L.A. Noire Delayed To 2011
The complete lack of news about L.A. Noire may have made you suspicious of its planned Fall 2010 release. Well, you were right to be skeptical.
Buried in Take-Two Interactive's third quarter fiscal 2010 results is news of a delay to the 1940's open-world mystery game. Noire is now slated for release in the first half of the 2011 calendar year. That's a pretty big timeframe so it doesn't inspire much confidence.
Take-Two released Mafia II, another open-world game set in the 40's, just a week ago. It seemed unlikely they'd release two games back-to-back that are so similar (at least superficially). Such a large delay, though, suggests it's not solely due to marketing concerns.
