'The Agency'

Sad times, MMO fans. Along with confirming layoffs at Sony Online Entertainment, the company has stated that it is no longer developing spy-based MMO The Agency.

Here's the statement:

"SOE is discontinuing production of The Agency so it can focus development resources on delivering two new MMOs based on its renowned PlanetSide and EverQuest properties, while also maintaining its current portfolio of online games."

The Agency was originally announced way back in 2007, and has seemingly gone through several focus changes in the ensuing four years. I saw a lengthy demo of The Agency back in 2009, and I was really impressed with it. The combination of a light-hearted look and tone, action-gameplay, espionage-setting with MMO elements seemed like a sure-winner idea to me.  Instead of a new MMO, all I have left of The Agency are tantalizing possibilities and a dope-ass leather organizer SOE sent me that I still use every day.
