Take-Two Interactive is giving fans hope that the mysterious "Agent" video game is still in development. According to a report from Complex on May 25, the parent publisher behind "GTA 5" has renewed the trademark for the new intellectual property. The project was originally announced for the PS3 at E3 2007 during a press conference held by Sony Computer Entertainment.
"Agent" was first disclosed as an exclusive title for Sony's current-generation console. However, an executive from the console manufacturer admitted in the past that the exclusivity deal may have been put on hold. The publisher has not yet revealed any assets for the video game so far aside from a logo. The software product is described as an action-adventure game set during the Cold War period of history.
Rockstar North was listed as the main developer of "Agent." However, the studio went on to create "GTA 5," which was released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 last year. The same team is also continuing support for the latest "Grand Theft Auto" game with DLC packs for "GTA Online" as well as the single-player campaign mode. A port of the recently-launched title is also rumored to be heading to the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms at some point. A screen of "GTA 5" from the Facebook page of Playstation can be seen near the top side of this article.
"Agent" is apparently the "dream project" from one of the co-founders of Rockstar North. The aforementioned trademark renewal suggests that the development team is not ready to give up on the project. With the advent of the PS4 and Xbox One, however, it is unlikely that the video game would be coming to the PS3.
Take-Two Interactive announced recently that Rockstar Games would be releasing a next-generation game sometime before the end of March of 2015. The rumored releases of "GTA 5" on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One could be a possibility. On the other hand, the company could surprise "Agent" fans with a potential launch of the software product.
