It's just one of those things: when a game disappears off the radar for an extended period of time, everyone gets worried.
Those who really like the idea of L.A. Noire have been discouraged lately, as there has been no fresh news concerning Rockstar's anticipated project. We kept hearing whispers that it was still in development, but the last update included a delay to fiscal 2009. This wasn't good news and since then, some have postulated that L.A. Noire had been put on indefinite hold. However, according to Rockstar, they confirmed that development on this game was continuing forward , which means it will most certainly arrive at some point. They made this statement after talking about games like Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the PSP and Red Dead Redemption at GamesCom last week, so we'll just cling to that for now. Remember, L.A. Noire started out as a PS3 exclusive way back in 2006 but it soon changed to a multiplatform project, which may be the reason for the lengthy delay.
We're hoping for another update before the year is out, and if Rockstar is good enough to give us some media or something, we'll be sure to show it off. We're positive you'll want it.
