Whore of the Orient job ads show 2015 completion date

Wednesday, 14th November 2012 23:11 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Whore of the Orient, the new game from the team behind L.A. Noire, is apparently expected in 2015.

As noted in Superannuation’s regular Kotaku column, Kennedy Miller Mitchell Interactive is recruiting, and one ad for a senior engine programmer makes mention of an expected 2015 completion date.

Another, for a lead animator, gives a few clues as to the game’s form – it’s a “narrative action adventure title” in the vein of L.A. Noire, using the same facial MotionScan technology.

The project was outed in November 2011. Developer KMMI retains some of the same staff who worked on L.A. Noire, and although Team Bondi was officially absorbed into the company, its website reportedly hosted information on Whore of the Orient since August, including a first screenshot.

We’re still awaiting a full, official reveal, but the adventure is expected on next-generation hardware, and Warner Bros. is said to be publishing.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    Truth be told LA Noire was a fine game, the story, character development, the world were pure gold, so Whore of the Orient is definitely on my radar.

    “‘narrative action adventure title’ in the vein of L.A. Noire, using the same facial MotionScan technology.”

    Sold.

    @1 Absolutely. L.A. Noire was a really good experience. Pure art. The controls were a little too clunky sometimes (especially when in shooting mode) and it was a pain not to be able to have a uniform system besides some other little things here and there… but it was a deep, mature, really outstanding product that didn’t underestimate its audience.

    “Whore of the Orient” says it’s gonna follow the line from the very title. If the team learned the important lessons L.A. Noire left to be known, then I can’t wait for this.

    Loved LA Noire, even if had some hiccups as far as gameplay was concerned. Eagerly look for ward to seeing more on Whore of the Orient.
