Bully 2 has been rumored for a while now but Rockstar has not given us any confirmation regarding whether it is indeed working on the game. Some new Bully 2 concept art has been leaked and it might give us a sense of the setting of the game.
We assumed that Hopkins would be coming back as the protagonist in the new game and that he would be much older not but that does not seem to be the case according to the leaked concept art. From what we can see in these drawings, the setting of Bully 2 is pretty much the same. This could mean that we will get a new protagonist this time around.
The leak is pretty old and goes back to 2002, a lot could change between now and then. It is possible that this concept has been scrapped and will not make it to the final product but we have no way of knowing for sure until we get a confirmation from Rockstar. You can check out the concept art of Bully 2 below:
Unreleased and at some point (maybe still) highly confidential Bully concept art from 2002 – 2003.

I think that a new protagonist would make sense. Rockstar is known for creating some great lead characters but the developer has shied away from female protagonists. Bully 2 might change that. I think that is something the fans would love. Look at WWE 2K20 for example. Becky Lynch is on the cover and women are now part of the career mode and fans love it. We might see something similar with Bully 2.
No matter what the case is, Bully is a major game and fans would like to see a sequel. The hype is real this time around and I hope that the game is announced soon if Rockstar is indeed working on one. If not then just put us out of our misery and confirm that it is not in development.
