Rockstar Video games’ Agent is a type of vaporware wraiths anybody with two mind cells is aware of isn’t gonna be launched. However as a result of AAA publishers can by no means give a straight reply once they cancel a venture, followers return the courtesy with needling mentions of their undead creations’ theoretical existence.
Seems to be like Rockstar had sufficient of that. Agent was quietly faraway from the writer’s official web site, the place it had been — if solely in identify — because it was introduced at Sony’s E3 2009 information convention. As soon as once more, we remind you that the license to kill can be a license to be killed.
We contacted a Rockstar Video games consultant and had been formally advised no remark! That’s OK, the actual fact the corporate deserted the Agent trademark in 2018 nonetheless does the entire speaking.
If Agent is now not on Rockstar’s listing of everything-we’ve-done-and-are-doing, what are followers lacking out on? Agent at all times appeared like one thing that now appears incompatible with the type of long-tail, blockbuster video games catalog guardian firm Take-Two Interactive expects from Rockstar. Agent was to have been a basic console unique, for PlayStation 3, apparently as a classy single-player narrative with a swanky ’70s vibe.
Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Studios could have made that work simply final month with Deathloop, however such issues are now not Strauss Zelnick’s cup of tea. Not within the age of Grand Theft Auto On-line, Crimson Lifeless On-line, and NBA 2K22’s MyPlayer.
So anyway, Agent’s nonetheless not confirmed, nonetheless not denied, and its authorities nonetheless denies all information of its whereabouts or actions. However for certain we’ll proceed to replace this story at any time when there’s a point out of Agent someplace, like on a wall of stars in Langley, subsequent to Half-Life 3 and Past Good and Evil 2.
