Described as "an open-ended challenge to solve a series of gruesome murders" set in "the classic noir period of the late 1940's" when announced in September 2006, Noire has been shrouded in mystery since the release of a cinematic trailer that October.
L.A. Noire is the first title from developer Team Bondi since being founded by Brendan McNamara--director and writer of Team Soho's sandbox crime 'em up The Getaway.
Meanwhile, Rockstar is working on a new PlayStation 3 exclusive internally at Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar North--the cold war spy thriller Agent.
Noire missed the only release window it was ever given--between November 2008 and September 2009--but hopefully we'll find out more when Game Informer hits. Here's the 2006 cinematic teaser trailer again for if you missed it the first time around.
