Rockstar Games today announced that ESRB has granted a Mature Rating to a modified version of Manhunt 2.

The modified Manhunt 2 will be released for the PlayStation 2, PSP, and Wii in North America on October 31, 2007 (Halloween). There are no details yet about what have been cut from the game to escape its previous AO rating.

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

Video games rated Mature are for consumers ages 17 and older and are not intended for children. Along with the Mature rating, the ESRB also assigned the following content descriptors to Manhunt 2: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content and Use of Drugs.

Rockstar is currently attempting to overturn the BBFC's (British Board of Film Classification) decision to ban Manhunt 2 in UK through an appeal process, though this is a lengthy process that could delay the game's release considerably.
