To avoid the Manhunt 2-ban fiasco with Sega's upcoming action title Madworld, reports are stating that the company is in full cooperation with the BBFC and PEGI British ratings board to assure their title's availability. Sega executive David Corless said in the report:

"Yes, [Madworld's] violent. We don’t try to hide that, but as publishers, we see it as a fantasy game - it’s fantasy violence. It’s over the top. It’s cartoony. We also take the violence very seriously. We are working with the age rating boards, with PEGI and with BBFC. We’re not at the end of the game’s development, but we’re working with them now to make sure that we don’t go over the top. The game has been banned in Germany; there’s no getting around that unfortunately. But we are taking it seriously and we’re going to make sure that this game is rated for the appropriate audience."

The BBFC was the organization that granted the ban on Manhunt 2 last year due to its extremely graphic nature. Madworld, developed by PlatinumGames, is scheduled to be released during the first quarter of 2009 for the Nintendo Wii.
