‘Whore of the Orient’, from creators of L.A. Noire, cancelled

Whore-of-the-Orient

Whore of the Orient was set to be the next project from a group of the developers behind Rockstar‘s L.A. Noire. Those folks were from Team Bondi, a studio caught up in a bunch of accusations of unethical behavior while working on and releasing L.A. Noire.

Whore of the Orient had been in earnest development since 2012, and it was slated to release in 2015. After 2013, the studio went quiet on the game. Now we know that it’s been officially cancelled.

Australian developer Derek Proud appeared on the Gamehugs podcast, and he spoke specifically about the fate of Whore of the Orient. He was to be credited as a producer on that game. In the episode, Proud details the work on the game and the things it would entail. He explained that Team Bondi worked to keep development rolling, but they failed.

Whore of the Orient is no more.

I really dug what Team Bondi did with L.A. Noire. The game certainly wasn’t perfect, but it featured truly compelling mechanics. Whore of the Orient could have been a neat follow up.

If more news springs up concerning its cancellation, we’ll be on it.
