The lights are on
We've already heard that L.A. Noire is shattering sales records in the U.K., but just in case you were concerned about its success and the potential for future sequels, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick is apparently quite pleased with the new IP.
Speaking during an earnings call yesterday, Zelnick stated that L.A. Noire had an "extraordinary" and "very successful release." Going one step further, Zelnick strongly suggested that Take-Two has plans for future games and content related to L.A. Noire:
"Suffice it to say, we do see this [L.A. Noire] as a powerful new franchise for our company."
Zelnick said that as far as Rockstar working with third-party developers like they did with Team Bondi, they will "take that on a case-by-case basis." Would you like to see Team Bondi return to develop an L.A. Noire sequel? Do you want L.A. Noire to get sequels at all?
T2 would need to greatly improve the expanse of available diversions in the LA of the 40's...most of the game felt like just driving around in an empty city
I'd love to see more games like this. The game is so different that I was worried it wouldn't be successful, and in turn mean no more games like it. I'm very excited to hear that TPTB want more. I've been playing since I picked it up at the midnight launch, and I've been taking my sweet time. Savoring every minute I spend with this game. Awesome news!
I love this game I got it for my birthday and I am loving it, I would like to see DLC to come out for it soon just so I can continue to travel around L.A. not very far in the game though :)
More L.A. Noire would be nothing but greatness. Game of the year!
Team Bondi should continue to work on the L.A. Noire franchise in a significant role. They deserve all of the spoils and fame that Rockstar receives.
I'm happy that the game did well. This can only mean better and better L.A. Noire games.
I want to see this formula used for other types of games. I like to see this style used with HP Lovecraft or maybe during Jack the Ripper.
I've yet to finish the game so I can't comment on where LA Noire would continue to go, but the tech and format is most certainly the first step in a long journey.
