Rockstar Games has announced that the PC and Xbox versions of Manhunt, which was released for the PlayStation 2 in November last year, have shipped to stores in North America today and will arrive in Europe on April 23. Developed by Rockstar North, the same team behind the popular Grand Theft Auto series, Manhunt is a violent stealth-based action game in which players assume the role of a death row inmate forced to fight for his life in a deadly game show.
"We are extremely excited for PC and Xbox gamers to finally experience Rockstar North's latest success," said Sam Houser, president of Rockstar Games. "Manhunt takes stealth gameplay beyond what anyone has ever seen, and we are extremely proud to bring this superb game to a new audience."
"In addition to reaching new heights with outstanding graphic and audio achievements, we wanted to make Manhunt the ultimate stealth-action game," added Leslie Benzies, president of Rockstar North. "By turning the tables on the player, stripping them of power, and making them fight for their lives with inventive play mechanics, we have succeeded in making Manhunt like nothing else out there."
