Pulled Game Informer listing suggests a sequel to Bully

2 min read


Rockstar’s mostly known for Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption these days, but it’s one of their other games that’s nearer and dearer to my heart. Bully, or Canis Canem Edit if you prefer, was a game in the same sort of vein that featured teenage troublemaker Jimmy Hopkins dealing with the trials and tribulations of boarding school life.

There have been calls for a sequel for years, with Rockstar seemingly unwilling to revisit the Bullworth Academy or its characters. A listing, swiftly yanked from Game Informer, suggested that a sequel was imminent.

Bully 2: Kevin’s Back Jack was briefly listed on the game and magazine’s website, with PlayStation 4 as the platform. It was listed for a “Fall” release, which would have put it in the same window as Red Dead Redemption 2 before that game got delayed (to the surprise of nobody). Given Game Informer’s ties to retail arm GameStop, they usually are privy to that sort of information – so there could be some truth to this. That said, GameInformer took to Twitter to disavow any knowledge of an upcoming sequel, saying that the listing was an error. That I t could be, but it seems oddly specific.

Could we see a sequel at some sort of large gaming expo, like the one coming up next week? Let’s hope so.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
