Sleeping Dogs developer United Front Games has closed its doors, a source close to the studio tells GameSpot. The Vancouver-based studio was in the midst of developing Smash + Grab, which has now been withdrawn from sale on Steam.
United Front Games producer Jen Timms appeared to confirm the studio’s shutdown via Twitter:
Currently mourning the best job I’ve ever had, and the most wonderful team I’ve ever worked with.
The end of a great era.

Apart from Sleeping Dogs, United Front Games also made LittleBigPlanet Karting and ModNation Racers for PS3, and has also earned its keep collaborating on other larger projects such as Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Disney Infinity.
