Sleeping Dogs wasn't always called Sleeping Dogs. Back in the days when it was being developed under the auspices of Activision, the game was known as True Crime: Hong Kong (and before that, Black Lotus. This is a game of many faces). Dropped by its previous publisher, the game was picked up by Square Enix earlier this year and, in mid-August, should be brought to completion. If the playable demo at Square Enix's booth was any indication, though, Sleeping Dogs should probably sit in development for another six months or so before it hits shelves. It simply doesn't have the level of polish or playability one would expect of a title that's spent so long in development.
