According the folks that run the Warner Archive page, The Las Vegas Story (1952) "will most likely be available sometime later this year."
Fox just released "Diplomatic Courier" with Tyrone Power. This has only be previously available as a Region 2 European release and on collectors' sites. Great movie!
Close-Up (1948) is being released by Alpha in July:
The lost film noir classic. A photographer accidently photgraphs a Nazi war criminal on the streets of New York and becomes a target for reprisals and murder.
Slattery's Hurricane (1949) - a subject of "noir or not" article by Eddie Muller, is getting a made-on-demand release from Fox in July.

When asked about a possible release of the Anthony Mann noir Two O'Clock Courage (1945), here's what Warner Archive had to say:
"we're pleased to report that indeed Warner Bros. does own the rights, and that WAC intends to release the feature if the existing source elements can yield a high quality remaster."
just watched Two O Clock Courage on TCM and except for the foggy night opening & the
amnesia element it's not noir at all, 2 years and 2 more films from T-Men there's no sign
of the great noir director he would become.
Olive Films added two more Republic noirs not mentioned previously to their slated release:
Hell's Half Acre

And now for something completely different - Something Weird brings us:
Weird-Noir: Six B-Movies
6 films on 2 discs to be released September 25.GIRL ON THE RUN (aka HONKY TONK BURLESQUE) (1953, B/W, 66 Minutes): A hootchy-kootchy whodunit set at a small seedy carnival where a reporter tries to discover who killed his boss while his girlfriend inexplicably joins the burlesque show! Pure carny-noir. THE NAKED ROAD (1959, B/W, 74 Minutes): When a woman is left with a corrupt Judge as collateral for a speeding ticket (say what?!), a Good Samaritan bails her out... then holds her prisoner as a future sex slave in this utterly off-kilter, truly weird Weird-Noir. THE SEVENTH COMMANDMENT (1961, B/W, 82 Minutes): A preacher with amnesia and the power to heal (!) quickly plunges into the gutter when his ex-girlfriend-with-a-grudge shows up to blackmail him in this marvelous pulp mix of sex, revenge, and outright obsession! FEAR NO MORE (1961, B/W, 78 Minutes): Accused of killing a woman on a train, Sharon Carlin runs home to find another corpse there too! FALLGUY (1962, B/W, 62 Minutes): Hot shot teen Sonny Martin stops to help the victim of an auto accident but quickly realizes he’s stepped into a murder in progress. STARK FEAR (1962, B/W, 85 Minutes): After the abusive husband of cult fave Beverly Garland disappears, you’d think she’d celebrate. Instead, she tries to find the bum and, as expected, things get worse.
Lots of new DVDBeaver reviews of noir films are up.

They Made Me A Criminal/Lady Gangster: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film4/dvd_r...a_criminal.htm
The Alpha release of For You I Die looks terrible. Man of Courage looks slightly better, but still not very good.

How accurate are the listing for Olive Films on IMDb? Because there are so many films that state "Distributor (2012) (USA) (DVD) (DVD and Blu-ray)"?
The reason I ask is you see films such as
The Dark Mirror
Beware my Lovely
and so many more. I don't want to get my hopes up, and I don't see these on the Olive Films website.
