In an interview with Gamasutra, Rockstar Games co-founder and vice president, Dan Houser has hinted that the company might do a Bully sequel sometime in the future.
Houser stated “we knew that we didn’t want to start doing the Bully sequel instantly at that second with those guys — even though it is a property that, like Max, we adore and might come back to in the future. There was just no impetus to do that then. So we said, ‘You can do Max, and then we will see what we can do with Bully.’ So it was really waiting for the slot to open up and the group to open up to at least start work on it.”
Bully was originally released on the PlayStation back in October 2006, being well received by both critics and gamers. It was later released on the Wii and Xbox 360 as Bully: Scholarship Edition in March 2008 with extra content and improved visuals. Much controversy surrounded the original release, which resulted in the title being changed to Canis Canem Edit in the UK and certain other PAL territories.
It would certainly be interesting to see what direction Rockstar would take Bully in next, and how it would look. Would you welcome the arrival of a Bully sequel? Do you have fond memories of the original? Be sure to let us know your thoughts via the comments section below.
