Condemned 2 Team Works with ESRB to Avoid Manhunt 2’s Fate

The Manhunt 2 affair continues to make waves for the video game industry. Or is that a ripple effect? As reported by CVG, the sales-killing result of the Adults Only rating assigned to Manhunt 2 by the ESRB last month has not been lost on Monolith, which is developing the upcoming Condemned 2: Bloodshot. Condemned 2’s senior producer, Constantine Hantzopoulos, told CVG the Manhunt 2 meltdown got his attention:Absolutely it did. And one of the things I want to make clear is that [Condemned 2] does not take place in the real world. This is a fictional universe. That said we’re pretty cognizant of the ESRB and the Manhunt thing.

I worked on [Indigo Prophecy] and had to cut the sex scenes out of the game for the US… It sucked because I don’t believe in that, right. But you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do. We’re working closely with the ESRB to make sure everything goes through okay but there’s stuff we’ve cut already. There were things we were doing that even I couldn’t believe we were going to those places.

An example of what we cut would be putting someone’s head in a vice. That was too much, you know. There are also some decapitations we’ve lost…

Ох, не нравится мне всё это…
