It’s not surprising that the sequel to a game with such a rocky development process is given careful consideration. On the one hand, L.A. Noire established a franchise fit to share the pantheon of GTA and Red Dead Redemption. However, even with the game’s success, its earnings will probably not match its hefty development cost. Fortunately, sequels are nothing if not profitable, as the technology and production pipeline are already in place.
“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,” according to a Rockstar representative. 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.” Well, it certainly won’t hold the game’s original developer. Team Bondi closed its doors shortly after shipping L.A. Noire.
