One of United Front Games’ producers has seemingly confirmed the news that the studio is no more.
Currently mourning the best job I've ever had, and the most wonderful team I've ever worked with.
The end of a great era.

Their upcoming title Smash+Grab is no longer available on Steam, even though it seemed fans and press were excited for it.
The studio worked on titles such as ModNation Racers, LittleBigPlanet Karting, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and Sleeping Dogs. This is going to leave many people disappointed at the idea there will probably never be a Sleeping Dogs 2. Some are hopeful Square will see it right, but others speculate that the publisher is concerned with other, bigger titles like Final Fantasy, Hitman and Tomb Raider, and will probably wave a hearty goodbye to the studio and their franchises.
As it stands however, the studio has not given any word on their future, or the future of their games. While Smash+Grab purchase links are no longer there, the page and marketing are, and the website is still advertising.
Keep your eyes peeled, people!
