Gaming Q&A with Dan Sochan, Producer on Sleeping Dogs

Q&A with Dan Sochan, Producer on Sleeping Dogs


- Advertisement -

This week we got to go to the launch party for the new Square Enix game Sleeping Dogs, where we managed to grab one of the producers, Dan Sochan, for a quick Q&A.


Sleeping Dogs catapults players into the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, tasked with taking down one of the world’s most fearsome criminal organisations from the inside… the Hong Kong Triads. As players explore the bustling and crowded Hong Kong island, through its neon-lit side streets and sprawling street markets, an incredible story unfolds of loyalty and betrayal, where Wei begins to question his own motives as he is sucked in deeper than he could ever imagine.

Here is Dan’s bio:

Dan SochanDan was drawn into the industry in 1999, with a passion for combining the best of both worlds: creative and technical. He joined United Front Games in 2007, as the Producer for ModNation Racers, and has since brought his expertise to Sleeping Dogs. Prior to UFG, Dan was with Backbone Entertainment, helping to grow the studio from a mobile-only developer to console gaming, while producing Monster Lab and Shadow-Born. Dan has also worked at Blackbox/EA, on titles such as NHL 2005, NHL 2004, NHL Hitz 20-03, Sega Soccer Slam and Nascar 2000.

Here is the video (apologies about the darkness, we were hiding out)!

Sleeping Dogs will be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PCs from 14th August, 2012, in North America and from 17th August, 2012, in Europe and other PAL territories. For more information about the game, visit
