PS3's The Agency to arrive late next year

Sony MMO needed "a lot of work"

Sony's spy 'em up MMO The Agency 'needed a lot of work' but is now set for the second half of 2011.

That's according to Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley who spoke to Kotaku about Sony's MMO output and some of the delays upcoming titles like The Agency and DC Universe Online have experienced.


According to Kotaku: "Smedley says The Agency, which is now due out in the second half of next year, needed a lot of work, so it was delayed."

"There was a moment in time in our company where we looked at our own stuff with a clear eye and saw we have to do better," Smedley himself said.

"DC Universe was held for a year-and-a-half from when we wanted to launch it and now I'm very happy with it."

We were assured that The Agency was still alive back in April and were treated to some Agency screenshots the next month. The PS3 and PC MMO has been pretty quiet since then though.
