L.A. Noire was originally released to mostly positive reviews, and although it featured little action was lauded for its facial animation and authentic '40s detective atmosphere.

Check out our list of upcoming PC games for more unexpected releases. There have been rumours of an L.A. Noire remaster for a few months now, as well as a Switch release.


The rumours came from tipsters on Twitter, one of whom was a noted Rockstar insider, who published Tweets suggesting that Rockstar were planning on bringing LA Noire to Nintendo Switch, along with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The latest update suggests that not only will LA Noire feature new and improved visuals, but also a first-person mode and even PlayStation VR support.


Now recently we have ComicBook.com which cited three different sources that also said a remaster was in the works.

The rumour comes from WWG and claims that three separate sources have informed them that Rockstar Games - publisher, but not lead developer of the original - has been prototyping a VR mode for the game. However, if you don't have a PSVR no worries, as the report goes on to state that the game is going to have a first-person mode like GTA V for all platforms.


How awesome would be an L.A. Noire remaster? The game was apparently scheduled for a late 2017 release, but Rockstar may prefer to release it next year, most likely after Red Dead Redemption 2, which launches next Spring. That said still take this with a pinch of salt until we get an official announcement from Rockstar.
