NEW YORK, NY – May 16th, 2002– Rockstar
Games, Take-Two Interactive Software Inc.’s high-end videogame publishing
division, announced today that Midnight Club 2, the sequel to the highly
successful award winning PlayStation 2 launch title Midnight Club, is in
production for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system.

“Midnight Club turned a lot of heads at the
launch of the PlayStation 2 with its frantic gameplay, open plan racing and
unique attitude,” said Dan Houser, Creative Director of Rockstar Games. “With
Midnight Club 2, we’re pushing the boundaries even further by adding more

About Midnight Club 2

The original Midnight Club qualified
immediately for SCEA’s “Greatest Hits” with its impressive sales record.
Building on this solid foundation, Midnight Club 2 expands the cityscape with
new modes of transportation, incredibly realistic AI and an energetic, stylistic
atmosphere all its own. You are an elite, next generation illegal street racer,
more dangerous and skilled than ever racing throughout the cities of Paris, Los
Angeles, and Tokyo. Each location boasts open-ended routes, loads of shortcuts
and massive jumps. Filled with pedestrians and passersby, vehicles backing out
of driveways, benches, lights, parking meters, trash, and other municipal
properties, these living cities will require complete concentration and deft
driving skills. Midnight Club 2 isn’t just a game, it’s a way of life.
