According to a post over on NeoGAF, Team Bondi are bankrupt, and studio head Brendan McNamara along with current staff members will be folded into KMM. This new rumor comes on the heals of yesterday’s report that Mcnamara was spotted walking about the KMM studios, and that a deal was in the works for it to purchase the embattled Australian development house. The GAF post also states that Depth Analysis, the company which owns the facial tech used in L.A. Noire, are also in a spot of financial trouble, after making “little to no money,” off the game. We’ll have Brenna send a mail since she is Down Under.
