Report Says Bully 2 Was Playable But Rockstar Scrapped It

Bully 2 rumours have been swirling around for the best part of a year, with some leaks even supposedly showing off a playable game that was being kept under wraps by Rockstar.

Unfortunately for those hoping for a return to Bullworth Academy, a new report suggests that the game was in development but was scrapped by the developers…and it’s not the first time we’ve heard this.

According to a report from Video Games Chronicle, Rockstar New England had spent over a year working on Bully 2 – even completing a playable build including open-world gameplay.

Bully YouTuber SWEGTA, who claims to know various sources familiar with the project, earlier this year apparently got his hands on some plot details which have also been corroborated by the VGC source.

The plot apparently centred on the first game’s protagonist, Jimmy, and started off at his step-dad’s home during a post-school year summer.

Another VGC source claims that Rockstar New England spent up to 18 months working on Bully 2 at sometime between 2010 and 2013. The small-scale playable build was built using the same engine as GTA 4, GTA 5 and the Red Dead Redemption games.

“It existed, it was playable, it was just a shame it never got off the ground,” the unnamed sources told VGC.

Earlier this summer, a known ResetERA leaker has taken to the web to say that there was going to be a Bully 2 – but not anymore. Similar to the VGC story, this rumour suggested that the project was apparently in development for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The rumour was apparently according to a source who claims to know a former Rockstar New England developer.

Of course, Rockstar Games has not responded to the claims, so whether or not they’re true remains to be seen. It would make a long of sense though, but does it mean Bully 2 will never happen?
