If you've been following this story so far, it shouldn't come as a shock that Take-Two has shelved Manhunt 2
for the moment, while they decide what to do next. The company is considering its options, and still fully supports the game as a 'work of art'
. "Take-Two Interactive Software has temporarily suspended plans to distribute Manhunt 2 for the Wii or PlayStation platforms while it reviews its options with regard to the recent decisions made by the British Board of Film Classification and Entertainment Software Rating Board ... We continue to stand behind this extraordinary game. We believe in freedom of creative expression, as well as responsible marketing, both of which are essential to our business of making great entertainment."
Analysts have already started weighing in, with some seeing this as unfairly targeting the GTA-maker
for previous 'sins'.
