The PC-only spiritual successor to Sleeping Dogs is being culled without ever being fully released.
Free-to-play shooter Triad Wars, which was announced in late 2014, launched in closed beta in early 2015. Developer United Front, however, has announced that it is to close completely on January 20th.
Since the start of the Triad Wars closed beta, diligent Enforcers have run rampant through the streets of Hong Kong, killing rivals and building Empires,” it said. During this time we have gathered immense amounts of feedback, information, and data on the game.
We've loved seeing how you've played Triad Wars but we know it wasn't right for many of you so we're letting you know today that we are going to close the beta. That's four weeks from today and over this time we're going to leave the game up and running for you to continue to enjoy but we will not be accepting any more purchases.
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.”
