PlayStation exclusive Agent finally abandoned by Rockstar and Take-Two

The trademark for Agent, a PlayStation exclusive from Rockstar North first revealed over nine years ago, has finally been abandoned.

The game was originally announced by Take-Two at E3 in 2009 alongside a logo, but the publisher and developer has never given any other details about the project. It was intended for release in the 2010 financial year.

“This trademark application was refused, dismissed, or invalidated by the Office and this application is no longer active,” reads the trademark filing, which was last updated in December 2015.

A description of the game still appears on Rockstar’s website with a few details about the project.

“Agent takes players on a paranoid journey into the world of counter-intelligence, espionage and political assassinations during the height of the Cold War at the end of the 1970’s,” it reads.

After the announcement, Take-Two was fairly bullish about the new game, stating that it would be “genre-defining”.

“The game, like anything from Rockstar North, is going to be very, very cool. It’s going to push the edge, it’s going to be genre-defining and it’s going to be a whole new way of experiencing videogames that we haven’t really seen before,” he told some loser at GamesIndustry.biz in another lifetime.

Alas, Agent is no more.
