With a post-war backdrop of corruption, drugs and jazz, Rockstar has claimed it will "truly blend cinema and gaming".
Rockstar’s much-anticipated L.A Noire definitely won’t see the light of day until January 2011 at the earliest.
Parent Take Two said in its Q3 investor earnings call last night that the title would be out in the first half of calendar year 2011. That’s any time between January 1 and June 31.
Take Two CEO Ben Feder said: “If a title needs more time, it needs more time – and we’re willing to give it. I will say about L.A. Noire that as I look around competitively at the marketplace, there is nothing else quite like it in terms of the gameplay and the technology behind it. We want to make sure we get it absolutely right.”
