Whore of the Orient, the next game from the development team of L.A. Noire, is still a long way from release. A new website for the game states that it'll be available on next-generation consoles and the PC.
Orient is set in Shanghai in 1936. The city, said to be the most corrupt and decadent on the planet, is being exploited by Western powers. It's also the site of a violent struggle between Communists and the Chinese Nationalist party (Kuomintang). A team of Western police known as the International Police Force is trying desperately to keep the streets safe.
The premise sounds like it could be another investigation game like L.A. Noire. And why not, really? The reviews for Noire were strong and there's few other games like it. The development team has found a niche that they've got all to themselves.
Development is being handled by Kennedy Miller Mitchell. KMM hired many of the remnants of Team Bondi, the L.A. Noire studio that went belly-up in 2011. Team Bondi leader Brendan McNamara is overseeing the project.
The new website mentions that Warner Bros. will be publishing the game. It also features the first concept art, which you can see below.
