If over a decade of silence and a discontinued trademark wasn’t enough for you, rest assured that Rockstar Games’ PlayStation exclusive agent is no longer. The company destroyed every glimmer of hope that fans had left by quietly removing the game from its catalog on the official Rockstar Games website. The website for agent now redirects to the Rockstar homepage.

agent was first teased in 2007 when Rockstar Games announced that it was working on an exclusive PlayStation 3. “As part of our longstanding relationship with Rockstar and the incredible success for both companies with the cultural icon that is Grand Theft Auto We have agreed to PlayStation exclusive rights to the next great franchise from the Rockstar Studios, ”Sony told fans at the time.
At E3 2009, agent was finally revealed. But what happened after that is just a guess.
“agent takes players on a paranoid journey into the world of counter-espionage, espionage and political assassinations at the height of the Cold War in the late 1970s, “is the only information we have ever received for the title.
Sony hinted at that until 2013 agent was still in development. That year, Rockstar renewed the game’s trademark, and many assumed the developer was working on a cross-gen version or a (then) next-gen PS4 launch instead.
In 2014, rumors began to swirl about it agent has been canceled, and apart from a brand renewal in 2016, there have been no other developments around the title other than its recent removal.
Rest in peace.
