Rockstar’s official agent website disappears

With each passing year, the light that was once a rock star agent dims. Today, agent watchers have noticed that Rockstar appears to have abolished its long-standing agent website. The URL now redirects visitors directly to the Rockstar home page.

The agent was announced at E3 2009 and was marketed as a Cold War spy thriller. Rockstar maintained a simple Agent Teaser website that contained only a brief description of the game’s Cold War era settings.

Along with that website, the agent has been removed from the Rockstar Games section. Indeed, agents seem to be officially almost gone on rock stars.

Over the years there have been small updates regarding the whereabouts of agents, but nothing substantive has appeared. Despite the silence, Rockstar retained the agent’s trademark until 2018, when it was revealed that the trademark had been abandoned.

Rockstar North has been officially announced as the developer of the Agent. In addition to the Cold War setting of the 1970s, Rockstar officially described the agent as “a delusional journey into the world of counterintelligence, espionage, and political assassination.”

Instead, all eyes are looking at the next move of the rock star. The studio has officially announced that the next generation PlayStation 5 version of Grand Theft Auto 5 will be available in 2022. Certainly, Grand Theft Auto Remastered Trilogy also seems to be in progress. Now, what if you could find out what was happening in Grand Theft Auto 6?
