Thought there was a thread for this game already, but a search turned up nothing. I know several here, including myself, are very interested in THe Agency, which is an Action/Spy based MMO. Here are a couple of videos from E3. Cool use of Q-bert and the game just looks like it is going to be fun as hell.

Don't get your hopes up for playing this (not that many did anyway). It's dead. Along with layoffs and the closure for three SOE studios.

As part of a strategic decision to reduce costs and streamline its global workforce, SOE announced today that it will eliminate 205 positions and close its Denver, Seattle and Tucson studios. As part of this restructuring, 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. All possible steps are being taken to ensure team members affected by the transition are treated with appropriate concern.

 

This strategic decision will have no impact on SOE's current portfolio of live games; additionally SOE will transition development efforts for the Denver and Tucson studios' suite of products to its San Diego headquarters. This strategic alignment of development resources better positions SOE to remain a global leader in online gaming and deliver on its promise of creating entertaining games for players of all ages, and servicing the 20 million players that visited SOE servers in just the past year.

 

The layoffs apparently account for 1/3rd of the company.
