February 6, 2007 - Today Rockstar Games announced Manhunt 2 for the PlayStation 2, PSP, and the Wii (!). The newly-formed Rockstar London will be handling the PS2 and PSP versions, while Rockstar Toronto is heading up Wiihunt.
The original Manhunt was the ultra-violent action game that revolved around creative kills such as bashing faces with a crowbar and wire stranglings. The game attracted attention from media watch groups and was fairly well-received by consumers and the press.
"With Manhunt 2 we have tried to create a game that stays close to the original concept of chilling suspense and stealth, whilst pushing the game design and storytelling forward," said Sam Houser, founder and executive producer of Rockstar Games. "We are also excited to have our newest development team, Rockstar London, working on the title alongside our two established UK studios, Rockstar North and Leeds."
