That's awesome news. I can't wait for the next few games, but I'll stop playing when we reach "Sleeping Dogs XIII" and the game becomes linear.

Great news, does this mean there will be a sequel? Thanks SE.

On Luminous engine and next gen consoles? Hell yes.

Activision used to be like that....and then CoD happened :P

DeadlyFire2120d ago

Well they absorbed something that wasn't even their creation. IW crafted it and Activision said its theirs and will be done their way from now on so IW says Lets go do our own thing. Then Respawn happened and EA is looking over their shoulder at what they are crafting. I see a pattern here.

Square Enix should go back to their roots. START making JRPG's again and STOP trying to be westernize.

Nightfallen2121d ago

Not possible. The reason why they are westernizing is because the market shifted away from those games. on top of that they don't know how to make a proper RPG game anymore. From the moment Squaresoft was bought it went down hill.

How does this hinder their JRPGs what so ever? It's was developed by a studio that wouldn't have any influence on what they do in Japan.

This game (and probably studio) would have not existed if SE didn't pick them up. It's one of the better moves they've made this generation.

i dont think they should stop bringing western franchises to the table and i even like how they branched out with genres but i will agree that they should have some old school jrpgs again. the market is still there for turn based rpgs just look at the pokemon series. it just needs to bring a few new ideas with it and have characters and a battle system worth caring about

zombie addon .... i didnt really expect that for this game.
