Could this mean yet another IP being ignored by Take Two
The fact that it has been this long and was intended to be a PS3 title pretty much is all you need to confirm it is not happening.
This. And the fact Rockstar North worked on GTA V and RDR2
The game’s been cancelled and there’s still more chance of this coming out than Star Citizen.
When it was first announced 90 percent of current Fortnite players were not born yet, that's how long ago it is
Just like how I've been waiting for a Snatcher sequel for 26 years 😅
😂 you don’t need to have a Nostradamus prediction to see this one coming🤣, but hey there still hope it’ll be developed before the fabled PS10🤷🏿 Edit I forgot to tell you it’ll be based on a true story of a ticket agent 😜 and it’s going to be a simulator
Rockstar still owns Sony that one exclusive game, right? Or maybe there was a monetary settlement being made already.
Hell no. It may be contractural, but there is no way Sony will make them hold their end up. You are bringing Rockstar to court with the possibility of ruining a relationship with possibly the biggest brands out there. ... oh and we didn't know the terms either.
Please just release the game already
There is no game to release.
A man can dream!
I think the writer is "a little late" if they are wondering on if Rockstar is ignoring the Agent game announcement. Anyone waiting this long for the game have gone to college, got married and had kids. It's not an IP if there wasn't any game released. It's just another reminder of an announcement that went nowhere. Same as Deep Down, 8 Days, Killing Day, The Getaway, etc. If it ever shows up, it would be the surprise of the year. But I wouldn't bother holding your breath.
It was all just a lie to get us to buy consoles
You're right. It was FRAUD
I wouldn't go that far. More like Rockstar was no longer committed in making games beyond their bread and butter GTA and RD that sells in the tens of millions. We see that today. No new IPs. No updates or sequels of their other games. No more Bully, no Warriors, no Midnight Club, no Table Tennis, no Manhunt, no Smugglers Run. Nothing but the above two games. No risk. I mean, they can't even be bothered to create DLC for those above games. Just milking the online with micro transactions. They announced Agent but were never committed to make it in my opinion.
This title was most likely fraud. Take-Two and Sony had a partnership. This is why every GTA prior to 4 was released on Playstation console first. Rockstar promised a new unique IP to Sony for the release of GTA time-exclusivity. I'm not mad, but I do genuinely think Sony was played with. What could Sony do? Bring them to court and ruin an incredibly strong relationship with the most dominant company in the industry? They were frustrated, I remember past interviews with Sony stating that they know nothing on Agent. Remember, Rockstar was still releasing games on a yearly basis when Agent was announced. In my opinion, one of the biggest gaming heists of all time and by fact... one of the biggest gossiped game of all time.
No lies, I went to uni, got married and am now expecting a kid hahaha I did however 99% give up on Agent, saved the 1% because I'm a dreamer
Lol. Well, it's nice to dream. Congrats on the baby. The way I look at it is if they were really committed to make it happen, they would have already. It just didn't fit into their GTA formula. No matter what people think of The Last Guardian, Sony seemed to commit to releasing it. Either it was the team, the producer, director, something. They WANTED to make it after Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. No matter how long it took. We may not see that happen again at Sony. I do respect them for that. But you can see the difference as Rockstar never released a trailer of the game, no updates, no developer interviews, etc. I figured it was dead after the first year. If it ever shows up, even "Duke Nukem" would smile.
Thank-you! It's exciting times and made me laugh when reading your comment because it put the whole saga into context. GTA Online has destroyed a lot of what we, the fans, expect from Rockstar. It is a shame because it feels like they're becoming a one game (new) a generation business now rather than a multi game developer. Can't ever diss the quality of what they deliver, just wish we had more (which isn't outrageous considering the bank they make)
Deep Down looked really great. Of course, we've had Dark Souls 3 and Bloodborne and more since then to fill the void.
R* won’t sell anything that isn’t proven to sell tens of millions. The gaming landscape has changed immensely since this game was announced and game development is too expensive and takes too long to incentivize making new IP’s.
For me it's the opposite.. I was married to my second wife and had a kid around that time.. now I've been divorced for 9 years, gotten obsessed with anime and visual novels recently and even got a Yui Hirasawa tattoo on my right now. If anything I've experienced extreme age regression in certain aspects, lol.
was once announced for PS3
Lmao someone still waiting for agent
Well I am.. then I'll actually enjoy something that Rockstar created for once aside from the first RDR, lol
Don’t hold your breath lol. They burn dollar bills to power their headquarters. It would have happened by now. It should have happened by now.
The first clue was not hearing about it in 20 years
I remember when Rockstar actively made games, not just paid assets for whatever game they churned out every half decade, if not longer.
They cut through the PS3/360 era like a knife through hot butter but Rockstar forgot what they made them so great in the last console cycle.
Wow Agent is ages ago I remember Rockstar had a deal with Sony on Agent exclusivity but its vapour ware now
The reason for it taking so long is because theh will release it for ps3, ps4, ps5, ps6, ps7, ps8, ps9, and last but not least PS10
‘Possibly’ confirmed. ‘Could this mean’’? lol All sounds like a satire article.
It would be foolish to still have thought that Agent was still a game being released knowing it was supposed to release 2 generations ago. R* is only focused on milking GTAV & online including RDR2 online.
Cancellation fears? So people thought this was still coming? This isn't dnf it was dead ten years back the assets absorbed into gta v how many articles did we get showing the turmoil of its Dev team and the fact that only one mission was ever built with rockstar asking the studio cool where's the rest of it? Then later making that mission again in GTA v Devs getting arrested in Egypt for photography and the game being in development from the PS2 generation are pretty strong signals that this was never happening.
Still waiting for Super Mario 128 on the N64 too!
People still think this game is coming?! We shall be lucky if we ever get a new IP from R*.
No shit its not coming out, we will be lucky if we get a new GTA in the next 5 years.
Fears!!!!!! Lol, no one cares anymore and hasnt for a long time
Pretty difficult to cancel something that was never happening in the first place.
Would be awesome if they released it this year…. for PS3
If I remember correctly didn't Rockstar abandon the agent trademark years ago??
They never abandoned it. Which is why people kept hoping. When the trademark ran out they kept renewing it. But that's all that people needed to hold on I guess.
They kept renewing it, which made people hopeful every time it happened.
Duke Nukem Forever 2.0
Its like the Deep Down of the PS3 gen
Lol I think anyone who thought this game was still in production at all needs to have a word with themselves. This was cancelled a long long time ago and swept under the rug.
Never had interest for that game to begin with. They are working hard to rerererelease GTA V and nothing new or creative
What fears? Is anyone still caring about this?
What fears? If anybody thought this was coming out they obviously were in denial. It was supposed to be a PS3 game for chrissakes.
So was Cyberpunk, lol
Cyberpunk was coming to PS3?
It was announced for PS3 and 360 back in 2011
An IP being ignored? Did it even ever really get started? This was announced 2 Generations ago! It had ZERO demo's not even a CG intro. I'm guessing this never really left the drawing board.
