THE BUZZ: As part of a Q&A that Rockstar posted on their official site, it sounds as if more L.A. Noire isn’t out of the question.
EGM’s TAKE: Now, obviously, the original creators of L.A. Noire—Team Bondi—are long gone at this point. That doesn’t mean, however, that Rockstar couldn’t craft a new project internally. Think about Red Dead Redemption—it was a Rockstar-developed sequel to Red Dead Revolver, which itself actually began life as a Capcom-developed project.
Here’s what the Q&A had to say about more potential L.A. Noire goodness:
While there won’t be any more DLC or additional content for the current release of L.A. Noire (we’re all too busy working on Max Payne 3, GTAV and other games to come), don’t count out the possibility of a new game in the L.A. Noire franchise in the future. We simply have not decided anything. We’re all very pleased with how that game turned out and are considering what the future may hold for L.A. Noire as a series. We don’t always rush to make sequels, but that does not mean we won’t get to them eventually – see Max and Red Dead for evidence of that – we have so many games we want to make and the issue is always one of bandwidth and timing.
So—more L.A. Noire? Would you like to see that? And if so, would you want Rockstar to make major changes to how the overall game played?
