Agent is never ever going to be released
MrBeatdown  +   927d ago | Well said
If that was true of every Rockstar game that took forever to release, we wouldn't have any Rockstar games.

GTA5, LA Noire, Red Dead Redemption, and Max Payne 3 all took years to develop. Two of those were announced five years before release.

.....and it's been 6 years since Agent was where's gameplay or ANYTHING.

Last years E3 made me give up on these Vaporware games

And if these 2009 screenshots are to be believed it didn't look promising

It's been four years. It was announced at E3 2009. In 2007, all that was announced was that Rockstar had a deal with Sony. For all we know, development hadn't even started.

It took Rockstar five years from showing the first footage of RDR to release. It was "Rockstar Old West Project" in 2005. And we didn't hear a thing about it until 2009 (four years!) when RDR was formally announced. Four years of silence, and when we finally heard something, it still took over a year to release.

LA Noire was talked about as far back as February 2004. It got it's title in 2005. Rockstar announced they were publishing it in 2006. Yet we didn't even see the game until 2010. And it still took another year to release.

Rockstar was far enough along in Max Payne 3 to put it in Game Informer in 2009, with a full, in-depth cover story. Then it still took an additional three years for it to release, and there was so little information following the reveal that there was even speculation it was cancelled. Oh, and in 2004, Take-Two's CEO confirmed Max Payne 3 was happening. Eight years later it released.

GTA4 went through two years of absolute silence after it was announced at E3 2005. We didn't hear a thing until spring 2007 when Rockstar did a countdown to the first trailer. And it took another year to release.

Hell, Rockstar even went an entire year without releasing any GTA5 information aside from a screenshot or two after releasing the first trailer, and it had to have been in development since 2008.

I'm not sure why you think Agent is non-existent, considering the ridiculous track record Rockstar has. Just about everything they've released, aside from GTA this generation could have been considered vapor or cancelled at some point, and was talked about waaaay too early. Absurdly long development times isn't the only thing all those games have in common... All of them were eventually released. There's no reason to think Agent will be any different.

Yet Agent breaks precedent, I'm a huge fan of Rockstar and have no doubt IF this game gets released it quality will be excellent....Yet this game only screenshot is from a devs resume? I'm Sorry until I see something Official from Rockstar this game is dead to me.

But by all means keep hope alive .....
abzdine  +   926d ago
there is so MUCH hype around the PS4, i hope Sony will keep the promises because if they do, PS4 will be the best console ever released.

Let's also hope for a 399$ price point!
loulou  +   926d ago
R* have bigger fish to fry, and more money to be made from a multiplat GTA V.

the agent, if not vapourware, will come next gen... to both ps4 and nextbox
minimur12  +   926d ago

its being dev'd by rockstar north, they've got their hands full with GTA V at the moment so thats proably why its on delay.
princejb134  +   926d ago
at least when rockstar announces a game we here news about it every other week to keep the hype up, we havent heard anything about agent except that is coming sometime in the future
we heard of agent way 6 years before gta5 was announced
Blaze929  +   927d ago
Oh Agent will be released, on multiple platforms. Now, commence the delusional disagrees captain.

Well Rockstar owe Sony a exclusive since Sony funded LA Noire and that went multiplatform
rocky047586  +   927d ago
That's not going to happen. Sony is funding this game. That's like saying that Resistance can suddenly now be on Xbox since the devs are creating games for multiplat now. If Sony is giving Rockstar money to make them an exclusive game, it will remain exclusive. The ONLY way this game would see another console other than a Sony one is if Sony stops funding it and takes its' money out of it and Rockstar continues developing it with their own money.
CEOSteveBallmer  +   926d ago
The only one delusional here is you. How stupid is that, funding a game and it will become multiplat?? Genius comment troll
Blaze929  +   926d ago
@griever137 @rocky047586

lmfao uhh, LA Noire???
Codey47  +   926d ago
@ AnotherProGamer
Sony pulled out of L.A. Noire's funding many moons ago
Apparently due to Rockstars' broken promises and allegedly "bad blood" between Phil Harrison and Brendan Mcslavedriver.

@ Rocky
Well Fuse is going multiplatform, as most of us know, due to Insomniac owning the rights to it's new I.P.

The rights to the Resistance franchise is wholly owned by SCE

What do you mean Mr Bond? I've been playing it for years.

Rainstorm81  +   927d ago
I agree and anyone who think otherwise is delusional.....we don't have a single screenshot or ANYTHING to suggest that this game will ever see the light of day.

Even RDR, GTAV, MP3, LAN, had tangible evidence that they were in development. As of right now the FF7 remake Last Guardian and FFvs13 has much more hope of releasing before AGENT

I mean come on all we have is a premise and a title graphic. RDR had more than that before it had its Title.......... The game was Announced in 2007....6 YEARS AGO!!!!!!

Yeah. People need to stop even talking about it. It's not coming out. Agent will never happen. At this rate we'll have HL2:EP3 before we get Agent.
rocky047586  +   927d ago
Did you not read what was above? There was 5 years in between Rockstar announcing Max Payne 3 from them even saying it existed in 2009. Without a single screenshot or anything "tangible" to say it existed. Same thing with LA Noire, Red Dead Redemption, and GTA4 and 5 as well. They just take forever showing and releasing their games and we know why, because they are perfecting it.

And no, you're wrong. Red Dead had nothing more than an announcement. And this Agent game was announced in 2009 not 2007. Get your facts straight sir.
Rainstorm81  +   926d ago
@ rocky RDR had a trailer when it was formerly known as Untitled PS3 old west project or Red Dead Revolver 2007

I'm sorry every other R* project has had some kind of official release by this time.....but as I said before.....By all means Keep hope alive

I guarantee that it was put on hold so they can improve GTA:V.
Look at RDR, I think that was first shown in 2005 - I may be wrong.

And so is Duke Nukem. The other was just a publicly released beta.
Lior  +   927d ago
You mean alpha/concept
Root  +   927d ago
Well it has to be....they still owe Sony something after they paid for L.A Noires development.
Nitrowolf2  +   927d ago
LA Noir was an awesome game, I really hope they do another one.
Root  +   927d ago
I liked it but because you were a policeman and you couldn't do a GTA or even Red Dead where you could go around and do what you wanted with it's MASSIVE got pretty boring.

Plus I never liked that stuff like wooden fences weren't able to break despite smashing into them with your would of came in useful for those car chases.

I just hope AGENT being a fully developed rockstar game will offer a GTA like experience where there's lots to do
T2  +   926d ago
La noire is unique but ya it could have been bit more open

Dont give a click to Kotaku ...

Agent was a PS2 game originally. It's the next Duke Nukem when it comes to delays.

Hopefully Gearbox don't get the rights. We know there track record when it comes to releasing a game from development hell.

Square Enix on the other hand knows how to take a game from development hell (Sleeping Dogs) & turn it into a fantastic game.
stuntman_mike  +   927d ago
isn't agent still advertised on Rockstars own website? i could be wrong about that.

But still i would love to play this, a secret agent game made by Rockstar would be awesome.
Exquisik  +   926d ago
It even has its own website.
stuntman_mike  +   926d ago
If it wasnt still being made i'm sure Rockstar would of took that site down. Usually Rockstar are on the ball on those things.
LAWSON72  +   927d ago
Talking to a ps4, i wish i could do that so I to could learn all its secrets.
nick309  +   927d ago
Maybe agent became a different game or will have a different title, obviously improved cuz of the years& next gen.
DivineAssault  +   927d ago
Its coming soon enough.. Im just hoping that it turns out being a good game... Rockstar is notorious for making quality software but this has been in limbo for quite some time.. If it ends up looking like a good enough game, PS4 has another system seller coming out.. They just keep dropping bombs left & right! No way in hell im going to miss out on PS4...Devs love PS4 so nx gen they will get even more great games @ a faster rate too!

Neko_Mega  +   926d ago
If anything, it might just come to PS3 first and later with some extra stuff to PS4.

Sony has been hinting they got something big, this could be it or maybe theirs more. Who knows with Sony, its kind of hard to guess what they are thinking.
bigtrucknd  +   926d ago
Agent will probably be the name of a mission in GTA V.
illtornworld  +   926d ago
I like the name Agent. hopefully we hearsomething soon.maybeE3 ;)

So it will be available at midnight?
