Take-Two: Agent is ‘about espionage’ in the 1970s

Take-Two’s Ben Feder has divulged a few juicy tidbits on upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive Agent, revealing that the game will be set in the 1970s and focus on espionage as opposed to the urban exploits seen in Grand Theft Auto.

Speaking to Eurogamer on the similarities between Agent and Rockstar’s crime behemoth, Feder stated, “It’s a completely different storyline, there is completely different character development.”

“It’s a game about espionage, set in the 1970s. GTA is obviously more about an urban experience, a typically rags to riches experience. Very, very different storylines, very different character development. It’s going to be very fresh for gamers.”

Elsewhere, he refused to budge on the matter of the game’s PS3 exclusivity, insisting the company won’t disclose any further information beyond what has already been said.

“These are all relationship matters and contractual matters,” said Feder. “When we talk about our relationships and our exclusivity for PS3 and Agent, for example, we don’t disclose anything beyond what we’ve already said.”

“But we think it’s important for us to be with Sony, and it’s important for Sony, I think, to be with us. The game promises to be one of the best games available because of who’s developing it, and because of the subject matter.”
