Team Bondi announces their next game Whore Of The Orient will be for next-gen

LA Noire studio's next game will be on next generation console hardware

What's left of the studio behind LA Noire has revealed that their next game, Whore Of The Orient, is in development for next generation console hardware.

Team Bondi are not the first developer to come forward and declare that they are developing for the next console generation but they are the second in as many weeks to make such a revelation with Alan Wake studio Remedy revealing their intentions last week.

The official statement read, "Shanghai, 1936. Whore of the Orient. Paris of the East. The most corrupt and decadent city on the planet, where anything can be had or done for the right price. Plaything of Western powers who greedily exploit the Chinese masses. Boiling pot of Chinese nationalism, with the Kuomintang ruthlessly trying to suppress Communism and the labour movement. Home to the International Police Force, a group of Western cops hopelessly trying to keep the lid on and keep the peace. From the development team who brought you LA Noire and The Getaway, along with the Academy Award winning film production team of Kennedy Miller Mitchell comes a completely new and original IP being developed for next generation games consoles and PC."

The news does seem to add more weight to the argument that at least one of the remaining two platform holders yet to reveal their plans for the next generation will announce a new console some time in 2013. Currently the money seems to be on Microsoft blinking first but we wouldn't rule Sony out completely.

Thanks MCV.
