Now that Red Dead Redemption 2 has been released, rumors about other games by Rockstar have surfaced. As always, most of them were about the next installment of Grand Theft Auto, but there are also rumblings that the developer might also work on a sequel to the old PS2 Bully. It seems that they started a few years ago, and here are some of the clues we have so far.
What made us think that the game in the works is Bully?
Well, it looks like Rockstar is casting for actors that would like to work for a “new unannounced video game title with a leading UK games developer, shooting at Pinewood Studios.”
Fans of the classic Bully suspect that the developer will try a sequel or a remaster of the game.
A Young Performer and a Role For a Professor
In the casting, it mentions that: “Mild violence and profanity will be used in scenes with the young performer. The project itself is a thriller/drama, and all scenes with the young performer will be handled with sensitivity.”
It is a young performer, and the fact that there have also been shouts for roles of a professor is also pointing towards this specific game. As with all clues gathered from internet detectives, we should all take these rumors with a pinch of salt.
However, if it turns out to be in the making, we should see a free-roamer like Red Dead Redemption 2. Will we see a new Bully after the one in 2006? Hopefully, it will be funny and bring back great memories.
Remember when parents worried their kids would think bullying was cool as they played the game? Or when the male protagonist had to choose between kissing a boy or a girl? How many people would be triggered in the future if the game is remastered or if Rockstar makes a sequel?
