One of the biggest announcements of E3 2009 so far was news that Rockstar is working on an exclusive new IP for the PlayStation 3. Agent is set during the height of the Cold War at the end of the 1970s, and will take players into a world of counter-intelligence, espionage and political assassinations.

"We have always enjoyed making action games, and with Agent we are making what we believe will be the ultimate action game," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "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."

No release date or in-game media has been revealed.
