Rockstar Games removes Agent from its official games list

Rockstar Games’ AgentOne of the vaporware wraiths that anyone who has two brain cells can tell is not going to be released is this. But because AAA publishers can never give a straight answer when they cancel a project, fans return the courtesy with needling mentions of their undead creations’ theoretical existence.

Rockstar has had enough. Agent was quietly removed from the publisher’s official website, where it had been — if only in name — since it was announced at Sony’s E3 2009 news conference. Remember, the license to kill also allows you to be murdered.

Rockstar Games representatives were not available for comment when we contacted them. That’s OK, the fact the company abandoned the Agent trademark in 2018 still does all of the talking.

If Agent is no longer on Rockstar’s list of everything-we’ve-done-and-are-doing, what are fans missing out on? Agent Always sounded strange, which now makes it seem incompatible with Take-Two Interactive’s expectations of Rockstar. Agent was to have been a classic console exclusive, for PlayStation 3, apparently as a sophisticated single-player narrative with a swanky ’70s vibe.

Arkane Studios and Bethesda Softworks may have done that work last month. Deathloop but such things are no longer Strauss Zelnick’s cup of tea. But not in this age. Grand Theft AutoOnline Red DeadOnline And NBA 2K22’s MyPlayer.

So let’s just say that Agent’s still not confirmed, still not denied, and its government still denies all knowledge of its whereabouts or activities. But for sure we’ll continue to update this story whenever there’s a mention of Agent There’s always something next to it, as in Langley’s wall of stars. Half-Life3. And Beyond Good and Evil 2.
