UPDATE 08/08/2014: Square Enix has confirmed this week's leak of Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition.

The game launches on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 10th October 2014.

24 pieces of Sleeping Dogs DLC have been integrated into the experience, including the story-extending episode Year of the Snake and the horror-themed add-on Nightmare In North Point.

"It was an exciting opportunity for the original development team to be able revisit a game we're so passionate about," said Dan Sochan, senior producer at developer United Front Games.

"We're giving old and new fans a lot reasons to pick up the game, as we've gone beyond just increasing resolution and running at 1080p. We listened to the fans: we tuned gameplay, we added to the ambiance of Hong Kong, increased audio fidelity and pushed the visuals further than we could on the previous generation of consoles."

Screenshots are below.

ORIGINAL STORY 06/08/2014: A listing for Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition on PS4 and Xbox One has appeared on Amazon US with a projected release date of 14th October.

This is the second time a listing for a next-gen version of Sleeping Dogs has been spotted as we saw a page for it at ShopTo back in June - although that estimated a 21st November release date.

The Amazon listing appears more thorough as it even has an ad for a Limited Edition pre-order bonus that comes with a 28 page art book.

According to Amazon, it will cost a full $59.99 and will include all the game's DLC.

We've contacted publisher Square Enix to verify this information and we'll report if we hear anything substantial.
