Rockstar regularly runs a column called “Asked & Answered” on their newswire. You’ve likely already got the gist of it, but this is where fans come with questions and get full answers from the company itself.
The most recent column features a ton of questions centered around Max Payne 3, so if you’re interested in that title, hit the source link below. Also in the mix was one question about L.A. Noire. In particular, the future of the franchise itself. Here’s how Rockstar responded concerning news of future L.A. Noire editions:
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. 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.
Here’s the truth of it, for me: I love this news. I love the fact that Rockstar is willing to give L.A. Noire another go, if time and manpower affords them the luxury of doing so. L.A. Noire was a risk for the studio responsible for titans like Grand Theft Auto. This sleuthing title played unlike anything Rockstar’s ever made, and it stood a chance at splitting the opinions of gamers everywhere.
Despite that, they went ahead and made sure Team Bondi’s work shine. If Rockstar continues with L.A. Noire by making a brand new sequel, count me in on day one.
