Now this is interesting. Take-Two, the house of Grand Theft Auto as well as the short-lived and highly controversial stealth horror series Manhunt has filed a dispute over the domain name valiant-ent.tv.
The domain was used as a fake snuff site to promote the Manhunt series. Since the series has been dead for some time, a fan decided to take the domain and use it as a petition to get Manhunt 3. Now, Take-Two wants it back.
Why would the publisher go after a domain that no longer serves a purpose and hasn’t been used in years?
I’d like to think it’s because the series will see its tenth anniversary on November 18, and Take-Two wants to use that special date to announce Manhunt 3.
Though, realistically, I really don’t see that happening.
What about you — would you like to see another Manhunt game, even though there’s really no chance it’ll come from Rockstar?
