Team Bondi Closing

Team Bondi is officially closing, reports Edge Magazine, where they point to the legal documents filed with the Australian Securities & Investments Commission, including a "Notice Under S.446a of Special Resolution to Wind Up Company." This seemed to be a foregone conclusion, as the troubled developer of L.A. Noire has already sold off assets, entered administration, and closed its offices.

LA Noire was expensive to create and spent seven years in development. While the game sold decently (but not great), I wonder if there was ever a profit?

No wonder they closed the studio.

Blue covered why it was closing several times. The guy running Team Bondi was a jackass and Rockstar took development away from him. They had no interest in working with him anymore and his attitude ran the company into the ground.

Yeah, it sucks for everyone else there, but when you join a company run by a lunatic you're going to be in for a rough ride. Hopefully some of them built up connections with Rockstar during that time and can found a new company with better management. I think this has already happened but I don't remember.
