Rockstar has done a deal with Getaway creator Brendan McNamara's Team Bondi to publish next-generation crime thriller L.A. Noire.

Neither company's talking about specific formats just yet, but the game had previously been in development for PlayStation 3.

Originally announced in January 2004, the game's been quietly taking the shape of an interactive detective story set in the noir period of the late '40s.

It promises a blend of action, detection and complex storytelling as part of an open-ended challenge to solve a series of gruesome murders in Los Angeles.

We've got a very short teaser up on EGTV today, and Rockstar's planning to have a trailer up on its official website on 5th October.

"Brendan and I have known each other for a long time, and to finally have the opportunity to work together on a game is exciting," said Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar Games.

"The longstanding mutual respect and the combined experience between the two of us make this a great partnership," added Brendan McNamara, CEO of Team Bondi.

And while McNamara wasn't all that forthcoming when we spoke to him about Team Bondi in 2004, you can check out the interview anyway for a few snippets.
