Square Enix rescues True Crime

Canadian studio United Front Games has returned from the brink with the backing of new partner Square Enix, with the Tokyo publisher revealing it will revive the True Crime project.

United Front spent some three years building True Crime: Hong Kong, but in February Activision rocked the studio by unexpectedly cancelling its near-finished project.

Because Activision still owns the True Crime IP, United Front’s game will return under a new name, Square Enix said.

It’s too early to say what the game’s name will be," said Square Enix London Studios chief Lee Singleton in an interview with Gamasutra.

Develop has the full story.
