While the last we’ve seen of Rockstar Games’ Bully property was back in 2008, it looks like Rockstar isn’t ready to abandon the IP just, as the Bully trademark has been updated multitple times in a single day.
The filing can be checked at the USPTO (United States Patent & Trademark Office), though this is no guarantee that the franchise is being worked on. It could simply mean Rockstar Games is making sure the trademark is up to date, y’know, for any potential games and such. That said, given Rockstar’s history of game releases, I wouldn’t count on Bully being this year’s big release from the studio, not unless they’re not going to release Grand Theft Auto VI, which seems improbable.
The last time Bully was released officially, it was back in 2008 for the Xbox 360 and Wii for the Bully: Scholarship Edition.
Will we finally see Bully rear its head in the future? For fans sake that have been teased countless times over, I sure hope so.
