One of two things. 1. It's been cancelled and rather than make an announcement of the cancellation, they simply took it off their website and hoped that people have forgotten about it by now. Or, 2. They're still working on it but it's still nowhere near complete, and now they've realized what a mistake it was to announce it so early to begin with and figure that everyone's forgotten about it by now anyway.

 

EDIT: I just checked, it's actually still on the Rockstar website and on the Social Club for me. Of course, everything is still outdated and it still all says it's coming to the PS3 (complete with the old PS3 logo). Honestly, by now, it wouldn't shock me if this was cancelled.

I'm thinking Agent was put on hold because of the appearing of the current-gen consoles. We may or may not see Agent for PS4 in the future.

If it was cancelled I'm sure they would've said something...although when was the last time they even mentioned this game?

I don't think it's cancelled either. Here's my rundown of what * I think * is happening:

 

- 7 years since announcement

- We know it was originally a PS3 exclusive

- If it releases it's obviously going to be on PS4. (We have no idea if it's still exclusive to Sony. Probably not)

- Work most likely started on it soon after announcement (Very early designs)

- Sometime before 2010 work stopped to focus on RDR and MP3

- R* knows what they want to do with the game. Realized they can do so much more with new tech. So now it's a very ambitious project.

- Which leads us to today.......still waiting

This project is sitting on the shelf (well it was during GTAV dev cycle) along with Bully II, by the way the internal name for this seemed to brand it as "aGENT" later on, so I guess if it ever does surface, it would be under that style.

It was confirmed to still be in development in May 2010. When asked about Agent at Take Two's Q1 2013 report in August 2012, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said "we haven't announced anything about that title" this however is very ambiguous.

 

If it is indeed still in development I can't see it being released until at least 2016 since we have yet to see a trailer of the game. I think its pretty much a given at this stage that it will be a new gen title but the question still remains will it be cross platform? Most likely and will it be cross gen? I think this all depends on the userbase of the PS4 and XBox One to be honest. I think it would be a safe bet to still make this game a Playstation exclusive but making it PS4 exclusive would be financial suicide.

aGENT? I'll bet the protagonist will be a Bond-like British spy. I hope Bully 2 sees a release someday, I loved the first one, and didn't they hire a guy to do the soundtrack for Bully 2 back in 2009 or 2010? When I heard that, I figured we would have seen it released by now.

It probably will be cross-platform, with some exclusive DLC for the PS4 if they decide to make anything exclusive after all. LA Noire was supposed to be a PS3 exclusive just like Agent, but that ended up going cross-platform as well. Unless Rockstar and Sony have some kind of deal still in place over exclusivity of the game.

Man, they've been so quiet with this that I've actually lost interest in this title :(

 

Hopefully we hear something soon... this is like waiting for GTAV heists.

I f*cking hope Agent will be as good as Half life 3 if they keep delaying it so long.

Agent is shaping up to be longest kept secret in Rockstar's history. It has been 5 years so far since it was revealed without anything on the game, even L.A.Noire had 4 years of silence before it was revealed in Game Informer's March 2010 cover story. If this game wasn't the next title on Rockstar's radar, then I would believe that it has been nothing but a vaporware product.

According to Gamefly, it's been canned.

This reminds me of the game Eight Days which was/is also a PS3 exclusive. Maybe like Eight Days, Agent is on hold.

I think if they do ever decide to announce it again that it'd probably be multiplatform.

If you read it properly, the letter posts two reasons, so the cancellation is not confirmed so far. Even the article says this isnt a full confirmation.

The first reason doesn't make sense considering the game isn't out.

That would make no sense to "no longer carry" the game since it's not even released, so therefore it's most likely canceled or on hold.

 

What a shame :(

Yeah my bad. Had to re-read it. But even then, the cancellation isn't directly confirmed from R*, and even if it is, we don't know if it's a total cancellation or if they're planning to make it a next gen exclusive.

ing to make it a next gen exclusive.

Is it in Rockstar's history that they officially announce a title and then they announce its cancellation later? as far as I remember, no, it's not in their history. If it's already canceled, why would they keep silent about this? just announce it already. I would say that the game's development was put on hold several times in the past years in order to allow Rockstar to focus on other games like GTA V. The game hasn't entered full production yet, but they're still exploring ideas and creating concepts/arts/assets, more like cooking the game on a backburner.

Agent.jpg?6eb890

A few days ago we reported that GameFly started sending e-mail messages to those that had Rockstar’s PS3 exclusive cold war stealth action game Agent in their wishlist, warning about the removal of the game due to a cancellation by the publisher.

We reached out to the retailer for a clarification, asking if the information really came from Take-Two. Today we received the following answer from a GameFly representative:

While the message does not specify whether GameFly received any information directly from Take-Two, it does clarify that the message is an automated mail and that the actual reason may not be a cancellation from the publisher.

Thank you for contacting GameFly. We apologize if the message was unclear. Please understand the automated email is sent in regards to all games being pulled form the GameFly website and may not be the exact reason why the game is being pulled from the GameFly website. At this time we are able to confirm the game will not be carried as a rental for the PlayStation 3 Console.

This means that we’re back to square one, and Agent may still be coming even if GameFly does not plan to offer it as a rental for PS3. We’ll have to wait and see if the rumored retooling of the game for PS4 will actually happen as a PS3 release nowadays is definitely unlikely.

In the meanwhile Take-Two Interactive requested and obtained on May 23rd an extension to the deadline for the submission of the statement of use required to keep the “Agent” trademark alive, effectively expressing the intention to actually use it. That could definitely be seen as a further indication that the game may still be coming.

We didn’t yet receive any statement on the issue from Take-Two Interactive, but we’ll keep you posted if anything new surfaces.

I think Agent coming to PS4/Xbox One they starting to do good now.

If it's already canceled, why would they keep silent about this? just announce it already.

Xbox One and PS4 is the answer
