got our hands on the game we fell in love with it," he said. "It's one of those games where you don't want to put the controller down; it's what we call 'sticky.'"
"When we met the team at United Front Games, it was a done deal in our eyes -- we instantly recognized the huge potential in the game and the team. UFG is an incredibly talented team, who have individually worked on some of the biggest games in our industry, and this talent shines through from the moment you walk in the door."
