Team Bondi staff owed $1.4 million

L.A. Noire

Two days ago it was revealed that the developer behind L.A. Noire, Team Bondi, will be shutting down. Now news has come out detailing a fairly significant debt involving the company staff.

Documents filed with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission show that a total of $1.4 million is owed to creditors. This includes a debt of approximately $1 million owed to 33 different staff members who helped work on L.A. Noire.

Among the former staff members detailed in the report are gameplay lead David Heironymus and studio head Brendan McNamara, who are owed $43,652 and $102,495 respectively.

The most surprising number though is the $145,795 owed to Depth Analysis, the company that developed L.A. Noire‘s MotionScan technology.

An appointed liquidator will be handling the payment of any outstanding debts before the studio officially closes.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
