Every time we see the title "L.A. Noire" in the news, we always tense up in anticipation of bad news. After all, this is a project that seems to have struggled through a lengthy development process, and there was even talk of a cancellation at some point.

But as Joystiq pointed out, the latest update should be considered encouraging. Team Bondi (also responsible for The Getaway ) is looking for plenty of talented individuals to join the team, perhaps in an attempt to push through the final stages. They're looking for everything from animators to artists to coders to designers, so if you think you've got the skills, perhaps you'd like to apply. If not, and you're merely looking for good news concerning L.A. Noire , then you should be somewhat satisfied. Although we'd like to assume that development has reached a critical stage, we still have no official update on the team's progress. Our last update said the game would be about a year away, and that was last fall; September, to be exact. Therefore, E3 may be the time when Rockstar announces a concrete release date for this long-awaited crime thriller, and if that happens, it'll be big news indeed. Wouldn't we just love to give you an updated preview, complete with a not-so-far-off date? Wouldn't that just make your day?

Anyway, we'll let you know if there's any movement on the L.A. Noire front; at this point, it'd be optimistic and realistic to think that when a team is searching for employees, they're planning to work .

Awesome, been interested in this for awhile. I'm no coder but I could be an expert at the story. Even if this game sucks I think I'll get it, it and it's era just appeals to me.

I've seen L.A. Noire pop up now and then, but it just never really caught my eye life Infamous and Uncharted 2 and God of War III and MAG and all of that stuff. I wonder why?

Yeah I checked it out it will probably go to 360 too.I could already imagine MS at Rockstars front door in their knees with a suitcase full of money.

To be honest I don't think this is good news at all. It sounds like they need more people in order to create the 360 version… and I think I heard the same news WorldEndsWithMe heard.
