Take Two has “temporarily suspended” Manhunt 2 in response to the game’s ban in the UK and AO rating here in the U.S. The game was supposed to come out on July 10, but its publisher had to shelve it in order to “review its options.”
While I’m personally opposed to games that feature such wanton violence—oh, excuse me, art—I definitely feel for the developers in this case. But there’s no way that Take Two would release an AO game since an AO rating basically means it’s pornography.
