Is L.A. Noire Sequel Only An Issue Of "Bandwidth And Timing?"

L.A. Noire sold millions of copies and was a hit with critics and gamers alike. It's too bad what happened to developer Team Bondi, but we say their project shouldn't be forgotten; it was a multiple award-winner for us in 2011.

The Motion Scan technology was amazing and with Team Bondi gone, we were hoping to see the tech pass to another Rockstar team for use in a new project. But could that project actually be a sequel to L.A. Noire...? In addition to saying Grand Theft Auto V info was still a few months away, the recent developer Q&A hinted at the possibility of L.A. Noire 2.

"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."

For those of you who played and completed L.A. Noire, you know the major hurdle a developer might face in creating a sequel. No spoilers here but let's just say the story didn't exactly allow for a follow-up effort; at least, not with all the major characters intact. So what do you say? Want another L.A. Noire? We'll definitely take it, even if it's a prequel or something.

Well Rockstar doesn't really do sequel sequels, so it would likely be something like N.Y. Noire or Chicago Noire, new city, new cast, etc.

I'm looking forward to whatever it might be, probably years from now. In the mean time since Agent appears to be vaporware how about that Bully 2?

PLEASE make another LA Noire, I haven't finished the first one yet because my PS3 YLOD'd while playing it, but I'm gonna get a new, slim one soon and then I'll finish this masterpiece.

Just remember, R*, I like my PS3's working while I play games, please don't make another overheating game!

they already own the IP and the motion scan tech so yea a sequel, or something based of it is only a matter of time.
i just hope this time they go balls out, and every single case you have to look at the evidence, and choose who is guilty and who is not.
then if you get it wrong, you go down a side road and have to build your way back up to the main story.
you know, a proper detective game not every case being sorted out for you.

I LOVED LA Noire...but personally, I would love to see a Red Dead Redemption hit the shelves first! Just glad they don't buy into the yearly release pressure and instead focus on producing top quality games.

A sequel for me wouldnt have to follow the same characters> Just set it maybe in the late 50's or so with different players and give greater control to us on how to actually conduct investigations.
