Where the hell is Agent? Rockstar North’s espionage thriller was announced back in 2007, as an exclusive for PS3, and caused a huge stir at E3. It wasn’t until 2009, however, that any solid details emerged. The game is set in the 1970s, and features (to quote the press release) ‘the world of counter-intelligence, espionage and political assassinations’. So, basically, Spy Who Loved Me-era Bond, only with less Roger Moore sex-pesting.
Given that Rockstar North is currently working on GTA 5, it’s safe to assume that Agent is ‘on the back-burner’ for now. However, it certainly hasn’t been publicly cancelled, leading some to speculate that it will appear on next-gen consoles. Then there’s the question of exclusivity. In 2011 Sony CEO Jack Tretton said that he was ‘unsure’ about whether or not Agent was still a Sony exclusive. So, putting all the pieces together, we reckon that Agent will be cross-platform release on next-gen. But that’s just our best guess… only Rockstar really knows.
