First images of Rockstar's Agent appear
Ex-employee's portfolio includes two visualizations of the company's mysterious 1970s-set PlayStation 3-exclusive game.
Rockstar Games' Agent--a PlayStation 3-exclusive espionage title set in the 1970s--was first revealed in 2007 and later detailed at the 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo. Since then, the developer has remained utterly mum on the title. However, in May, parent publisher Take-Two confirmed that the game is still in development. Now, gamers have their first glimpse at the title.
A former Rockstar North environment artist's online portfolio includes multiple visualizations of Agent. The shots (at right) show a single character and indoor environments from the game.
Agent does not have a release date, and Take-Two said nothing about the game during its most recent financial call last week. However, when the game does ship, it will do so with high expectations.
In 2009, Take-Two president Ben Feder told GameSpot that Agent is being groomed to be the next Grand Theft Auto.
"It's the A team working on an AAA title," he said. "I think the subject matter, the characters, the story, the environment, the background--all the elements are there. It's such a rich environment to play in."
