Take Two Working on Wii!
This may not sound like big news, but this is big news! Take Two is the publisher of a little game series called Grand Theft Auto (GTA), and today they announced they are bringing Manhunt 2 to the Wii, PS2, and PSP. Here’s the press release:
New York, NY – February 6, 2007 – Rockstar Games, the world-renowned publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce Manhunt 2 for the PlayStation 2 system, PSP system, and Nintendo’s Wii™. Manhunt 2 is the debut title from the newly formed Rockstar London studio, which is developing the game in conjunction with series creator Rockstar North. The Wii™ version is being developed by Rockstar Toronto. Manhunt 2 will be available this summer.
“With Manhunt 2 we have tried to create a game that stays close to the original concept of chilling suspense and stealth, whilst pushing the game design and storytelling forward,” said Sam Houser, founder and executive producer of Rockstar Games. “We are also excited to have our newest development team, Rockstar London, working on the title alongside our two established UK studios, Rockstar North and Leeds.”
Even though they didn’t announce GTA for Wii, it’s now just a matter of time. Since T2 is bringing a game like Manhunt 2 to Wii, there’s no doubt in my mind that we’ll see the next GTA on Wii.
