Will Rockstar Games Unveil ‘Agent’ at E3 2016?

Rockstar North has been under the radar for quite some time, normally linked to possible updates tied up with the “GTA” and “Red Dead Redemption” franchises. With E3 2016 fast approaching, it doesn’t look like any major update will be announced for either though new developments.

So with that said, what does Rockstar have for the gaming world instead? Perhaps a recent murmur concerning the company’s alleged patent filing can shed more light on the subject.

According to NeoGAF user GribbleGrunger, Rockstar North has filed for an extension for the “Agent” trademark with the US Patent and Trademark Office. If true, this could hint at the possible debut of the game at E3 2016. One thing going against that belief is that this is not the first time that Rockstar has renewed the trademark patent though anything can happen.

For those who are unfamiliar with the game, “Agent” is a PlayStation 3 exclusive that could make a re-appearance at E3 2016. It is an adventure game which brings players into the world of counter-intelligence, espionage and political assassinations as detailed by Rockstar through an official release.

While it was meant to be a Sony exclusive, Rockstar was contemplating on thinking otherwise. Right now, the real score tied up to it is up in the air.

Last December, former Rockstar artist Darren Charles Hatton claimed that the art team was re-assigned to GTA V, meaning nothing may have transpired in connection with “Agent” to date.

Whether gamers will get to see “Agent” or not at E3 2016 is unknown for now and Rockstar has kept quiet regarding the matter.

Rockstar may have just been ensuring it still holds the rights to the trademark to address legal issues for now. There has been no evidence of the game getting revived, but Rockstar has not come out and said that it has been cancelled yet.
