Whore of the Orient was the working title for L.A.  Noire’s spiritual successor. Former KMM producer Derek Proud when asked whether a follow up to L.A. Noire would be released responded with, “I don’t think so.”

Proud in his interview on Gamehugs detailed a lot of his experience during the acquisition of Team Bondi (Developers of L.A. Noire) by KMM games.

Proud had only good things to say of his former team, many of whom had been picked up in the takeover, “They are incredibly talented developers, and while we lost a couple of them in that transition, I have amazing amounts of respect for everybody that put out L.A. Noire.”

When commenting on Whore of the Orient’s narrative direction he mentioned that they were looking to explore Shanghai in the early twentieth century.

“Shanghai was the only place in the world you could go to in the 1930s and 1940s if you didn’t have a passport. So everybody who was running from something went to Shanghai.”

Despite the fact that Proud chose to steer away from the word “cancelled” it seems unlikely Whore of the Orient will see the light of day. The team working on the game was closed in 2013.

L.A. Noire was a unique title that despite failing to reach commercial success, scratched a unique itch with its innovative and consequential gameplay.
