In what must have been the most high-profile studio closure in history, L.A. Noire developer Team Bondi is actually no more, therefore it’s the newly owned studio under the name of KMM Interactive Productions.
While Whore of the Orient had already been announced, it was never known of its setting and platform – now though we know thanks an an update at Teambondi.com, here’s the text:
“Shanghai, 1936. Whore of the Orient. Paris of the East. The most corrupt and decadent city on the planet, where anything can be had or done for the right price. Plaything of Western powers who greedily exploit the Chinese masses. Boiling pot of Chinese nationalism, with the Kuomintang ruthlessly trying to suppress Communism and the labour movement. Home to the International Police Force, a group of Western cops hopelessly trying to keep the lid on and keep the peace.
“From the development team who brought you LA Noire and The Getaway, along with the Academy Award winning film production team of Kennedy Miller Mitchell comes a completely new and original IP being developed for next generation games consoles and PC.”
This means that their next game will be released on PS4 and Xbox 720, making it one of the first games we know is specifically going to be developed for the next-generation.
