The lights are on
Rockstar Games hasn't decided whether or not we'll see another game in the L.A. Noire universe.
As part of a recently published Q&A on its website, Rockstar confirmed there will no longer be any downloadable content for the game and that a new game in these series is a giant question mark.
"While there won’t be any more DLC or additional content for the current release of L.A. Noire (we’re all too busy working on Max Payne 3, GTA V and other games to come), don’t count out the possibility of a new game in the L.A. Noire franchise in the future," the company said. "We simply have not decided anything.
"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."
Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick described the game as "a powerful new franchise" in an earnings call last May. To date, L.A. Noire has shipped nearly five million copies worldwide.
