Sony announced on stage during E3 2009, Agent remains a project shrouded in mystery, so much so that we are starting to doubt its existence. Despite everything, Take-Two has just renewed the trademark rights to the brand for the United States.
Originally featured in E3 2009, the title of Agent of Rockstar Games is one of the biggest mysteries in this industry, and even after seven years, we know nothing about it, not even the development of the game.
However, Take-Two, the owner of Rockstar, continues to renew the license for the Agent’s name and logo, to ensure the rights to use it in media such as video games.
Agent has been renewed under the label of a new application on December 5, 2016, so as to prolong the trademark rights for the next three and a half years. As you can see in the image above, the registration was made by the American authority USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office).
North American law says the license must be renewed every six months, up to a maximum of five times, something Take-Two did. However, since they did not release any product with this name, the license expired with no possibility to be renewed. Still, Take-Two did not let it die.
Evidently Take-Two has no plans to abandon the “Agent” brand: we hope that we will finally know some official news on the project in the coming weeks.
