Rockstar's LA Noire Gets "Long-Awaited Reveal" Next Month

Team Bondi's long in the making LA Noire, the murder mystery set in "a perfectly re-created Los Angeles" of the late 1940s, will have its "long-awaited reveal" in print next month, Rockstar Games says.

In addition to an official response to the "Determined Devoted Wives of Rockstar San Diego employees", Rockstar Games' Asked & Answered column also teases a new look at LA Noire.

"There will be something great to see soon - a proper in-depth look at the game and why it is so ground breaking and innovative, both in terms of the game's design and the amazing new technology to support it," Rockstar writes. "Expect to see a long-awaited reveal via a big cover story next month."

Safe money on the possible print publication is Game Informer, Rockstar's go-to game mag for cover stories (see Grand Theft Auto IV, Max Payne 3).

Next month's story would be the first time we've heard, well, just about anything since LA Noire's original announcement and its official delay, other than that the game is coming along "splendidly."

With Take-Two Interactive still not listing LA Noire on its fiscal year release list, recently moving an unnamed "triple-A title out of the fiscal year" we don't expect to see the game actually shipping any time soon. But, hey, it's been almost five years already. We're patient.

Asked & Answered - Re: Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire, Rockstar San Diego and More [Rockstar Games]


    It amazes me that a company with (allegedly) such low employee satisfaction levels can keep projects such as LA Noire and Red Dead Redemption under such a blanket of secrecy without any leaks.

    Sure, they'd be under NDAs and all that, but you'd think just a *little* would leak out...

    Yesss! This game looks sweet. Go Team Bondi!

    Should be interesting to see how this has come together given Team Bondi's shoddy reputation with the development community and constant turnover of staff and the protracted development period. I can't imagine it will have done wonders for a cohesive gameplay experience.

    Shall certainly be interested in this one, love the film noir style and I've not seen a good game in the noir style since the mighty Grim Fandango

    Wow almost 5 years?!

    No doubt it will be less than a month before we see it. Everything seems to leak these days, even if its a day or hours before its meant to be.

    Gonna be good. Rockstar are good at capturing particular moments. GTA is evident of that. Vice City anyone?

    Wasn't this originally supposed to be a PS3 launch title?
