L.A. Noire sees Take-Two shares soar

Murder on the trading floor.

Dark detective title L.A. Noire has already made a killing for Rockstar financial overlords Take-Two Interactive.

An initial round of roaring review scores has sent Take-Two stock skyrocketing to a 32-month high.

Shares rose 7.75 per cent to $17.10, the highest since EA flirted with acquiring Take-Two in September 2008, Gamasutra reports.

Analysts have predicted sales in excess of four million.

Plenty of possible DLC has been spotted, along with a paid-for Rockstar Pass to keep the coffers filling after the game launches.

L.A. Noire is currently sitting on a superb Metacritic average of 91.

Oli Welsh combed the game for an 8/10 in Eurogamer's L.A. Noire review, calling its virtual Los Angeles, 1947 setting "bizarre, threatening and fascinating."
