L.A. Noire Developer Team Bondi Is Bankrupt – Rumor

by Ernice Gilbert on August 5th, 2011, under Hot, industry news, News

NeoGAF’s rumoring that Team Bondi, the developer responsible for one of this year’s bestselling games, L.A. Noire, is bankrupt, and is currently seeking help from KMM, a studio in Australia that will eventually acquire the dev.

Apparently “no one” can work with Team Bondi studio head Brendan McNamara, who was reportedly seen walking around KKM yesterday.

According to GAF, Depth Analysis, the company behind the Facial Recognition tech which was used to power L.A. Noire’s motion scanning, is also in bad financial shape after making “little to no money” on the popular game.

We’ll keep you posted as this develops.

    not going bankrupt, its because of the whole scandal no one wants to work with them so there trying to get soaked into KKM.
    ironic thing is thats actually where over half of the studios team works now.
    leaving a company to get away from a pompous prick to only have him move too and become your new boss.
    now if thats not torture i dont know what is!

    Something needs to be done. Fire this guy, he’s not good for the industry, if all what’s read is to be believed.
