Rockstar Abandons Trademark For Playstation-exclusive Agent

Rockstar Abandons Trademark For PlayStation-Exclusive Agent

Rockstar appears to have given up on a stealth action game it announced over a decade ago. Agent was initially announced as a PlayStation 3 exclusive but it never really materialized in all those years. The PlayStation 4 eventually came out and there was no word on Agent’s future. Now there is, Rockstar has abandoned its trademark on the game.

With Rockstar letting the trademark for this game go, it seems that the publisher no longer wants to hold on to this brand even for use at some point in the future. It’s pretty much a solid confirmation that it gave up on the project first announced for the PlayStation 3 a long time ago.

Fortnite For Android Could Be A Temporary Galaxy Note 9 Exclusive

Fortnite For Android Could Be A Temporary Galaxy Note 9 Exclusive

Last we heard, Epic did state that Fortnite Battle Royale would be launching for Android this summer but until now, no specific dates have been mentioned. However thanks to a report from 9to5Google, it seems that we might have a better idea because according to their sources, Fortnite could be a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 exclusive.

However note that this won't be a permanent exclusive, but rather it will be a 30-day exclusive which presumably was created to celebrate the launch of the phone. This also gives us a better idea as to when we might be able to expect the game. The Note 9 has been confirmed for a launch on the 9th of August and based on estimates, it could be released on the 24th of August.

Playstation-exclusive Yakuza Series Could Be Released For Xbox One

PlayStation-Exclusive Yakuza Series Could Be Released For Xbox One

The Yakuza series of titles have largely been exclusive to the PlayStation platform. The most recent titles have only been released for the PlayStation 4 but the developer isn’t against the idea of expanding the franchise to Sony’s biggest rival. Producer Daisuke Sato has mentioned that the developers will consider porting the Yakuza series over to the Xbox One if there’s enough demand for it.

Yakuza 1 & 2 HD were released for the Nintendo Wii U but they were a “major failure,” according to Sato. He says that the developers are always willing to support multiplatform availability of this franchise as much as possible but he’s convinced that Nintendo’s not the right platform for the franchise.
