Rumor: Former Rockstar Dev Reveals Details on Canceled Bully 2

47

13 years have passed since the release of the game called Bully and since then, fans around the world have been anxiously awaiting for the second chapter of the series: Bully 2.

To date, however, there are no official confirmations about a possible development of the expected sequel but, based on a recent rumor that is going around the web, put around by the Youtuber SWEGTA which came into contact with a Reddit user who he had the opportunity to converse with a former developer of Rockstar Games, Bully 2 was in production a few years ago, but unfortunately at some point the project was canceled.

The developer in question would have worked for Rockstar Games from 2008 to 2009 on an unannounced project (probably Bully 2) under development for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Fired after the title was canceled, he revealed some of the features they were working on for the game.

“Since Rockstar has never officially acknowledged Bully 2 I definitely can’t say one way or another,” the developer said. “I definitely can’t say that I worked on it for several months before the project was canceled, nor could I talk about the pranks or climbing system I definitely wasn’t working on.”

As for the narrative arc of the game, he would talk about Jimmy Hopkins and his summer vacation in his stepfather’s house. Players would be able to explore both a summer camp and a city. The antagonists would have been Jimmy’s new half-brothers.

Although we do not have the assurance that this information is true, there is sufficient evidence to confirm that the developer actually worked for Rockstar Games in the period in which this game was supposedly in the works.

Although this version of Bully 2 in development a decade ago has been canceled, this does not mean that the game is not currently in the works. Indeed, for years now there has been talk of a rumor that would seem to confirm the fact that the title is currently being worked on with GTA 6.

We ask you, however, to take everything we said in this news with a pinch of salt, not being a piece of official information.
