Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number will release on March 10 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PC, Mac, and Linux, Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital have announced.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is the brutal conclusion to the Hotline Miami saga, set against a backdrop of escalating violence and retribution over spilled blood in the original game.

Follow the paths of several distinct factions – each with their own questionable methods and uncertain motivations – as unforeseen consequences intersect and reality once again slips back into a brilliant haze of neon and bloodshed.

A short sex scene saw Hotline Miami 2 refused classification in Australia, but Dennaton and Devolver said the Classification Board had misrepresented the scene in its ruling.

“We are concerned and disappointed that a board of professionals tasked with evaluating and judging games fairly and honestly would stretch the facts to such a degree and issue a report that describes specific thrusting actions that are not simply present in the sequence in question and incorrectly portrays what was presented to them for review,” said the companies.

The game’s lead designer Jonatan Söderström later told Australians to get their hands on the game any way they could.

"If it ends up not being release in Australia, just pirate it after release. No need to send us any money, just enjoy the game!" he said.
