News on the GTA front is rather scarce at the moment, so it seems a good time for Rockstar to announce another new game of theirs, L.A. Noire, a crime thriller set in 1940's Los Angeles. While it's not GTA, the game has a vaguely similar premise.

We've just launched a mini site stemming from The GTA Place, and should the game live up to its full potential, we'll be developing it into a fully fledged fan site, for now though, it's just a splash page, but be sure to bookmark it for further news updates on the game...

To view the teaser, head over to LANoire.net, where you can also download higher quality versions of it.

Rockstar Games is pleased to announce a partnership with Team Bondi Pty Ltd to publish the ground-breaking next generation crime thriller L.A. Noire. Developed by Team Bondi, a new Australian based studio founded by Brendan McNamara, of The Getaway, L.A Noire is an interactive detective story set in the classic noir period of the late 1940's. L.A. Noire blends action, detection and complex storytelling and draws players into an open-ended challenge to solve a series of gruesome murders. Set in a perfectly recreated Los Angeles before freeways, with a post-war backdrop of corruption, drugs and jazz, L.A. Noire will truly blend cinema and gaming.

Sam Houser of Rockstar Games serves as Executive Producer and Brendan McNamara as Director of Development for L.A. Noire.

"Brendan and I have known each other for a long time, and to finally have the opportunity to work together on a game is exciting," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "The longstanding mutual respect and the combined experience between the two of us make this a great partnership," added Brendan McNamara, CEO of Team Bondi.

L.A. Noire is a next-generation title and will be published by Rockstar Games. The official trailer will be released October 5th at www.rockstargames.com/lanoire.
