L.A. Noire developer Team Bondi shut down

Sydney-based developer in process of closure.

Team Bondi, the team behind L.A. Noire, is in the process of shut down. The Australian Securities and Investments Commission filed documents today finalizing the decision.

L.A. Noire, published by Rockstar, received critical acclaim upon release, but the developer was accused of mismanagement behind-the-scenes, poor working conditions, and not providing proper acknowledgement in L.A. Noire‘s end credits.

Thanks, Gamasutra.
