Rockstar: L.A. Noire Is Still Alive

It's just one of those things: when a game disappears off the radar for an extended period of time, everyone gets worried.

Those who really like the idea of L.A. Noire have been discouraged lately, as there has been no fresh news concerning Rockstar's anticipated project. We kept hearing whispers that it was still in development, but the last update included a delay to fiscal 2009. This wasn't good news and since then, some have postulated that L.A. Noire had been put on indefinite hold. However, according to Rockstar, they confirmed that development on this game was continuing forward, which means it will most certainly arrive at some point. They made this statement after talking about games like Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the PSP and Red Dead Redemption at GamesCom last week, so we'll just cling to that for now. Remember, L.A. Noire started out as a PS3 exclusive way back in 2006 but it soon changed to a multiplatform project, which may be the reason for the lengthy delay.

We're hoping for another update before the year is out, and if Rockstar is good enough to give us some media or something, we'll be sure to show it off.  We're positive you'll want it.

Unless this thing somehow collapses in a fiery mess of crap this is still a day one buy for me. Love everything about it, can't wait to break out the old fedora and take it for a spin. Good to hear its on track.

I'll give this game a chance. I havent REALLY enjoyed a GTA game since Vice City, so this is R*'s last chance to win me back. It looks like a good premise, i just hope they dont fill it full of stupid tedious missions like GTA4.

Are you kidding...San Andreas was the best of the PS2 generation of GTA games...It's GTAIV when the massive overhaul started to lose some longtime fans...I personally still loved it though...

classic film noirs are some great movies. And a game world based on them just seems like a no-brainer. The same way the PS2 GTAs openly and lovingly referenced the appropriate genre flicks, LA Noire could be full of nods to tons of classics. And Rockstar developing? Sign me up.

we all knew it was still in development because a ex employee at gameplayer is now working on LA Noire, all we dident know is what systems it will be on, and when the bloomin thing will come out.
game delays god how can we stop them?
a few months thats fine but when it starts slipping years thats when it gets really annoying.

Another open world game by Rockstar? I hope it's a lot better than GTAIV (disappointing compared to San Andreas).
