Unless he starts working for Rockstar, that is.

At E3 2009, Sony announced on-stage during its E3 press conference that Agent, a new IP from Rockstar North, was in development exclusively for PlayStation 3. The deal between Sony and Rockstar was announced in July 2007. It’s 2012. Where is it? Spike TV’s Geoff Keighley asked that question to Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Jack Tretton today. But apparently, he’s not the person to ask.

“You couldn’t have said it better when you said ‘Agent from Rockstar’,” said Tretton. “I work for Sony Computer Entertainment. The minute I start working for Rockstar, I’ll have some definitive information for you on Agent, but I’d suggest you interview one of those guys.”

“That’s what I’ve said for the last five years, and I’ll continue to do that.”

And the wait continues.

  • As much as I like want to play a new IP from Rockstar, it would be safe to assume that this game is currently in development hell, or have been cancelled secretly by Rockstar.

      I wouldn’t say that. When this game was announce they had to get, Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire, Max Payne 3 all out first and they probably have been working on GTA V and Agent at the same time. Plus this game was more as a gift from Rockstar for Sony allowing to let GTA go multiplat.

    I remember last year he didn’t even know if it was still exclusive. Personally I don’t care if it or not because R makes damn good games.

    I guess we have to wait for Rockstar to have their own media day.

    Not at e3 again…

    They should probably have something soon though, rumor is GTA V is coming this October.

    We have only seen like 1 teaser trailer for it. If they do plan to release it, they have to get the ball rolling.

    Hopefully when that happens they might update everyone on Agent.

    The vaporware comments are starting to feel more legit.

  • ROFL I had totally forgotten about this game. Hope that they’re working hard on this game!
