L.A. Noire has been quite a while in the making. First teased at the 2005 Electronic Entertainment Expo as a PlayStation 3 exclusive, the game was picked up by Rockstar Games a year later. After being announced for the Xbox 360 as well, the game largely disappeared from headlines until August of this year, when Rockstar parent Take-Two Interactive revealed it would miss its projected 2010 release date.
Today, Rockstar released a new trailer for the game (below), which contained a nugget of information at its end. Namely, the open-world game would launch in spring 2011, generally accepted as being the second quarter of the year.
Other than the date, the new trailer shed little light on the film noir-inspired game, which is the debut effort from Australia-based Team Bondi. The snippet did give a taste of the game's main storyline, which follows a detective entangled in a violent web of vice, corruption, and crime in 1940's Los Angeles. Players jump into the seedy underworld of the metropolis and are tasked with solving a series of murders in what Rockstar describes as an "open-ended challenge."
