A. Noire</a> with the words "May 20th" clearly marked down in red Sharpie. A leaked trailer confirmed a May 17th release date for North America over the weekend. All makes sense now, eh? There's a new trailer due this afternoon.

“L.A. Noire breaks new ground for us,” said Rockstar boss Sam Houser. “Its intense blend of action and real detective work defies genre conventions to create a unique and captivating thriller.”

L.A. Noire's been in development for what seems like forever. Don't count out a final stealth delay.
