We don't know much about Rock Star Games' in-development open-world crime title L.A. Noire. Here's the extent of our knowledge: It's set in the world of 40s noire films. It takes place in Los Angeles. And now we know it will be among the most expensive games ever made:
Tom Crago, the CEO of Tantalus and the president of the Game Developers' Association of Australia said LA Noire "could be the biggest budget videogame in development anywhere in the world. It would certainly… in terms of console titles, be in the top ten… LA Noire is a massive, massive project."
It will be out, hopefully, in 2009, probably for the PS3 and 360. (Short update: It was originally thought to be a PS3 exclusive, but Crago says it will be out on both the 360 and the PS3.)
