Shock: creators of LA Noire not making a new game

Jul 07, 2024 3:50 PM

Despite recent buzz, there will not be a new game from the creators of LA Noire. An Instagram post from Australian composer Freyja Garbett led fans to believe a new psychological thriller named "Sowden House" set in 1940s LA was in the works. However, Video Games Deluxe clarified that the post was a misunderstanding. The composer was commissioned for music on a VR project, stemming from an unused LA Noire case, but no new game is planned. The studio continues to work on projects for Rockstar, but specifics remain unknown.

Are the creators of LA Noire working on a new game?n

No, the creators of LA Noire are not developing a new game. The recent rumors stemmed from a misunderstanding related to a composer’s social media post.

LA Noire, initially developed by Team Bondi and published by Rockstar Games, received acclaim for its narrative and unique interrogation gameplay. The game is set in late 1940s Los Angeles and follows Detective Cole Phelps as he solves various cases, blending action, investigation, and noir storytelling. Its VR adaptation, LA Noire: The VR Case Files, offered a more immersive take on select missions from the original game.

Bummer to hear there's no new LA Noire game on the horizon, but it's cool that they're still playing with VR projects. Can't wait to see what Rockstar cooks up next

It’s a bummer there's no new game from the minds behind LA Noire, but at least we know they’re still crafting cool stuff for Rockstar. Fingers crossed their VR project introduces some of that same vintage intrigue.
