Team Bondi creative staff are among a slew of other creditors owed big amounts of money following the destruction of the L.A. Noire studio. Over forty people are owed more than $1.4 million (Australian) in collective debt.
Developers in production, gameplay, design and programming -- as well as one intern -- are owed amounts ranging from $1,600 to $99,000. Even the vilified former boss of Bondi, Brendan McNamara, is due $102,000. Oh, and since the company's getting liquidated, there's a good chance nobody will get even a decent fraction of what they're owed.
We hear of studios closing after a failed game, but this goes to show that even a studio with a major worldwide hit can fall apart if handled badly. So, let that be a lesson to you!
