L.A Noire spiritual successor and long in-development game by Team Bondi, Whore Of The Orient, seems to be cancelled according to producer Derek Proud.

Speaking with Gamehugs, Derek Proud was asked that if he thinks the Whore Of The Orient will ever release. His answer is somewhat disappointing for the fans who were looking forward to it.

I don’t think so, That was one of the games and one of the studios I kind of left right at the bitter end. When we got wrapped up.

Whore Of The Orient was in development for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but it seems that the game will never see the light of day.

Derek Proud also said the he and other developers, including studio head Brendan McNamara, “fought to keep the project alive “.

It was something we were all passionate about. But in the end, that was the way it went.

Whore Of The Orient was going to be set in 1936 Shanghai, and the game was also called an attempt to disgrace the Chinese culture by a a councilor for the Australian city of Monash, Jieh-Yung Lo.

The councilor called the game as an “attempt to disgrace Chinese culture, history and traditions”. He also revealed his plans to take Australian production company Kennedy Miller Mitchell to the Human Rights Commission on the basis of a defamatory attack.

Last game developed by Team Bondi was L.A Noire, which was a critically acclaimed game, but the developer was surrounded by controversies shortly after its release.  According to various reports developers were working over time and for minimum wage, with some not even ending in the credits list. Publisher Rockstar soon ended its relations with Team Bondi.
