Is there a Bully sequel? Rockstar renewing Trademark and Job Hiring give some teasers.
Rockstar has been caught in rumors lately after the re-releasing of Midnight Club Los Angeles. Once more, the game company found itself in the trend trap. As Bully fans highlight Rockstar’s renewed trademark and staff hiring, the speculation of them making a sequel escalates. Bully fans have been waiting for so long, much longer than Grand Theft Auto 6 fanbase.
Bully’s success in its first release
The sequel, Bully, invaded the game marketplace in 2006 along with PlayStation 2’s release. A decade and three years after, Rockstar made an updated version of the game for mobile devices. Afterward, a sequel development arose in 2010 but did not make it to the count despite the success of the pioneering title. Ever since that, Bully never retook the spotlight until now.
When it was first released, Bully received a huge commercial and critical success. It has two re-releases, but that was it. The sequel was first canceled in 2013 and again in 2017 when new rumors invaded the internet. Rockstar said that the reason behind these cancellations is to focus on GTA 6 and Red Dead Redemption 2.
Bully Speculations: Is it Possible?
It has been a long time, but Bully fans are still anticipating it. Now that these rumors are prevailing, eagle-eyed fans spotted the possibilities of the new Bully sequel. Fans were in an uproar when Trademark updated thrice in the last 24 hours something related to the title.
However, these innocuous speculations are assumptions. The renewal of trademarks or precautionary maneuvers is typical in-game companies. It is included in the standards to ensure control over established rights to allow them to continue. The renewal is required following registered trademarks’ rules.
In addition, while Rockstar has not released any statements, it is most likely that in their defense, the job listings are for the new game testers they are planning to release soon. Still suspicious, what are these new games? Fans are expecting that a Bully sequel could be one. Fans are still finding the connection between the two suspicious happenings.
Apart from the Bully speculations, Rockstar has been working on Grand Theft Auto Online and GTA 5’s next-gen. To add, Red Dead Redemption 2 is almost on its third anniversary. Rockstar was so busy prioritizing these games; thus, it is most likely that the game studio has been working on other games, especially that these games demand much time for completion. For example, Red Dead Redemption 2 took eight years in development. While the possibilities are slight, it can still happen unless Rockstar officially announces their side.
FOr the third time, fans are anticipating for a Bully sequel. The first two were canceled to prioritize their other games. Until Rockstar confirms their actions, which they are not known for, unfortunately, fans can just hope. While waiting, play Rockstar games like Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto V.
