Trademark Updates Hint At Possible Agent Announcement For PS4?

It's easy to call Rockstar's long-awaited Agent project "vaporware." After all, we haven't heard any updates on the title for several years.

However, maybe Rockstar is planning to make a new announcement some time soon. This is thanks to a user in the GTA Forums, who brings up a few interesting points.

Firstly, he notes that the trademark image description - with which we've become quite familiar - has actually been changed just slightly. The original description reads:

"The mark consists of the word 'AGENT' with the shape of a handgun comprising the internal section of the letter 'G'.

And the updated description, which was actually re-filed on July 18:

"The mark consists of the word 'AGENT' with the shape of a handgun comprising the internal section of the letter 'G'. The mark appears over a shaded background."

Okay, so maybe that doesn't mean anything. But it's important to realize that the recently filed trademark has until October 15 for an opposition of publication, so maybe the developers will have something to say before that date. Furthermore, the trademark has actually been updated as recently as September 10 for a publication review, so it's not like Rockstar is ignoring its existence. Someone somewhere is still thinking about it...

At this point, it's probably safe to assume that Agent will be a next-gen project, if it eventually arrives.

I assumed something was coming soon since Agent is listed as "Coming Soon" on the Rockstar Social Club website.

I noticed that too, so I hope that they're really still working on this one. Another question now is, will it remain exclusive to the PS3 (or the PS4)?

shame this is not a ps4 launch title.
if theres one thing that will cause lines down the road, round the block, and up the hill, its a exclusive R* game!
plus, if theres one game which will make the system sing, its again a R* game.
no way this is a ps3 game still though.
especially after them just finishing GTAV and having to put up with current gen restrictions.
not to mention ive always said there wont be a next gen version of GTAV because there working on a new IP for next gen.
now looks like agent is going to be revealed soon.
hmmmmmmmmmm..............

Which studio is doing this? R*north? As long as San Diego is making a next gen RDR I can die happy. R* has a lot of studios and they've all been quiet.

As for Agent since we only know the core concept I'll wait til we hear more. It'd be nice if it was ps4 exclusive since Sony's missing the big 3rd party exclusives Microsoft has at the moment. But i doubt if it was multiplat it wouldnt make a big differense due to the 2 consoles being similar.

To the person that says this game will fail, I very much doubt that this is top- notch developers your talking about here.
