While Rockstar Games is hard at work in delivering the studio’s next big game in Red Dead Redemption 2, the project the studio is making after that might just be the long awaited Bully 2!
In a report by RockstarIntel, the site believes that casting calls for Bully 2 are being conducted as we speak, as there are seven casting calls for a “new unannounced video game title with a leading UL games developer, shooting at Pinewood Studios.” The roles being cast are said to be mainly for teenage and young roles, and involve placeholder names for the characters.
Additionally, there’s even a warning and project details that mention “mild violence” and “profanity” will be used in some scenes with a “young performer.”
Adding fuel to the Bully 2 fire is that some casting calls directly mention staff as “College Professors,” and what’s more, the site claims they’ve seen Rockstar Games staff come into engagement with the listings, though the site refrains to share who these people are, or how they’ve obtained the information.
In case you’re too young to remember it, Bully is a Rockstar Vancouver game and was released way back in 2006 originally for the PS2. It got a remaster release for the Xbox 360 and Wii which was called Bully: Scholarship Edition in 2008.
It remains to be seen whether Bully 2 really is in development, or even if it will involve multiplayer in some capacity. But given how successful GTA Online is, it’s almost a certainty Rockstar will include it in some form. Heck, we already know they’re going to try it with Red Dead Online.
We’ve reached out to Rockstar Games and will update the story if and when we get a response.
