    Rockstar's Dan Houser Hints at a Possible Bully Sequel


    Lots of people loved Jimmy Hopkins, the squinty-eyed protagonist of Rockstar's Bully. The academic open-world title didn't set the kinds of records that a Grand Theft Auto game does but it's remained a favorite in the hearts of many gamers. In an interview with Gamasutra's Chris Morris, Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser teases that a Bully follow-up is one the things that the developer's juggling in its schedule:

    Also, contrary to a lot of people, we like to take a little bit of time at the end of a game before starting a sequel, so we can wait for the excitement or disappointment and everything else of the experience to shake down and really see what we should do in the next game.

    So we knew that we didn't want to start doing the Bully sequel instantly at that second with those guys — even though it is a property that, like Max, we adore and might come back to in the future. There was just no impetus to do that then.

    So we said, "You can do Max, and then we will see what we can do with Bully." So it was really waiting for the slot to open up and the group to open up to at least start work on it.

    So, at the very least, Houser and the Rockstar crew seem to know that players want a return to Bulworth Academy. This is good news. Other tidbits from the interview indicate that there will be DLC for Max Payne 3 and it'll be at least as frequent as what was delivered for Red Dead Redemption. It's a rare thing when either Houser brother gives an interview and there's more fascinating stuff to be learned in the whole piece.
    Bully was amazing so I hope we do end up seeing a sequel.

    I like how Rocktar suddenly picks up sequels to do and ignores The Agent.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I didn't think the first Bully was released in Australia (those damn censors). I can't remember seeing but I do remember a bit of publicity around it. People calling it "inappropriate".

    Screw Agent! Bully 2 is in my top 5 wishlist along with GTA 5,MGS 5, Manhunt 3 and Half-Life 3.

    That's so awesome! I remember sinking so many hours into on the PS2.
    It's amazing how much more fun a game about being a Bully in a school is compared to a gangster.

    I'll have to check the first one out soon, I've heard lots of great things about it but just really never felt like buying it. Well, now seems like a good time then.

    I bought my copy of the game here in Australia and it wasnt hard to get either. It definately wasnt banned, but it may have been a censored version.
    Bully was awesome, bring on the sequel!!!!

    it was a damn fireball for me, i played it 8 hours in a row once lol. i'd love a sequel to play with improved graphics!
    I still play Black Ops because me and brother have 2 PS3's and share a copy of Modern Warfare 3. So that is why I play it sometimes. Thats the *ONLY* time I play Black Ops! When brother is not playing MW3, I am!

    Yeah it was released here mate except it was called Canis Canem Edit, those people just love to bitch.
    It was an excellent game, hopefully there will be a sequel and Dan Houser wasn't just teasing everyone lol.
