Hope remains for Bully 2 as Take-Two files new trademark

Publish date:

Take-Two has filed a new trademark protecting its popular Bully IP.

At MCV we get asked about Bully 2 a lot. We wish we could tell you that Bully 2 is in the works but, alas, Take-Two are the only ones who know the real situation.

Still, this new trademark means at the very least the publisher has plans to milk the original game. And who knows, it just might be possible that Rockstar is planning a Bully sequel for its post-GTA V entry into the world of next-gen gaming?

(Although Red Dead is arguably a safer bet.)

Bully first emerged as a PS2 title in 2006, although it was given a new name – Canis Canem Edit – for the UK following negative publicity and accusations that it would inspire a new generation of playground torture.

An updated version of the game was released on Xbox 360, Wii and PC in 2008.

In 2011 Rockstar VP Dan Houser said that a Bully sequel was an idea the studio hadn't forgotten and that it was simply having trouble finding the time. The studio reiterated this a year later.
