L.A. Noire Director's New Project Finds A New Home
Earlier this year, L.A. Noire developer Team Bondi basically imploded after complaints of a poor working environment.
Most employees left for other gigs, including new positions at Sydney-based multimedia production firm Kennedy Miller Mitchell. KMM was co-founded by "Mad Max" director George Miller and producing partner Doug Mitchell; they've recently worked on "Happy Feet 2" and the company's game creation branch produced Happy Feet 2.
In more interesting news, in a Financial Review interview, Miller and Mitchell have revealed that they've acquired the rights to Team Bondi founder Brendan McNamara's next game: Whore of the Orient. We've heard the game will be "one of the great untold stories of the 20th century," but there are no further details at this time.
So, will this be in development at KMM Games? ...is it too big of a project for them? If it's as ambitious as L.A. Noire, you're gonna need a lot of time, a lot of talent, and a lot of resources, right? Well, we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
