Rockstar Games considers the future of L.A. Noire

While the team’s busily wrapped up with other projects, Rockstar Games still has some good news and some bad news for fans of L.A. Noire.

We’ll get the bad news out of the way first: There will not be any more DLC or additional content for the “current release” of the game. Following Team Bondi closing its doors late last year, this news isn’t really surprising. The remaining Rockstar developers have also got their hands pretty full, working on Max Payne 3, Grand Theft Auto V and some mysterious “other games”.

That said, we promised some good news as well:

Don’t count out the possibility of a new game in the L.A. Noire franchise in the future.

According to a recent Q&A with the developers, Rockstar admits that it “simply has not decided anything” on the topic at this stage, refusing to rule out the concept of a sequel, spin-off or other related project.

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.

The Asked & Answered session focussed primarily on Max Payne‘s glorious imminent return, but also covers a certain amount of unrest among fans, who are growing increasingly frustrated with the company’s continuing delays.
