Interesting sounding ‘Whore of the Orient’ on hold as devs get sacked

Whore of the orient
Unconfirmed rumours by multiple sources have told MCV [via AllGamesBeta] that some of the team that brought us L.A.Noire have been sacked, and so the development of the current project – Whore of the Orient – has come to a stand still.

Whore of the Orient was first announced in late 2011, though details were scarce, we learned that it would star a 1936-version of Shanghai, “the most corrupt and decadent city on the planet”.

The game that was destined to the PC was never officially unveiled by the publisher, but was sparsely detailed by an ephemeral web site.

It is unconfirmed whether the studio has completely closed its doors.
