Manhunt 3 Canceled Before It Even Gets Started

GFB writes: "After speculation about a possible sequel coming out for the Manhunt series, it appears that we have good news and some absolutely heart-breaking news for fans of the series. While Manhunt 3 ideas were being kicked around and going as far as story concepts and art, it appears that Take Two has said no."

Its understandable as to why it was turned down, they didnt have an easy time releasing manhunt 2 everywhere. Still, I would like to see a current gen manhunt game, as I actually enjoyed the series a bit. Its a grimy game full of atmosphere and tension made by our friends at rockstar north so its almost impossible not to like to me.

Still a bloody downer. Figured it was a long shot, but hate hearing it's dead.

The protesters managed to actually kill a game off. Damn they won!

the game could have been amazing, its too bad parents think that people were not murdering other people before the previous two games were released

oh well, Splatterhouse should ease my fix for blood and gore without the moral and ethical issues

I can imagine a lot of people protesting about this game, none of whom probably have any concept of gaming. The first manhunt was not the reason for the killing of someone. The guy who did it was obviously a nutter with some seriously mental health issues. Manhunt may have inspired him, but if it wasn't a game it would have been something else like a film or book that gave him ideas. Scapegoating at its finest.

rockstar does not want to waste money on a next gen (ie. more realistic) manhunt that will have a very difficult time not getting an instant refusal and be banned everywhere. manhunt 2 was a different story- with its older engine, and presumably low dev costs (coming late in the ps2s life, and being no where as large as any of the grand theft autos)

Manhunt was a great game. Sequel - not as good as first one, but still worth playing. But maybe it will just get rescheduled :)

Come the F On Take 2. This would sell on the PS3. The Move is super accurate and it wouldn't catch the flak that the Wii did considering most core gamers and casual gamers feel the PS3 gamer is older than the Wii oner (accurate or not).

I was pumped about this one. Epic Letdown
