In recent news, it looks like Rockstar’s next project may be a sequel to the well-received game Bully from back in October 2006. There have been long-circulating rumours about a Bully sequel, and many fans have been dying to get their hands on a follow-up to what was a fantastic game. As it stands Rockstar’s next game for release is Red Dead Redemption 2 which has also been long awaited. However, it seems that Rockstar has been working on the Bully sequel while finishing off RDR2.

 

 

For those who are unaware of what the game Bully is about it is a game that revolves around the life of Jimmy Hopskins who is a student enrolled at Bullworth Academy due to his parents disappearing off on a cruise and leaving him behind. Jimmy is an outsider to all of the cliques within the school and has to find a way to deal with hostility from certain individuals/groups and develop relationships with those who are willing to work with him and in doing so also helps them develop. Ultimately he simply wants to get through school unscathed and with minimal hassle while causing some chaos.

 

Might you be thinking ah just another rumour for a sequel? Well, this looks fairly credible as it comes from a source who claims to be from within Rockstar and this is the same individual who leaked the Red Dead Redemption sequel long before Rockstar made an official announcement. The individual goes by the name of Yan2295. The recent leak about the Bully sequel was posted on a forum and stated that Bully 2 was in fact in development and is anticipated to be the game to follow Red Dead Redemption’s release.

 

 

The parent company of Rockstar Take-Two Interactive filled for various trademark applications a few years ago. These appear to be specifically related to Bully. It is no secret that Co-Founder of Rockstar, Dan Houser of the original Bully game has toyed with the idea of making a Bully sequel, in a 2013 interview with Polygon he stated that he loved Bully and would like to make another. In addition to this, the music composer for the original Bully game (Shaun Lee) also let slip that he would be doing the soundtrack for Bully 2 and in particular specified ‘in the not so distant future’. That was back in 2009, so it is possible that a Bully sequel has been in development or development limbo for awhile now. It is entirely possible it may have even been scraped multiple times which would explain such an extensive delay between games even by Rockstar standards. Rockstar has a history of taking their time with games which, to be honest, is something I am grateful for. An excellent example of this is the time between Red Dead Redemption and its sequel which is planned for release fall of 2017 as well as the typical gap between Grand Theft Auto games. Regardless I know I would certainly prefer for them to take sufficient time to make a great game, rather than rush something mediocre out for the sake of getting it out to people.

 

 

Everything is still theoretical at this stage as Rockstar themselves have yet to make a statement about a Bully sequel, however, given the nature of the source of the leak and their past credibility with leaks we are hopefully the information is correct. Hopefully, within the next year or two, this will all be confirmed or denied for certain.

 

We would love to hear from you in the comment section below. Did any of you play the original Bully game? Have any fond memories of it? Are you convinced by the rumours and would you be interested in a Bully sequel? Don’t forget to share if you enjoyed reading. Have an awesome day!
