Triad Wars has been in beta for quite some time now, but today we learn that the project will not be going ahead as planned and that development...

    Triad Wars has been in a beta stage for just over 5 months now, and it is becoming clear that plans didn't go as expected for United Front Games. United Front Games is a video game studio that has helped develop a few different games, on top of also making their own game known as Sleeping Dogs.

    The beta was released as a test to see if players would truly indulge themselves into another one of their games and enjoy hours upon hours of gameplay. Many reviews and feedback emails sent to the Canadian development team have been anything but positive. The feedback has shown the team that maybe they need to change up their style of game development rather than come out with another Sleeping Dogs like game, because we have enough free roam games as it is.

    john_UFG, an administrator over at United Front Games released an official statement today regarding the future of Triad Wars. In his post he said
    On top of the game being axed, players may also be even more upset after realizing that all of the in game gold they spent their money on will be going to waste. Luckily for anyone who invested in these microtransactions, John also said "To help you enjoy these final 4 weeks we’re going to make Gold available free of charge and we’ll shortly be posting news on the forums about how to deal with refunds of unused Gold". What do you think? Are you upset about the game shutting down? Leave your thoughts below!

    Damn, I remember playing Sleeping Dogs and thinking that although it was very good, it was also kind of generic. But a well-executed kind of generic. I think that deciding to take a different direction is totally the right thing to do, because when it comes to free roam I think JC3 will dominate the entire genre for a while (screw The Division)

      Most people don't like JC3, for good reason. I don't see it dominating anything and I certainly can't picture it beating The Division.

      While your point about a lot of people dislike for it is valid, I still think that after they fix it,in the long run JC3 will outlast The Division, but I suppose we'll see!

    Never heard of it but Sleeping Dogs was pretty cool so I'm sure this would of been.
