Man does it feel good to hear Rockstar say this.
In their Ask & Answered section on the Rockstar site, fielding questions from fans about Max Payne 3, one fan asked “Hey R* is there gonna be something more about L.A. Noire?” With Rockstar replying with something other than a “no.” The tight-lipped developer indulged fans on the matter, with a pleasant response.
“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, GTAV and other games to come), don’t count out the possibility of a new game in the L.A. Noire franchise in the future. ”
Well that’s some good news! But wait aren’t they busy with Max Payne 3? “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.” There is the sound of sea sighs, where gamers are always sad, but fret not there’s a relief here in the end of the response , ‘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.’
So what does this mean? Rockstar would love to make a sequel to L.A. Noire, but they are too busy and occupied with making Max Payne 3 and GTA:V. But hey maybe our kids will get to play it.
