L.A. Noire No Longer PS3 Exclusive, “Another year or so to go” Before Release

Over at the GC Asia 2008, Tom Crago, the CEO of Tantalus and the president of the Game Developers’ Association of Australia spoke a bit on L.A. Noire, which has been silent for quite some time. He says the game, “it’s got – I’d suggest – another year or so to go”. So we won’t be seeing it till at least late 2009.

He also mentioned that the game is not a PLAYSTATION 3 exclusive. It is coming to both the PLAYSTATION 3 and Xbox 360. Good news for 360 owners.

Crago also spoke of the game’s importance to the Australian development industry, saying that: “It’s one that we hold huge hopes for. It has been said about Australia that we’ve not been that successful putting out a title that really has set the world on fire; a big budget title that’s sold multiple million copies and that has really put us on the map as a hub for videogame development. There are plenty of people who are hoping that L.A. Noire will be that title.”
