Rumors surrounding the upcoming Bully 2 have been surfacing on the internet for quite some time. People have gone crazy with the speculated sequel of the quite eerie but astounding game from 2006. We have received several leaks surrounding a possible sequel over the last few weeks. These included insider Tom Henderson’s investigation into the matter. While he did state that information surrounding this sequel is a bit blurry, Game Informer‘s Blake Hester noted that more information about the sequel might surface within a couple of weeks. That brings us to today. Recent developments have almost subtly confirmed the existence of Bully 2, which will be official soon.
Hours ago, Rockstar Games updated the logo on their website. The new logo is not any redesign or something we have never seen before. Instead, it is the classic logo Rockstar Games used back in the mid-2000s. Also, interestingly, this was the same logo that they used for E3 in 2005. This information is important because Rockstar revealed the original Bully during this expo.
This development means Rockstar Games might announce a sequel to this game soon enough, probably even before 2021 ends. This perfectly lines up with Game Informer‘s Blake Hester’s speculation surrounding the fact the second story would come “in a week or two”.
Rockstar Games has reportedly canceled Bully 2 several times. However, all these recent developments make it too hard to stick to that news. But, the fact that Rockstar is currently working on Bully 2 might also mean that Grand Theft Auto VI might get further delayed. However, Rockstar is huge enough as a company now. Recently, they even acquired Ruffian Games, a video game developing studio based in Dundee, United Kingdom.
They converted Ruffian Games into Rockstar Dundee and might be working in tandem with other Rockstar studios behind this sequel. Besides this, there are several other studios at Rockstar’s disposal that might be working on Grand Theft Auto VI. However, this can also mean that Bully 2 is spacing the gap between Red Dead Redemption II and Grand Theft Auto VI.
Rockstar is known to avoid big events like The Game Awards and Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). They prefer to keep the attention to themselves when they announce the best games the industry has ever seen. Also, the studio was extremely quiet in The Game Awards this year. All this exactly lines up with the announcement of the upcoming sequel. It is going to be great, and we can’t wait.
