GSP has been contributing to Sleeping Dogs on an ongoing basis. He’s consulting on elements in the game as well as keeping the public in the loop on the game’s progress.
Sleeping Dogs takes place within Hong Kong, where players assume the role of undercover cop Wei Shen. Intense firefights, adrenalin pumping street chases, and brutal mixed martial art fights can ensue at any moment in the dangerous streets of Hong Kong in the open world of Sleeping Dogs.
Lee Singleton, General Manager, Square Enix London, had the following to say about St. Pierre on the game:
