L.A. Noire developer facing financial ruin

Cole Phelps LA Noire

Team Bondi might have struck critical success with their seven year labor of love in LA Noire, but the developer is struggling for cash.  Team Bondi’s now infamous boss, Brendan McNamara, was spotted touring George Miller’s KMM Studio in Sydney, Australia.  Early reports suggest that Miller’s company is interested in taking in Team Bondi as the company is running out of business opportunties after reports suggested that there was a difficult working environment between Rockstar and the Austrailian developer.

Some of the team members that had accused McNamara of harsh working conditions had already made the move to KMM, and were reportedly surprised to see McNamara visiting the offices shortly after their departures.  According to sources, Miller is sympathetic to McNamara’s situation, but that he is a huge fan of the work.

    L.A Noire was great but the campaing could have been longer. Also I wish they would of gone deeper into the releationship on the detective and singer(forgot their names.)

    It’s a shame that a studio struggles so much after such a major release. This is why there are so few new IPs every year. It’s to greater risk. LA Noire is my GOTY so far.

  • LOL!

    the campaign would have been longer if it wasn’t for the 360 they said so themselves and they wanted to fill up the whole blu ray disc sucks though.

    Game would have been better if they had put the Desks the other way around maybe ending on Homicide. The last few desk just got boring after the Black Dhalia crimes. Still if it means R* get some good tech out of the deal for their GTA releases its all for a good cause.
