For years, and years, and years, players wondered what would happen to the supposed exclusive PlayStation 3, Agent. It was a game that some assumed would be a great promise to be developed by Rockstar Games, but after years of silence, the fate of this long-awaited game has finally revealed itself. Is dead.
DualShockers reports that the parent company of Rockstar Games, Take-Two Interactive, has abandoned the commercial brand of Agent. As noted in the piece, the trademark was continuously renewed for the game over the years until recently, in which Take-Two decided to resign and abandon the trademark in the United States Patent and Trademark Office. .
More on the official page of the USPTO for Agent, shows the last time it was renewed, as well as when the brand was abandoned, noting that the last presentation date was December 5, 2016. It was noted that on February 21, 2017 the brand was re-approved, but since On November 19, 2018, the trademark had been abandoned because the USPTO never received a response or extension statement from Take-Two Interactive.
Essentially, the publisher has just given up the trademark of Agent Have years of renewal. However, this does not mean that the publisher was actually funding a game between that time or that development was even taking place. Sometimes, parent companies keep a trademark alive in case they decide to finish and launch a product or sell it to continue elsewhere. In this case, Take-Two seems to have just left the game after more than a decade of fans waiting for the release of the game.
Rockstar Games initially announced the stealth action title in 2007 as an exclusive PlayStation 3. It would be another two years before the game was officially announced at E3, where it was revealed that the game would be a sneak peek title from the era of the Cold War, not different. Metal Gear Solid.
Rockstar North was initially working on the game, which was supposed to be a globetrotting adventure set in the late 1970s, where players took control of an agent trying to uncover a mysterious conspiracy that was developing within ghost organizations and deep state agencies.
Obviously, it's the kind of concept one would expect from a Cold War style game, and it would probably have become, at least, a cult classic, much like Obsidian Alpha Protocol.
However, instead of seeing the game in action in any capacity, or receiving any kind of update in the game, the only thing that happened was that we would occasionally discover that Take-Two Interactive would renew the trademark of Agent, but then nothing more significant would arise.
Unlike other games stuck in the hell of development as The last guardian or Duke nukem forever, Rock stars Agent he never recovered and showed that the critics were wrong, and now it seems that Take-Two is wiping the hands of the game forever.
