Agent Appears on Rockstar Employee LinkedIn as “in Development” as of 2012
Perusing all of our Agent posts on PSLS, you’ll notice that it’s been quiet since around the time of E3 2011, where we hinted that it might not be PS3 exclusive anymore, Take-Two confirmed it was still in development, and we joked that it would make an appearance during the event.
Superannuation’s latest article highlights a LinkedIn posting by Jon Young, Research Video Editor at Rockstar Games, about his 8 year tenure at the company:
Create and deliver video assets mainly to the creative departments to inform and inspire their character, location and activity development at all stages of video game production.
Cull the history of film, TV, web television and documentaries editing and submitting video shorts and feature length DVDs to department VPs contributing largely to the production of Rockstar Games’ highest profile releases: GTA IV, Midnight Club Los Angeles, Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne 3 and many in development e.g., GTA V, AGENT.
There’s always the chance that this could be old information and Agent has ended development, but if you look at the games he lists as releases, Max Payne 3 came out in May 2012, GTA V isn’t out, and this PDF listing we dug up with Agent in it is from 2012. So, if Jon’s resume and LinkedIn dates are correct, as of May 2012 at the earliest, Agent is still in development.
We’ve reached out to Rockstar for any comment on the matter and we’ll let you know if we hear anything back.
We’ll ask the age old question – do you think Agent is ever coming out for the PlayStation 3? How about PS4? Let us know in the comments below.
