Anonymous Team Bondi tweets causing a stir
A person under the guise "veracious_shit" has recently been using the Twitter service to unload a whole lot of well known truths, half-truths, and other unpleasantries concerning the behind-the-scenes development of Team Bondi's L.A Noire.
Understandably, it's cause a bit of a sensation around gaming sites with the Twitter stream reported by various websites including Kotaku, Play.tm, and Strategy Informer. It comes at an untimely point for publisher Rockstar who recently promised a big reveal next month for the title.
The tweets start with the development background for the head of Team Bondi, Brendan McNamara, and then mainly concerns the power-struggles involved with Sony (the original publisher for L.A Noire), and staff retention issues at the Sydney studio.
While a lot of tweets made by veracious_shit has been general knowledge for quite a while now, I've been informed by developers who used to work at Team Bondi that various bits of information are very much incorrect (particularly those regarding Sony) and that the timeline in which things were reported are way out of order. It was the opinion of one ex-Team Bondi developer that the information posted in the Twitter stream is second hand knowledge of accounts.
