Manhunt 2 secures Halloween UK release

Controversial Rockstar title dated for late October

Rockstar has told CVG that Manhunt 2 will be released in the UK on October 31.


Confirming an earlier IGN report, a company rep told us that the game, which was originally refused a rating last year by the British Board of Film Classification for its "unremitting bleakness and callousness of tone", will be hitting stores on the last day of the month.

So, come Halloween, a full year after the game was released in the States, UK Wii, PS2 and PSP owners will finally be able to make up their own minds if Manhunt 2 was worth all the fuss.

But have UK punters grown tired of waiting for a game which has had to be heavily modified to secure a release? And might it have sold more had it been released last year when it was hitting the headlines, albeit for all the wrong reasons?
