LA Noire developer Team Bondi is working on a brand new IP.
Titled Whore of the Orient, the game is being developed for next-gen games consoles and PC, with Warner Bros. Interactive attached as publisher.
An official page for the title popped up this morning on Team Bondi’s website, but has since been removed.
Controversial Team Bondi boss Brendan McNamara is overseeing the project.
From the (now missing) official page:
“Shanghai, 1936. Whore of the Orient. Paris of the East. The most corrupt and decadent city on the planet, where anything can be had or done for the right price. Plaything of Western powers who greedily exploit the Chinese masses. Boiling pot of Chinese nationalism, with the Kuomintang ruthlessly trying to suppress Communism and the labour movement. Home to the International Police Force, a group of Western cops hopelessly trying to keep the lid on and keep the peace.”
