Rockstar’s appearance at Gamescom left many wondering what they have up their sleeve. A recent trademark renewal for Agent suggests that Rockstar is finally ready to reveal the game to the public again, after years of prolonged silence.
Maybe reannouncement at PGS for Sony show?
Agent is worse than TLG by far. I don't expect it to ever come to fruition.
Ehh... what? Why not?
I dunno, probably because it's been 10 years and we've seen absolutely nothing?
Whatever Agent was...doesn't exist anymore. Agent the IP exists but it's probably been restarted/rebooted 3-4 times now.
maybe rockstar the moved the agent from ps3 and moved it forward towards the ps4 now
Agreed. Could be, happen to The Last Guardian and FFXIII Versus so who knows.
In 2009, you set Agent, so just do it. Make Agent come true! Do it!
Don't let your games be games...
They still owe Sony an exclusive after making Sony change their exclusive deal on L.A Noire for Agent. With the PS4 install base being much bigger then the PS3 at this stage in it's life cycle maybe this is what Rockstar were waiting for.
Sony was publishing LA Noire, the team took too long and the game cost too much money. The publishing rights where sold to Rockstar, Rockstar published LA Noire. After LA Noire released, Team Bondi sold the IP to Rockstar. It was no deal as it was actually a game that Sony was making in house, Team Bondi did The Getaway series for Sony back in the day. LA Noire was not made as a Rockstar Game, it was being made as a Sony published title at the time, all the way in 2003. Now I've heard this whole story of Sony selling the IP to Rockstar but that doesn't really have much bases to it. 1, Sony sold the publishing rights to LA Noire to Rockstar. 2. It was Team Bondi that sold the IP to Rockstar, not Sony. http://www.technobuffalo.co... Now this deal could have been done for the publishing rights being handed over so you may have something I guess. No one really knows any details of this deal with LA Noire or if one even exist, I mean if one does and I was mistaken I would like to see a link to any news of it, but thus far I just remember it as some gaming urban legend lol
They don't owe Sony anything.
Urm...yeah they do L.A Noire was swapped out for Agent Agent is no where to be found Sony paid Rockstar for L.A Noire but Rockstar kept money for Agent. They've never said they've gotten money back from Rockstar as Agent keeps popping up So yeah....they do owe Sony. Either that or give them their money back
"Sony paid Rockstar for L.A Noire but Rockstar kept money for Agent." How exactly do you know Sony was never compensated for whatever reason you are stating? Where did you even get this notion from?
It's been on here before...ages ago I would find it but honestly....I really can't be arsed to sit through all the articles on Rockstar to prove a point most people already know.
By legal bounds, Rockstar owes Sony absolutely nothing. Sony sold their publishing rights for LA Noire to Rockstar; in return, Sony expected the game to be a PS3 exclusive, but it ended up becoming multi-platform. It wasn't until 2007 when Rockstar and Sony secured a partnership to produce a game exclusive to the PS3. In 2009, that game was revealed to be Agent. In a 2011 E3 interview, Jack Tretton claimed that Agent was still in active development; however, he wasn't entirely sure if the game would end up being a PS3 exclusive. Link to interview: https://m.youtube.com/watch... In another 2013 E3 interview, Tretton admitted that he had no clue on what Rockstar was doing with Agent. Ever since then, trademark extensions have been surfacing from time to time, the last one registered on June 4th, 2015. Is Rockstar obligated to make a game exclusive to Sony's platform? That's debatable, seeing how Sony assures their heathy relationship with Rockstar in the past bears room for an exclusive deal.
This sounds more legit than Rockstar "owing" something to Sony. Especially after so much time has passed. I doubt Rockstar would be hurting for cash and trying to duck Sony.
Why do this to my heart?
Re-reveal in Paris Game Show as PS4 exclusive, sounds plausible !
Keeping my fingers crossed!
Is the game even in development yet?
Rockstar takes forever to make their games. If I'm not mistaken GTAV took them 5 years to make. So if Agent gets announced for a release in 2016/2017 it would be safe to assume that it's been in development for a while.
Its still listed on the official site, its even says its coming soon. http://www.rockstargames.co... http://www.rockstargames.co...
If they reveal this at PGS. http://i56.photobucket.com/... I'm not going to get my hopes up though but I find it odd that they renewed the trademark.
its annoying how all the PS3 announced games are being released on PS4. not everyone can afford a ps4 right now and wont get much for a ps3. and dont tell me, but ps3 cant bring the devs vision to life like they want. last guardian looks like a ps3 game, if you think not, get your eyes checked. im all for moving on and everything but certain gamers bought a PS3 for certain games that were announced. unfair to leave em hanging like that.
The Last Guardian didn't work on the PS3, it's why it got delayed so much, so it looking like a PS3 game is irrelevant, because it was too much for the PS3 to handle. I hope Agent is PS4, but really don't care if it's also on the PS3.
@IIFlody- agreed. @KingPin- consider Ico was once a PS1 game.... Would you have liked the game not living up to its true potential? I mean...you'll save yourself some money not getting a PS2, but you would also be missing out on what Ico could have been. What is the game really if its not even fully what the team wants to convey? I mean...would you want FFVII on N64 knowing that it wouldn't even be what we now today know as FFVII? Its much more then just a name, the concept your wishing to play may not even been done on PS3 the same way, why get lessor forever based your situation now? I feel you on not having the money, I have both a PS3 and PS4 and I play my PS3 actually much more based on huge backlogs, i I didn't get a PS4, I would very much still sorta be ok with it, I have so many games to beat its not even funny. But I would not some how wish a game be put on PS3 knowing it would over all harm the quality of the game forever. Who knows if The Last Guardian on PS3 would have even lived up to what was shown, the might have not been able to do the complex large full room puzzles ala Ico with such complex animations from that animal in the game. It might have worked on a small scale, but when put together, it might have been too tasking. It happens, they can't just release trash just because it was promised years and years ago. and The Last Guardian looks nothing like anything on PS3, PS3 just can't do that. hell even 360 is getting some titles on it like The Crew and Tomb Raider which just won't be done on PS3 due to its complexity. That is just unlikely. Also consider its not just how it looks, think of all the massive data from the animations and the date that is being saved for those large room puzzles? Its not just about looks bud, clearly something technical is feasible on current gen that isn't on last gen. Look at Crackdown 3, look at The Witcher III, look at Batman Arkham Knight. Some things are just not capable on last gen, graphics aside.
Called it. I knew it was still in development. Even Rockstar's site had it listed. Get ready for this game to be revealed at PGS, PSX or at E3 next year. I'm calling it now.
Assuming that it does get revealed. I expect a reveal of the game this year and a release in late 2016 or 2017. Like I said I won't get my hopes up but Sony surprised us plenty of times last E3.
@MasterCornholio Aww.. c'mon man.. have some hope dude. If Sony can reveal The Last Guardian then I know they can reveal this lol
This game is dead to me....
Please make this be a thing! Hope it is announced.
Hopefully a current gen release.also reminds me of another title it was a online fps called the agency?? For ps3 Looked interesting to. Time to do some Google searching
The Agency was an MMO in development by what used to be SOE. It was around the time DC Universe was close to being released that they decided to cancel the agency. The idea was cool but honestly the game looked trash.
Tretton always hinted at this so we all really knew it was still somewhere hovering about. Whenever he was asked he just refused to comment with a smile on his face.
Honestly I thought this was dead, but the last guardian is getting released so who knows lol But seriously after all these years I am expecting something special IF it does ever see the light of day
I hope this game get released. Everything from Rockstar is always a good game. Could it be possible that is still a PlayStation exclusive?
Definitely getting announced at PSX. MEGATON.
DONT TEASE ME WITH YOU'RE SEXY WORDS! Lol Seriously though, that would be epic
Haha the crowd would go wild. I was sure it would get announced at the past E3 but that came and went without a murmour. I suppose PSX does make more sense actually if its still a PS exclusive. To be fair though id rather it be multiplat so every one gets to play it. R* are Amazing devs!
Hoping PGS or the next PSX
Not holding my breath but when Sony dropped the bomb with the last guardian and the final fantasy 7 remake now definitely anything is possible
Doubt this game is being developed, let alone being released at any point in 2016.
