Target removing Manhunt 2 from its stores?

targetlogoEvil Avatar is reporting that local Target stores have been pulling Manhunt 2 off their store shelves in response to the recent events where some hackers uncovered adult content within the game.

Even though the ESRB themselves remained firm with the game’s M rating, it looks like Target is taking no chances and is removing the game from its stores.

According to the source, all Target managers are required to stop selling the game, including refusing shipments of the game for all systems. Also Take-Two agreed to take back all unopened copies of the game.

The reasoning is not necessarily about the horrific violence contained within the game, but for the media’s extra attention on Manhunt 2.

To add some more credit, the listing for Manhunt 2 on Target’s website states that the game is not available in stores but remains available online.

If a helpful reader decides to take a trip to a local Target, can you see if they’re selling any copies of Manhunt 2?
