We recently reported that Square Enix has purchased the rights to publish True Crime: Hong Kong - and according to a new update from their London arm (who distributed Just Cause 2 and Batman: Arkham Asylum in Japan), they've opted for a 2012 release window and a full rebrand. Apparently they "fell in love with [the game] and instantly recognised the huge potential in the game and the team."
Square Enix London confirms that United Front Games, the original developers who suffered a massive round of layoffs last February, will continue to work on the project - but that it will ship under a new name. Activision previously stated that the project wasn't "good enough" for them... so here's hoping that another year of polish will prove them wrong. [Square Enix]
Neil Davey got hands-off with True Crime: Hong Kong over a year ago - and reckoned that it was nearly ready for release back in last July.
