in weapon configurations Max Payne 3 is listed there are things like:
 
GADGET_CAMERA
GADGET_STICKY_CAM
GADGET_DIRECTIONAL_MIC
GADGET_NIGHTVISION
GADGET_SKISE
GADGET_PARACHUTE_DESERT
GADGET_PARACHUTE_ALPINE
GADGET_DPV
LOADOUT_CHEAT_0_ALPINEЅ
LOADOUT_CHEAT_0_DESERT
 
VEHICLE_WEAPON_DUNE
VEHICLE_DATA_DUNE
SLOT_GADGET_STICKY_CAM
SLOT_GADGET_CAMERA
SLOT_GADGET_DIRECTIONAL_MIC
SLOT_GADGET_NIGHTVISION
SLOT_GADGET_PARACHUTE_DESERT
SLOT_GADGET_PARACHUTE_ALPINE
SLOT_GADGET_DPV
 
Max Payne 3\pc.rpf\data\metadata\mp_weapons .dat(weapons.dat and some other date files in this folder)
 
I often came across NIGHTVISION for multiplayer pickupName="PICKUP_MP_SPECIAL_NIGHTVISION" it was never used, If we activate it, we get interference on the screen. And as for the rest I think this is the game of the agent.
the effect of MP_SPECIAL_NIGHTVISION at different levels, the effect is different:
 
 
I think that just the necessary effects are missing

It does indicate to me that R* did have at least one fully functionally or at least almost fully functional level for Agent.

 

Perhaps this was to be shown at a games conference or something to that effect?  No clue.

The alpine setting, winding roads, flipped cars and suits give off a sort of Bond type feel to it IMO. Real shame that we never saw this game in the end, felt like it would have been something fresh and unique not just for Rockstar but for the industry.

I agree. I have been looking forward to this game for so long now. It might still be in development though. I think there is a reason why they haven't removed it from their website (even when they redesigned it last year).

 

I mean how could they not want to release this game? 70's, cold war, spies, counter intelligence, traveling around the world - it sounds so awesome. You can really feel the vibes.

It's true that it's an exciting theme for Rockstar to tackle, but it comes with a financial risk for being a new IP. If it's not Agent, we should see a buffer title between GTA6 and Redemption 2, but you never know when T2 has an obligation to make the most financially sound decision for the satisfaction of shareholders. GTA6 will sell forever, Agent won't.

^ Yeah, it makes absolutely no sense to release new entries from their two biggest franchises back to back ... but I'm almost sure the game in-between won't be Agent. It's very like it'll be Bully 2 and I couldn't be happier about it!

But Bully sold extremely poorly. It's almost a bigger risk to release a Bully sequel than to release a new IP. Plus, the setting in Agent is something people are very familiar with both from movies and real life events. There has been no shortage of interest regarding Agent. I still see people asking about it everywhere on the internet.

 

Also on the last Take-Two shareholder meeting Strauss Zelnick was asked if they still will take risks and release new IP's, and he said "Definitely".

It's a big question will there be another one game between RDR 2 and GTA 6.
On a one side, Bully has some not large but strong fan base. But Bully 2 never
was really claimed to be in development. I know about that Game Infromer page
leak, but there is no other signs  that working on the game is really in progress
besides art work. On the other side, Agent really was in full development at some
point but after this it was shelved. Both games has some fan bases each one 
want to release their game first. Announcement of any of them  will probably mean
abandonement of another one at least for this console generation. So, no one wants
to step back.

^ It's been confirmed that Bully 2 has been in active development at some point ... sadly it was shelved more than one time but as rumors suggest it has recently been picked up by R* again and entered full development, aimed to be released after RDR2. I'm so looking forward to Bully 2 and I admit, if it isn't R* 's next game I'll be disappointed BIG time!

They have to release something between RDR2 and GTA VI. I actually created a topic about this a while back. GTA VI will probably be an even bigger success than GTA V, and will probably also have an online mode that Rockstar will focus on a few years after release. If they do not release something between RDR2 and GTA VI, then I don't see how they can be anything else than a GTA and RDR publisher.

If R* announces GTA 6 right after RDR2 WITHOUT any other game from them in-between I'll be deeply disappointed!

Words could not describe how disappointed I'd feel if that is to happen.

I just want Bully 2, is that too much to ask for?

Rockstar Games' finest deserves a sequel, after more than a decade since the originals' release!

Bully 2 has to happen ... more than any other game, really!

In my opinion, Bully 2 would be less risky than releasing a new IP like Agent. The reason is that there's already an established fan base for the game and it would be a sequel to a T-rated title, so it can be easily accessed by a wider spectrum of players unlike M-rated games. Even from a thematic perspective, it would be a more unique game in the present than a a spy-action game, so there's that. It's a cult classic followed by people like Emmi, and the first game usually ranks high in PS Classics downloads. As for my entertainment purposes, I would prefer an M-rated game, which is Agent in this case.

Yeah, I have also recognized that Bully usually ranks very high in the monthly PS Classics downloads, so there's that!

I think Bully 2 could (will) do to the Bully franchise what Red Dead Redemption did to the Red Dead franchise ... a huge success!

And Bully 2 would probably be one of the few games where an extended online mode would make so much sense and be so much fun.

There is simply so many directions, ideas ... R* can tackle with a Bully sequel.

I just keep my fingers crossed for it ... this time next year should be crucial for all us Bully lovers!

Of course if R* - for whatever reasons - has to further delay RDR2 - let's say into Fall 2018 in the worst case - all our dreams for a Bully 2 announcement by the end of 2018 are shattered.

For now I'm confident that Bully 2 is on track for a 2019 release. (I'm way more confident now because that LA Noire rumor from Yan turned out true ... and we all know he also said that Bully 2 would be next after RDR2!)

Man is looking at the post history of this thread depressing.

You can tell people first lose hope at the beginning of 2012.

It's like Max Payne 3 all over again, except this might actually never release.

Wow! Amazing, in fact I have further proof to these. In Max Payne 3's handling file, there is this:

ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "cptestbed"
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "vfx_test"
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "Alpine" <------------------------------------------------------
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "nettestbed"
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "Waterbed"
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "gta5"
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "MDtestbed"
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "Moon base"
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "codetest"
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "testbed"
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "Underwater"
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "nm_test"
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "Desert"
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "gta4"
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "anim_test"
ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "Space station"

 

 

It does indicate to me that R* did have at least one fully functionally or at least almost fully functional level for Agent.

 

Perhaps this was to be shown at a games conference or something to that effect?  No clue.

 

I believe that at the time of mp3 and gta5, they had only two levels of development in this alpine and desert. They just hovered in one place constantly altering and improving the graphics and technical components in step with the times. ASCII: (Jimmy) Load: "Desert" - I think this is the level from the agent we saw on the screenshots of the leak,also some textures and things for this level.Since from everything that was found a lot indicates only 2 levels and there is no further progress the more.
