They made the announcement, almost in passing, during Sony's E3 press conference: the PlayStation 3 exclusive Agent , in development by Rockstar, was on the way.
We didn't get any additional details at the time and we still don't have much more besides baseline information : it's set in the undercover spy world of the 1970s and it has been rumored to feature a similar sandbox style to Grand Theft Auto . Rockstar has remained mostly mute on the project but we do have one additional quote that might intrigue you. They were good enough to answer a few questions , and although the reply was short, it's definitely promising. In response to the demand for "teasing," Rockstar said:
"Thank you – it's not likely we will have any more news this year, but the game is shaping up to be something truly spectacular."
Well, that's certainly a tease. Rockstar also says that Red Dead Redemption is en route to becoming a massive action title in 2010. Many have been waiting for this Western-themed shooter for quite some time; if you need a fix in the meantime, give Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood a try. As for Agent , we'd like to think more info will come our way next week at the Tokyo Game Show, but it may be the wrong audience for such a project. But we'll cross our fingers..
