Rumours of a sequel to Rockstar’s 2006 fan-favourite Bully have once again surfaced thanks to a Twitter thread from industry insider Tom Henderson.
Henderson posted to Twitter this morning to state that “Bully 2” was supposedly slated for a surprise reveal at last week’s The Game Awards, following up with the claim that some people had even seen a demo of the game in action and in a playable state:
Some people saw a "Playable version" just a couple of weeks prior to TGA (not the canned version).
Like I said – Information is blurry atm. But I thought it was worth reporting on as there's something definitely "going on" to do with the series.
VGC reports that Game Informer’s associate editor Blake Hester also tweeted something that would potentially corroborate Henderson’s claims, posting the Bully logo along with the words “New story coming 2 you soon”. Hester’s Twitter account has since been switched to “protected”.
It’s far from the first time we’ve heard rumours about a new Bully game, with the project seemingly starting and being scrapped multiple times in the last 15-odd years. Take this with a hefty grain of salt though, until we hear it from Rockstar themselves.
