Houser: Agent will be the ‘ultimate action game’

Rockstar Games founder Sam Houser has described the company’s forthcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive title Agent as ‘the ultimate action game.’

The title was confirmed as an exclusive to Sony’s console during the format holder’s E3 press conference yesterday morning — and according to Houser, Rockstar has high ambitions for the project.

“We have always enjoyed making action games, and with Agent we are making what we believe will be the ultimate action game,” he said in a statement.
 
“Agent is a game we have wanted to make for a long time. The team in Edinburgh is doing an amazing job combining intense action, atmosphere and story in a great period setting to create something that feels quite unique."
 
“We cannot wait for people to experience this game,” added Houser.

Agent takes place during the Cold War-fuelled 1970s, guiding players on a ‘paranoid journey into the world of counter-intelligence, espionage and political assassinations.’ A release date has yet to be announced.
