Developer United Front Games has announced they will be closing down Triad Wars‘ closed beta on January 20, 2015. A spin-off of the open world Sleeping Dogs, Triad Wars is an MMO that has been in closed beta since 2013. In-game purchases are no longer available and refunds will be offered for unused Gold, with details on the game’s official forums.

Earlier this month community manager Iain Myers-Smith also posted he would be leaving the developer, but teased, “There will be some super exciting announcements coming in the New Year.” You can view the full statement from United Front Games regarding the closure below.

Since the start of the Triad Wars Closed Beta this year, diligent Enforcers have run rampant through the streets of Hong Kong, killing rivals and building Empires. During this time we have gathered immense amounts of feedback, information, and data on the game. We’ve loved seeing how you’ve played Triad Wars but we know it wasn’t right for many of you so we’re letting you know today that we are going to close the beta and service on January 20th 2016 at 12 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. That’s 4 weeks from today and over this time we’re going to leave the game up and running for you to continue to enjoy but we will not be accepting any more purchases. To help you enjoy these final 4 weeks we’re going to make Gold available free of charge and we’ll shortly be posting news on the forums about how to deal with refunds of unused Gold. Thank you very much for all the testing, feedback and support!
