LA Noire cancelled project surfaces online, revealing cut content

LA Noire cancelled project surfaces online, revealing cut content

This project could follow a true crime case

It appears as though the original developers of L.A. Noire once had a follow-up project in the works according to a recent Instagram post by composer and performer Freyja Garbett.

Released back in 2011 by Team Bondi and published by Rockstar Games, L.A. Noire was a hit action-adventure game set in 1947 Los Angeles. It followed the rise of detective Cole Phelps as he solved a variety of cases across various bureaus.

However, after the release of L.A. Noire, Team Bondi closed up shop but a studio made up of some former team members was soon established and is now known as Video Games Deluxe. It was this team that worked on L.A. Noire: The V.R. Case Files which was released back in 2017.

However, according to a recent Instagram post which has since been taken down, Australian composer and performer Freyja Garbett revealed that she had been working on some music for Video Games Deluxe's next game which would be titled Sowden House.

“From the creators of L.A. Noire comes Sowden House, a psychological thriller set in 1940s L.A. that will have you questioning your sanity,” Garbett posted alongside a video of music being recorded.

“I never thought I’d be writing for a video game but I’m grateful for the opportunity! This was the second video games session recording and it features the ‘jazz band’,” she continued.

If you are a true crime fan then you will know that Sowden House refers to a home owned by Dr George Hodel, one of the prime suspects in the Black Dahlia case back in 1947. It was in this house that Hodel’s son claimed the murder had taken place.

However, Video Games Deluxe has since come forward to issue a statement about this piece of music and reveals it has nothing to do with its current project.

“We are working exclusively on projects for Rockstar. We commissioned some music from a local composer Freyja Garbett for a VR project that we were working on a number of years ago when between projects," they said.

"It is based on a case from LA Noire that did not make the cut but was more of a tech demo than anything else. We have no idea whether this will ever see the light of day but we decided to finish the score commission to support a local composer.”

So it remains to be seen what will become of Sowden House but with such an intriguing story behind it, we hope it will one day see the light of day.
