LA Noire dev staff owed nearly 900k

Even the poor intern.

Developers who worked on L.A. Noire are owed nearly 900,000, legal documents have revealed.

40 Team Bondi staff behind the game are owed AUD $1.4 million (886,000) Eurogamer sister site GamesIndustry.biz reports.

The Australian developer, which went into liquidation last month, owes money to programmers, designers, production and gameplay staff - and even an intern.

Staff are owed between $1600 and $99,000. Boss Brendan McNamara is owed more than $102,000.

With the embattled company currently in liquidation, it is unlikely its creditors will see a return on their investments.

Team Bondi's reputation was irrevocably harmed amid allegations of unfair working practices, despite the critical success of L.A. Noire.

Team Bondi's assets and most of the staff - including leader Brendan McNamara - reportedly went to KMM, a production company set-up by Mad Max maker George Miller. Rockstar retained the L.A. Noire IP, and is making a PC version for launch later this year.
