LA Noire Announced for PS4, X1, Switch and VR

Recommended Posts

BLOOD

 

 

 

I like to think Rockstar is trying to kill two birds with one stone here, if L.A Noire sell well then the chances for a sequel and remasters of other Rockstar games will get the go ahead

Yeah, I'm hoping for a GTA IV remaster with better performance and GFWL removed.

GTA IV remaster? They cannot have that cannibalise V and Online. It already had it own Prime.

 

holding new games back in some way because they could "damage" GTA:O would have the opposite effect, it would damage their games and thus their sales/reputation.

How is GTA IV new games?

It doesn't matter what it is, it doesn't change the fact that not doing things because it could damage GTA:O is backward thinking.

GTA IV remastered when GTA V is on top of every sales chart? If V had not sold 80 million and was doing badly then i get that (similar to Call of Duty MW remastered to support sale of Infinite Warfare) but that not the case here so it just a crazy idea. Any Non-GTA titles remastered will make sense.

Well it's a good thing that any money a IV remaster would make goes into Rockstar/Take-Two's pockets isn't it? Besides, generations are long and there's no doubt a ton of people whose first GTA was V and would buy an IV remaster, plus those who would go back to replay it again. The idea makes perfect sense.

True that but i think a collection of all 15 GTA titles will be cash-cow. With the 2D titles completely remake/remastered.

Is there any reason R* haven't already given us a trailer, or comparison screenshots for this yet?

'Virtuos has worked on all your favourite games including Final Fantasy X & XII, Uncharted 4, Horizon, Injustice 2, Watch Dogs 2, Halo 5 etc.'

 

How is that to be understood?! Isn't Uncharted 4 from Naughty Dog, Horizon from Guerilla Games, ...

Developers will often hire small studios to assist, or to do things like ports. Not unusual.

It's (probably) the outsouced Switch version (without the graphical updates), not the other in-house versions.

You would be interested in knowing R* outsources a whole lot. Every AAA dev does.

https://sperasoft.com/news/sperasoft-works-together-with-rockstar-to-bring-grand-theft-auto-v-live/

https://www.tttc.ca/team/terence-wong/

Even their Technicolour unit is outsourced, before they did their own R* India: http://www.technicolor.com/sites/default/files/medialib/document/wysiwyg/Animation/technicolor-rockstar_clips_final.pdf

 

There's plenty more. It's not uncommon. Even in-house projects have outsourced assets and work.

L.A. Noire is not being ported by R*.

never liked virtous ports. Ezio collection has f*cked up color filters, like they swapped them between games and Return to arkham has some weird models for chars (not to mention it has uncapped framerate which fluctuates between 20 to 60FPS)

R* India is a studio (their 8th or 9th) though..legally Rockstar Interactive India LLP.

 

EDIT: R* have 8 development studios vs Ubisoft with 34 development studios and it seems like the latter does alot of outsourcing.

L.A. Noire is not being ported by R*.

Are you sure that's the message to get from the Tweet, that Rockstar is not porting L.A. Noire? Or am I missing something here?

 

Given that Virtuos seems to have been outsourced to assist on many games like Uncharted 4, Halo 5, Watch Dogs 2 etc, it seems that this might very well be the case for L.A. Noire as well? Rockstar Studios might be the leading developers behind L.A. Noire's port, with this company Virtuos being outsourced for various works that also need to be done.

L.A. Noire is on their company portfolio on LinkedIn since announcement. They're the ones porting it to Switch because R* doesn't really have expertise with Switch or the ARM (same as smartphones) platform, as even the mobile GTA's were ported by someone else.

I am currently watching Logan will be cool to see Rockstar Toronto making a Wolverine Game.

 

Toronto are making Bully 2.

 

Rockstar Games New York are making NY Noire.

 

Unrelated to quoted post, but to contribute to this thread - I have a suspicion that Rockstar are working on the next game of the series. They're remastering LA Noire to "shake the tree and see what falls out", to see if there's still any interest in the series, or create more interest so that when people see a new Noire game they think "Wow, I liked the previous one I played a few months ago. I'm really looking forward to this!"

 

Rockstar don't seem (to me) like the type of guys who would do something like this without a good reason. LA Noire wasn't exactly their best seller. It's more of a cult classic. So yeah, I think they're doing this to test the waters and see if it will be worth while finishing the next Noire game. I assume Rockstar acquired the facial tech from Team Bondi when they closed, and the fact that Rockstar are doing this remaster suggests that they own all the rights to the Noire franchise. I wouldn't be surprised if we see something revealed in about two years from now.

 

But either way, LA Noire is a masterpiece, I still play it to this day (I last played through the story a few months ago). So I'm hugely excited for this remaster. Improved graphics, textures, and sky (from the GTA V engine updates, I assume), 4K, new stuff. I normally don't go for remasters if I already have the game. But this one, this one I will get!

Cool. It also great to know that Rockstar New York (Rockstar Games New York or Rockstar NYC) is just to Rockstar Games the way Ubisoft Paris is to Ubisoft. In that it a development studio inside an HQ.

 

Spider-Vice: If the three labels synergy start taking shape then sister label/company Social Point will be developing and publishing GTA titles on mobile devices and also putting mobile versions of NBA and WWE out as well even though they will be making their own titles like sequels to Dragon City, Monster Legends or newer titles the first under Take-Two Interactive ownership being League of Dragons.

Isn't the one in New York their main headquarters for "Rockstar Games"? That's the one which is Rockstar Games, and the others are like Rockstar San Diego, Rockstar North, etc.

I'm pretty sure Rockstar North did most of the GTA stuff and San Diego do Red Dead?

 

Anyway, my theory is that if the next Noire game is in New York, then it'll make sense to have a team in their New York studio to be the main people developing it.

New York doesn't have a very extensive development team though. They have a few programmers, but they do mostly mocap, animation and QA there. All the other studios are the ones who focus in the "meat" of the games. Nowadays all studios work on a game, divided by teams within each studio, with obviously one studio being the lead. LA Noire, other than Team Bondi, was led by North and Leeds I think. Leeds especially for the PC version as they ported it. If North is doing GTA VI and whatever else though, then they might transfer the leadership elsewhere I guess.
