    Default Rockstar Breaks Up With Team Bondi.....

    It has been clear the development of LA Noire was troubled, with the International Game Developers Association recently describing reports of working conditions at Team Bondi, the Australian studio behind the game, as "absolutely unacceptable." Emails revealed to industry site GamesIndustry.biz have laid bare more troubles at the house responsible for the development of the most expensive game ever to come out of the antipodean nation.
    "I've heard a lot about Rockstar's disdain for Team Bondi, and it has been made quite clear that they will not publish Team Bondi's next game," an unnamed source said to GI.biz. "Rockstar used to be very keen on making Team Bondi something like 'Rockstar Sydney'--the more they worked with Team Bondi management, the more they came to understand that this was a terrible idea."
    The leaked emails detail the frustrations of senior management, with studio head Brendan McNamara saying "I'll never forget being treated like an absolute **** by these people," in reference to L.A. Noire branding that omitted Team Bondi branding. The emails also confirm the issues with working conditions that had been previously reported, with seven-day weeks of 12-hour days being standard in early 2009, more than two years before the game's eventual release.
    L.A. Noire was first revelated in 2004, and was initially rumoured to be PlayStation exclusive; Rockstar snapped up the title in 2006. Speaking at the time, McNamara said, "The longstanding mutual respect and the combined experience between the two of us make this a great partnership."

    Well some people are saying the opposite, that LA Noire would have been a haphazard mess if Rockstar had not dropped in to provide some direction and momentum. They provided Team Bondi with a lot of resources in addition to money and also helped to code some parts of the game.But really, amar ato kisu janar dorkar nai, LA Noire PC version shomoy moto release hoilei hoilo

    la noire is a success ??? dat seems to be an overstatement

    ---------- Post added at 15:05 ---------- Previous post was at 15:03 ----------

    or the headlines shud be like, since LA noire sales were disappointing, it led to breakout of relations between Team Bondi and Rockstar

    L.A. Noire dev: Studio will learn from mistakes

    Lead gameplay programmer at Team Bondi offers his side of development story to IGDA; 65-hour work weeks were "average," can't say 100-hour weeks didn't happen.



    Rockstar Games' L.A. Noire won positive reviews, sold 899,000 units in its first month, and has shipped some 4 million units to date. However, it hasn't been a total pleasure cruise for the publisher. The International Game Developers Association (IGDA) is currently investigating developer Team Bondi for workers' rights complaints, calling reported working conditions at the Australian studio "absolutely unacceptable."

    One Team Bondi employee, however, is not taking such a hard line against the developer. Studio lead gameplay programmer Dave Heironymus recently published the letter he wrote to the IGDA on industry site Gamasutra, explaining his side of the story.

    Heironymus was one of the original five team members at the developer and admitted that he is part of the "management goon squad" at Team Bondi. He has been a part of the development team of L.A. Noire almost from its inception to its conclusion, a duration of more than half a decade.

    Heironymus said that during the "early years" of L.A. Noire, the Team Bondi developers "generally" worked regular 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. hours. However, he claims that as time progressed and development milestones were not reached, "there was growing pressure to work longer hours." He said there were times when "it seemed too hard to keep going" and that during these moments staffers dropped off the project.

    Working on the weekend came next. Heironymus said this move was "inevitable," but Team Bondi "put in place a scheme to (generously) reward employees for their weekend days spent at work." Further, Heironymus claims that in the final six months of the project, Team Bondi rewarded those who worked late on weeknights with an additional four weeks of vacation time following the completion of L.A. Noire.

    Heironymus also wrote about just how much time he spent in the office during a typical week. He said that "around 65 hours" per week was an accurate average and that "at no time did I ever work 100 hours per week." However, Heironymus did concede that he "can't say no one ever worked 100 hours per week." Working this many hours, claims Heironymus, was "not encouraged."

    Heironymus was quick to dispel the notion that management at Team Bondi had it easy while the rest of the developers worked hard.

    "The management team at Team Bondi was not ensconced in an ivory tower working normal hours while everyone else crunched," he wrote.

    Looking forward, Heironymus said that Team Bondi does not view crunch time as a "good way to work" and that the studio is "actively" working to learn from the mistakes it made working on L.A. Noire.

    "Please think about that when you talk about boycotting L.A. Noire or about how heinous Team Bondi is," he wrote. "There is a team of dedicated game developers here in Sydney that look forward to learning from their mistakes, improving on their successes and taking on the world again next time around."
