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:
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.
Bully 2 has been rumored for a while but we have not heard anything from Rockstar about the game. That is nothing new. Rockstar is generally pretty secretive about its projects and you never really know what the company is working on. An employee at the company has now mentioned that Rockstar is planning to release Bully 2 during the holidays of 2020.
Interestingly the Xbox Scarlett is coming out during the same time which means that Rockstar is going to release the game on current and next-generation consoles. Current generation console gamers are going to buy the game and so are the people that make the move to the new hardware. So it is a win-win for Rockstar. This is not new, we saw the same thing when the Xbox One came out. GTAV was released on the 360 and the Xbox One.
While leaks can be vague at times, the Rockstar employee left a very specific message for the release of Bully 2. The message is as follows:
They way they are going about this has completely changed. As it stands, they are aiming to release their next-generation game during the holiday season of 2020.
This does make a lot of sense. This explains why we have not got an announcement so far. The timing aligns with the release of the Xbox Scarlett and the PS5. Interestingly 2 sources have the same information so they could be onto something here. YouTuber SWEGTA did not reveal the name of his source at Rockstar, for obvious reasons but from what we have heard, the timing seems right and things do add up.
This is still a leak, so you should take this information with a grain of salt. It is also worth mentioning that this is the current plan. At Rockstar, plans can always change. It will be interesting to see whether we do get a release for Bully 2 in 2020. If the game is planned for the holiday season then we might get an announcement later this year or early 2020.
The same Rockstar employee recently talked about how Rockstar was working on the game but then it was scrapped. Rockstar might be working on it again. Rumors suggest that the upcoming game will be as big as GTAV.
We have been getting rumors about Bully 2 being in development and that it would release before the next Grand Theft Auto game. It seems like those were leaks regarding a canceled project and that after working on Bully 2 for several months the game was canceled. At least that is what a former Rockstar developer would have us believe.
The developer also talked about working on a tripwire prank similar to the early rope in Red Dead Redemption 2. Being able to hide in trashcans and mini-games were also mentioned. Here is what the developer had to say about Bully 2:
Since Rockstar has never officially acknowledged Bully 2 I definitely can’t say one way or another. 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.
While we heard that the new game would take place in high school, the developer mentioned that Bully 2 took place in the Summer so there was no school. Plus the game was set in a nearby town and summer camp. The antagonist of the game was supposed to be Hopkin’s step-sibling. That sounds very interesting indeed.
The developer mentioned that Bully 2 was indeed canceled but he is not completely sure as he is no longer working on the game. Interestingly, while Rockstar itself has never confirmed that it is indeed working on Bully 2, the game has been confirmed by people that worked on it. The composer of Bully’s soundtrack, Shawn Lee, confirmed that he was working on a sequel in 2009.
A lot of time has passed since then and it is possible that the game was canceled but Rockstar decided to start working on it again. So, there is still some hope when it comes to a sequel. We will let you know more about the game so be sure to stay tuned for more news and information.
Bully 2 rumors have been around for a couple of months now. Word has it that Bully 2 is being developed alongside GTA 6 by Rockstar. New details have emerged and it seems that Jimmy Hopkins is going to be a freshman in university this time. The Bully 2 map is supposed to be similar to GTA 5.
We do not know much about the game at this point so take this with a grain of salt. The source mentioned that the map of Bully 2 is going to be pretty big and will include the university, the city and woods.
The report also mentions that cars will be drivable. Hopkins is expected to be older so that does make sense. Cars will be much better than bicycles and I am sure that fans are going to appreciate the upgrade.
Rockstar has not said a word about Bully 2 or GTA 6. So we have no idea whether or not this information is true. GTA 6 is most likely going to be exclusive to Xbox Scarlett and PS5. If Bully 2 is coming next then it might release on the current generation of consoles.
That would make sense. It has been a while since RDR2 was released. Bully 2 could be released in the upcoming months while fans wait for GTA 6 that is not going to release anytime before 2021/2022.
It will be interesting to see what the map of Bully 2 is like and how the game is different from the first one. The original game got a lot of praise and great reviews and we expect nothing less from Bully 2 or any other upcoming Rockstar game.
Bully 2 and GTA 6 are both highly anticipated titles. It will be interesting to see what these games will have to offer and what they are like to play. GTA 5 is getting pretty old now and GTA 6 needs to set the standard for next-generation open world games.
