Take-Two Apparently Says "No" To Third Manhunt
Considering the huge media circus that would surround another Manhunt title, it probably makes sense that Take-Two is reluctant to announce a third installment.
Although early rumors said ideas and concepts for Manhunt 3 were being considered, it seems like Take-Two doesn't want to do another game. Either that, or they're just keeping it quiet for now; according to Go Fanboy, the current answer is "no." This quells whispers that Rockstar was planning to have the new title support motion sensing with the PlayStation Move, and that it might be exclusive to the PS3. Maybe that somehow got leaked to the wrong group of people - the same group that probably worship at Jack Thompson's bedside - and the idea of sawing someone's head off with the Move controller struck a chord. Either that, or the internal designers had the same feeling and decided to nix the plan. Manhunt has always been a series that pushes the limits of violence and brutality; there are still certain places on this earth where Manhunt 2 is most definitely unwelcome. And lest we forget, game makers are in this biz to make money, so it'd be tough to do that if retailers refuse to sell it.
But anyway, the bottom line is that until Take-Two changes its mind, Manhunt 3 is either on indefinite hold or has simply been discarded. Would you respond to another title...? Or do you just not care?
