Just remembered about Rockstar's "Agent", a PS3-exclusive title developed by Rockstar North that was first announced back at E3 2009 and yet no official trailer or screens have ever been released. The latest rumour is that it has moved to PS4 but there is no official word either way.

Another one from E3 2009 (must have been a bad year), and another Sony exclusive, is 'The Last Guardian' from the developers of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. More of it has been seen than Agent but since the 2011 release date came and went there has been no real movement on a possible release date.

Anybody know any others?

I miss the Agent hype.

I'm pretty sure that game must be dead by now.

It's hard to imagine it having a PS3 launch any more. Guess we'll see whether Rockstar think the idea behind it is good enough to re-develop for PS4.

I'd say Final Fantasy XV (versus XIII) and Kingdom hearts III, must be in some kind of Development hell

Either that or square enix are just lazy and hate money

aGENT has been on the back burner for a while, the idea for it started late into the PS2 cycle actually, then shelved, and then revived by Sony in an agreement and then production slowed down again when it was decided that Grand Theft Auto V would be the focus after Max Payne 3 in 2011.

Oh, here is a game that i forgot about.

Originally announced in 2004 by KOEI as a PS3 exclusive, "Ni-Oh" was a Japanese samurai style game. It was said to be a cross over between Onimusha and Dynasty Warriors style gameplay and it was hyped up quite a bit. Especially after the E3 2005 reveal trailer.

Watch it here- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j14e9zTnVbk

However, despite saying that the game was going to be a PS3 launch game, KOEI never actually released it. They never talked about it much after that until around 2008/9 saying it was still in development. In 2010 they confirmed Team Ninja would be taking over development of the game. And then recently in 2013 they announced the game had been redone from scratch, was currently passed the Alpha stage and we should listen for news on the game announcement soon.

I'm sure all hype for this game is long gone as it's been 9 years since announcement and the game still isn't out. According to Koei Tecmo the game should be out soon?

I'm guessing maybe an announcement at TGS this year? If not then i have no idea when this game will come out.

Well, with it being likely that the PS4 having a great install base advantage, Rockstar North might as well rekindle the project after GTA V.

The GTA series is looking so old and tired and they may well need a break from it.

This is fairly recent but I wonder what's happening with Tekken x Street Fighter?

Latest update from Harada was on twitter in March: "they are changing & considering platform strategy" aka Next-Gen consoles. Hopefully we'll see something at TGS

Prey 2 was announced about seven years ago, but has since been blighted by the same curse its predecessor suffered(Prey took ten years between announcement and release).

Anticipation was quite high for the futuristic bounty hunter scenario, but after a strong showing at e3 2011 the production has hit the buffers and been transferred to a new development team.

All rockstar studios are working on GTA V right now, so i doubt "Agent" has anyone working on it.

There was a game called The Grinder that was supposed to come out on Wii, it was an occult Left 4 Dead type game that by wii standards looked quite good, and had a showing at e3

http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=SxyCT...%3DSxyCTENeznc

But after the flop of Red Steel 2 and the conduit 2 they decided not to release a new shooter on Wii... They said it was coming to PS3/360 but with a top down camera.But nothing came out. Despite this they still have refused to announce that the project is canned.

I was deeply disappointed with GTA IV, not even bothered about GTA V.

I think one of the best recent sandbox games was Just Cause 2. That map was huge.

How would that work with a top down camera?

Agreed. On PC that game was just amazing. Even on Console it was great as well.

I really hope we get a Just Cause 3 or a similar style game from the same devs.

Warrior's Lair originally called Ruin. Seem like a decent dungeon crawler with some mixture of "the mighty quest for epic loot" / Clash of Clans and Diablo. It was going to be cross play/save between PS3 and Vita.

Would love to know what happened to that.

What will be the different about it compared to Street Fighter X Tekken? Gussing that it ill use Tekken's art style and fighting mechanics etc?

I think The Last Guardian & Agent are 2 of the more famous ones, Beyong Good & Evil 2 is another.
