Manhunt 2 gets US go ahead

Rated and dated.

Rockstar has announced that Manhunt 2 has finally been given a M rating in the US, clearing the way for an October release, GamesIndustry.biz reports.

The ESRB has re-rated the game following Rockstar's submission of a modified version of the original product, which in June was branded with an Adults Only stamp.

"Manhunt 2 is important to us, and we're glad it can finally be appreciated as a gaming experience," said Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar Games.

"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."

After the game was given the AO rating in the US, Nintendo and Sony both refused to let the game appear on their consoles.

The game will now appear on October 31 in North America.

Manhunt 2 was also effectively banned in the UK by the BBFC after it refused to allow the game to go on sale.
