Agent Artwork Surfaces, GTAV May Have Sidelined Project

It was first announced as an ambitious new PlayStation 3 exclusive from Rockstar way back in 2009.

Since then, however, we've heard very little of the game called Agent. Nobody really knows if it'll ever land on store shelves, but one of the game's artists has produced some screenshots of his artwork for the title.

Environment Artist Darren Hatton's online portfolio (as spotted by the IB Times) includes samples of the possibly now-defunct project. Hatton's experience extends to IPs like Bioshock and Borderlands, by the way, and he worked on Agent for one year between June 2009 and 2010. As he says:

"These are samples of the environment artwork I took ownership of during my time on yet to be published game called Agent. Not sure if this project will ever be published but it was first announced by Sony at E3 in 2009. The art team were taken off this project to focus on GTA 5."

Perhaps Rockstar's focus on Grand Theft Auto V caused Agent to slip to the back burner and the game just never got back into the development rotation. If true, as great as GTAV turned out to be, this would be a disappointment. Then again, maybe something else happened to sideline Agent and various team members were then moved to other projects. Who knows?

But as it stands now, Agent could be vaporware.

'V' is the best 'Grand Theft Auto', in my opinion, but as a change of pace, I definitely would have preferred to try 'Agent', of the two. I just hope that it's still coming.

I don't like the series as a whole but I did enjoy V quite a bit. It's actually the only Rockstar completed.

Madness! GTAV was a beast of game. And when it first released, this game kept my PS3 running because it was my only "I must play" after Mass Effect 3 came out.

But I get what you guys are saying.

360 huge fanbase was just too much to ignore in favor of do a ps3 exclusive, hahaha remember when they made a video saying how impressed they were with the power of the PS3 (YouTube this: ''Rockstar Games President Talks PS3 in 2005 '') and they were going to use it to made reality his programmers dreams and visions?, they are hypocrites just like SE but at least Rockstar produce good games.

Now releasing Agent exclusive for the PS4 would be a great move.

Seriously we need Manhunt.

If the artist's art has its ownership returned to him then that says the game is going a different way or it is dead.

Midnight Club! If they get the feel back from MC2, I will cry as I have the GT Sport announcement.

I have fond memories of MC2, but I haven't revisited it like I did MC3. Now I loved MC3, but revisiting it after playing MCLA made MC3 look outdated. I can only imagine how sh*tty MC2 is now. Let's not revisit old game play.
