Rockstar Games has announced that a sequel to controversial 2003 title Manhunt is on the way - and that a version will be produced for Nintendo Wii.

It will be the debut title from new studio Rockstar London, with help from series creator Rockstar North and Rockstar Leeds. Versions are also planned for PlayStation 2 and PSP, and the game is due out 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 Rockstar founder and series producer Sam Houser.

"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."

The news of a Manhunt sequel is not likely to be well received by many campaigners against violence in videogames, particularly in Britain - where the original game was linked by the media to the murder of teenager Stefan Pakeerah.
