True Crime: Hong Kong Delayed

Activision has announced that its open world cops-and-robbers game – True Crime: Hong Kong – has been moved into 2011 to give it more development timeThe press release read as follows;

“Activision Publishing has moved the anticipated release date for its upcoming open-world action title, True Crime: Hong Kong, from 2010 to 2011 in order to give the development team more time to deliver the high-quality entertainment experience they envision for the game.”

This is good news for fans of the franchise, as recent hands on previews with the game weren’t exactly glowing with praise.  The word ‘average’ springs to mind.  Let’s hope they can turn it around.


  1. More time is good. We’re gonna drown in top titles this fall and winter anyhow!

  2. Might be better now

  3. Havent played this series since LA version on PS2, that was pretty boring. Massive area with not a lot of substance i thought.

    I think the whole open world crime genre is getting a bit stale now anyway

    • I loved the first one, but it wasn’t such a stale concept by then. They are going to have to do something very special with this to make it stand out, but I have a feeling they will not.

  4. I have a feeling that they’re going to make True Crime:HK into a GTA style, but with opposite hero…

    • Erm… That’s what the whole game series has been about…
      I also liked how the game never took itself seriously with the cheats xD play as a donkey :D

  5. Slightly off topic but when is ‘This is Vegas’ due for release ? It’s been in production for a looong, looong time and I always thought that it looked like a True Crime-alike but better, much better….

  6. Aw, I was waiting for this game (I didn’t really liked the previous one, but this game’s name was only changed to true crime about 1 or 2 years after it started being developed)… They got devs that were from R*, Radical and many other big companys. And United Front Games have never let me down. I suppose I can buy 007 now (I’ve bought all of them since Tommorow Never Dies exept one developed by the company we now know as Visceral Games, Agent Under Fire, I belive, and Racing).
