Controversy courting game developer Take2 Interactive has delayed the upcoming global release of its pedestrian bashing nasty, Manhunt 2, after the title was banned in the UK last month.

Quoted by Reuters, Take2's press statement read: "We continue to stand behind this ordinary game. We believe in freedom of creative expression, as well as responsible marketing, both of which are essential to our business of making great entertainment."

Manhunt 2 has been rated AO (standing for Adult Only), which many retailers in countries such as the US and many here refuse to sell, and is tied to Take2's subsiduary firm Rockstar London.

Initially expected to be available during July for PS2, PSP and Nintendo Wii game platforms, Manhunt 2 follows the activities of an asylum dweller who gets just one chance to escape from his medieval place of torture and reclaim his life.

As with the game's predecessor, some groups of society seemingly feel the title's extreme and random violence make it unsuitable for release. To make up your own mind, visit rockstargames.com/manhunt2.
