Rockstar Toronto Developing for Wii

Take-Two Interactive Software issued a press release only nine minutes prior to this news going up. Rockstar Games, the GTA developer, has just announced Manhunt 2. It will be coming out on multiple platforms, one of which is the Nintendo Wii. Here is the press release:
"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."
So will Rockstar Toronto be the go-to guys for Wii development under the Rockstar Games label just as Rockstar Leeds has been for PSP development? And will we someday see a GTA game on the Wii? This is the first step. We shall see. Stay tuned.
