Rockstar and 2K Games parent company, Take Two Interactive, has renewed its trademark for “Agent”, a game first teased in 2007 for the PlayStation 3 but not named until 2009.
The filing was submitted on July 18th, allowing Take Two to continue using the name across a variety of media.
Announced almost five years ago, Agent was believed to be in development at Rockstar North before falling off the grid. In 2011 the game resurfaced after a cluster of screenshots hit the web. Though not the scoop gamers had been hoping for, the environment shots certainly added veracity to the claim that Agent is set during the Cold War.
It’s uncertain when we’ll hear more on Agent but hopefully it’ll be soon. With Grand Theft Auto V just a couple of months away, Rockstar will no doubt be preparing to unveil its next game.
