Rockstar Games and Mulholland Books have announced that they will publish a series of short stories based around the characters and cases from the world of L.A. Noire. Called L.A. Noire: The Collected Stories, it will be available for download on June 6.
"L.A. Noire draws on a rich history of not just film, but also great crime literature for inspiration," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "Using the game's world as a springboard, we worked with the genre's best writers to create stories that lived up to the finest traditions of crime fiction."
"We are thrilled to be embarking on a creative partnership with the team at Rockstar Games," said Michael Pietsch, Publisher of Little, Brown and Company. "The possibilities for cross-promotions of this nature, encouraging gamers to read and readers to play games are huge. We're looking forward to a new frontier of book publishing possibilities and see Rockstar as an ideal partner."
