Hopefully, things are back on track now.
According to Game Informer , production company KMM Interactive has received $200,000 in new funding from the Australian government. The money was necessary to help finance Team Bondi's ambitious new next-gen game, Whore of the Orient .
The premise sounds great: We explore 1936 Shanghai, "the most corrupt and decadent city on the planet." It's also a "boiling pot of Chinese nationalism," with Kuomintang forces trying to halt the spread of communism. This seems like the perfect idea for the L.A. Noire developer; right up their alley, wouldn't you say? Don't forget that after the unfortunate saga surrounding Team Bondi (poor work environment, numerous complaints, etc.), KMM Interactive bought the assets and IP rights to the developer's work. That includes Whore of the Orient , of course.
The title is tentatively slated for 2015 but at least now we know development will proceed.
