After the confirmation in 2010 that Rockstar’s PS3 exclusive cold war stealth action game Agent was still in development, not much has been heard about the game, besides a pair of trademarks registered last year.
Apparently, though, it may have been canceled, at least according to a mail that retailer Gamefly is sending to its customers who had Agent in their GameQ, as reported by NeoGAF user Fine Ham Abounds.
We have removed Agent (PS3) from your GameQ. There are two possible reasons for this removal:
1. For released titles, we no longer carry the game and do not know if or when we will acquire new copies.
2. For unreleased titles, the game has been cancelled by its publisher.
We apologize for any disappointment this may cause. If you have any questions, please contact us.
The GameFly Team
Of course this can’t be considered a full confirmation, as it comes from a retailer source and not from Take-Two itself, so we should consider it a rumor and take it with a sizable grain of salt.
Incidentally, the “cancellation” could also mean that the game may have been re-purposed for PS4 (effectively canceling the PS3 version), but there’s no confirmation on this one way or the other.
We reached out to Take-Two and GameFly with a request for further information, and we’ll keep you posted if we receive anything relevant.
Update: we received a clarification from GameFly, explaining that the message is an automated one, and the cause for the removal may indeed not be a notice from Take-two.
