Headhunter Redemption is the sequel to the Dreamcast and PlayStation 2 game Headhunter. Headhunter: Redemption was launched in Europe for the Xbox and PlayStation 2 on October 31, 2003, and was released in North America on September 21, 2004.



Set 20 years after the Bloody Mary Virus (released in the original Headhunter), Jack and his new partner Leeza X find out something is amiss when they try to stop Weapon Smugglers. The pair must face opposition from the Glass Skyscrapers filled and media controlled 'Above' and The Dregs & Criminal Infested colonies of 'Below'. Jack and Leeza must also face their fears as they try to redeem a world from chaos, especially Jack, whose son was taken away by forces from 'Below,' but might still be alive.
