Agent and Max Payne 3 Still MIA

Agent and Max Payne 3 Still MIA

Don't go holding your breath for Max Payne 3 or Rockstar's Agent anytime soon.

With the completion of Duke Nukem Forever, gamers everywhere are going to need a new "King of Vaporware" to joke about. Alan Wake came out last year, L.A. Noire just did the same, and Diablo III hasn't been in the public eye long enough to have quite the same kick.

Don't give up hope, though! Still in the running is Rockstar North's PS3 spy game Agent, which was first mentioned way back in 2007. In a Take-Two investor call today, the publisher refused to say anything about the title beyond that it was still "in development." So, it's unlikely that we'll see anything new about it at this year's E3, at the very least.

Similarly "in development," according to the call, was Max Payne 3. This game isn't nearly as bad off as Agent - it was only announced back in 2009, and we've actually seen some screenshots since then. But as with Agent, we have no word on when we'll ever see Max Payne in action again - or even a target window.

Still, even the four-year-wait of Agent feels minuscule next to the seven-ish years of L.A. Noire - let alone the fourteen years of Duke Nukem Forever. It could be worse, too: At least we know that the titles are actually being developed unlike some other games I could name. Some other games that start with an "H."

And that end with an "alf-Life 2: Episode 3."

I'm still waiting for Star Wars Battlefront 3...

I am also waiting for the game mentioned above, which by the way... ISN'T EVEN A FULL GAME!

Now that I think about it I haven't heard anything about Beyond Good and Evil 2 since that teaser trailer posted in '08...

oh Diablo III is coming, Blizzard just take their time with the development to poolish their games.

Episode 3 is definitely my choice, it's not even a full game.

Star Wars Battlefront 3 is a good one.

Alf-Life 2? :O Where is Alf-Life 1?


OT: I'm not really on the edge of my seat about Max Payne 3, and I actually never heard of Agent. I just played the first 2 Max Paynes a year ago and I was like "Ehh, they making a new one? Sure, I'll rent it.

Oh, I know, how about "I am Alive"?

That should work for now.

Anyway, kind of sad there's no new info on Agent. Really interested in what that is for some reason.

I dont really know that much about Agent, but from the little that I heard, I hope it still exists.

Waiting on all these sequels is a real Payne.

*smacks Hank across the nose with a rolled-up newspaper* No! You're bad and you should feel bad!

A new king of Vaporware? How about a queen? By my count, Starcraft: Ghost has been in development for 9 years, with nothing to show for it.

It's been canned for years now.

Was it actually officially canned or did Blizzard just stop talking about it?

Pretty sure it's officially on "indefinite hiatus" which means that nobody's actually working on it and they wrapped Nova's story into a novel and SC2.

Let's be honest, no matter how long these games take, they will be awesome because Rockstar is making them. I think they are worth the wait.

Half Life 2: Episode 3 and Beyond Good and Evil 2 are the new King and Queen of Vaporware, methinks.

This is true. Tragic, yet true.

Anyways,

There's still things to choose from.

Agent what and Max who?

So the news is that there's no news to report on these?
Thanks.
