The developer behind Rockstar’s LA Noire VR Case Files has claimed it’s working on a “AAA open world” VR title for Rockstar Games.
The claim was made in a post published on Video Game Deluxe’s LinkedIn page this weekend, in which it added: “2020 marks our 7th year of working exclusively for Rockstar in Sydney and we are excited to [take] on this ground breaking project.”
Sydney, Australia-based Video Game Deluxe’s 10-person team includes Brendan McNamara, the director who led the original LA Noire game at Team Bondi, the developer which closed in 2011.
The game’s VR spin-off was released for PC in 2017 and follows the same plot as the original, but with a different case list and significantly shorter runtime. In 2019, LA Noire: The VR Case Files was released for PlayStation VR.
In further indication that Rockstar hadn’t forgotten the detective title, a Nintendo Switch port of LA Noire was also released in 2017.
Grand Theft Auto 6 is Rockstar’s next game but remains early in development, according to a recent report into working practices at the company.
Although the company declined to confirm if the 93 upcoming titles include a new Grand Theft Auto game, it said the release schedule included games from all of the company’s publishing labels, including Rockstar.
