Manhunt 2’s Release Officially Suspended

Because of the small furor it seems to have caused recently, with everything from banning, high ratings and outright refusals to release affecting the game, Rockstar and Take Two have announced they will be officially suspending the release of Manhunt 2 and it will no longer be hitting stores (well at least the counties that have not banned it) on its previously announced mid July release date.

In the statement the publisher reveals that, it has “temporarily suspended plans to distribute Manhunt 2 for the Wii or PlayStation platforms” and they plan to review their “options with regard to the recent decisions made by the BBFC and ESRB“. Finally they pledge that they will “continue to stand behind this extraordinary game“, which seems to hint that they will try not completely strip the game down in order to let it be released with an 18 certificate.
