You can stop sacrificing goats to Satan: Manhunt 2 gets a release date!

After being picked apart by the ESRB and having us ponder if it would ever see the light of day at all, Manhunt 2 has finally been given an M rating, the green light — and a Halloween release date! Rockstar couldn’t be more proud:

“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.”

While this is great news for those of us who have been salivating at the chance to finally put the Wiimote through its paces, I just hope that Rockstar’s edits to appease the ESRB hasn’t turned this into an entirely different game altogether.
