Remember the short-lived “True Crime: Hong Kong”? It was a reboot for the somewhat broken series, set to be published by Activision. It was cancelled by the gargantuan publisher, and promptly swept under the rug. Square Enix however, has decided to pick up development rights for the abandoned game, though they won’t be putting it out under the “True Crime” brand, as Square Enix doesn’t own the franchise.

So it’s good news for any True Crime fans out there, and it’s definitely some positive buzz for Square Enix. Leave your thoughts in the comment section below, and keep checking RipTen for the latest in gaming news.
