Nevermind that the studio's litany of bad press and horrid management has gotten them in hot water with game developer unions, Team Bondi's got some bills to pay. Reportedly, the studio L.A. Noire built has quite the credit card debt.
When it was decided that boarding up the windows and doors would be the best way out of the mess, Team Bondi management still owed $1.4 Million to creditors. Edge reports that the money was owed to staff with huge chunks of the sum owed to developers who had stuck it out and worked the long hours rather than quitting and complaining about it.
Nearly $100,000 was still owed to the studio executives… each. What's more, Depth Analysis, the firm owned and operated by Team Bondi boss Brendan McNamara responsible for the MotionScan technology, is still owed $150,000.
It must be like f***ing Harry Potter over there with all the bills flying in from the chimney.
