    Team Bondi has confirmed that their next game will be entitled Whore Of The Orient, referring to the disrespectful name given to Shanghai by its inhabitants. Set in 1936, the project is apparently headed to next-generation consoles as well as PC.


    The official Team Bondi website carries the first new details of the project, which will be developed in conjunction with KMM film production company (Team Bondi's owners) and Warner Bros.

    Shanghai, 1936. Whore of the Orient. Paris of the East. The most corrupt and decadent city on the planet, where anything can be had or done for the right price. Plaything of Western powers who greedily exploit the Chinese masses. Boiling pot of Chinese nationalism, with the Kuomintang ruthlessly trying to suppress Communism and the labour movement. Home to the International Police Force, a group of Western cops hopelessly trying to keep the lid on and keep the peace.

    From the development team who brought you L.A. Noire and The Getaway, along with the Academy Award winning film production team of Kennedy Miller Mitchell comes a completely new and original IP being developed for next generation games consoles and PC.


    A solitary piece of artwork reveals little more than a coutyard, but it's posted above in case you fancy taking a closer look.

    According to a new report from MCV, KMM Media haven't managed to find a publisher for the mysterious Whore Of The Orient, resulting in numerous layoffs at the studio behind L.A. Noire.

    MCV's sources allege that KMM Media, who absorbed Team Bondi's developers into the fold last year, have shelved development due to the lack of funding and interest. This has reportedly lead to "significant" layoffs of development personnel.

    KMM's Doug Mitchell suggests that they're still attempting to release the project, but confirms that they haven't attracted an investor, partner or publisher yet. "Whore of the Orient is a unique and extraordinary story and game," he said, "and we are still actively pursuing the right investor to partner with."

    As we learned last year, Whore Of The Orient was set in 1930's Shanghai (hence the name), described as "the most corrupt and decadent city on the planet, where anything can be had or done for the right price." With the exception of a couple of pieces of concept art, we haven't heard word one about the next-gen project for several months.
