L.A. Noire developer's follow-up is slated for next-gen

0

Whore of the Orient, Team Bondi's anticipated follow-up to L.A. Noire, will be published on next-gen consoles and PC by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

Set in 1930's Shangai, during a time of political unrest, Whore of the Orient will mine a similar gritty, noir style but in a far different location and context. Last year, Team Bondi head Brendan McNamara said the game will based on "one of the greatest untold stories of the twentieth century."

Here's a description from the updated site:

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.

Given McNamara's track record, it's safe to assume this will be an open-world game of some nature. Whether it will mimic L.A. Noire's structure and approach is something we don't know yet, though I imagine there are many who wouldn't mind that being the case.
