Rockstar North Making PS3 Espionage Exclusive

The studio behind Grand Theft Auto and Manhunt is making Agent just for Sony's console, Sony announced today during the company's E3 media briefing.

A Rockstar press release followed: Rockstar founder Sam Houser described Agent as the "ultimate action game."

According to the game's press release, "Agent takes players on a paranoid journey into the world of counter-intelligence, espionage and political assassinations during the height of the Cold War at the end of the 1970s."

No other details were provided and the only visual released so far is the game's logo.

This follows up on an announcement made a couple of years ago about a coming PS3 Rockstar exclusive. Some had expected that game to be L.A. Noire, but instead it is the previously unheard of Agent.

No release date was provided for the game.
