"While the team can't divulge too many details just yet about how exactly the Facebook-flavored counterpart of The Agency will tie back into the console and PC MMO still on the way," Mashable explains. "You should expect the advancements and achievements you make in Covert Ops to benefit your gameplay in the action title and vice versa."

The PlayStation 3 version of the game is still in development, but no new information is available about its release date or status.
