As we reported last week, Manhunt 2 will be released in North America on October 31 following the submission of a modified version of Manhunt 2. What's been cut we don't know...
Speaking of the ESRB's decision to re-rate the title with Mature Rockstar main man Sam Houser said, "Manhunt 2 is important to us, and we're glad it can finally be appreciated as a gaming experience. We love the horror genre. Manhunt 2 is a powerful piece of interactive story telling that is a unique video game experience. We think horror fans will love it."
That's all well and good if you live in the US but what about us? We'd like to play it too.
After continually knocking on Rockstar's front door we were blessed with: "It is very good news that Manhunt 2 has now been rated Mature for North America and will be released October 31. However, we have no updated information on the BBFC status of the game."
We reported back in June that Rockstar would appeal the ban and that the company was quietly confident that the game would be released. Read more about that here while we wait for an update on the game's chance of getting released in Europe.
