New Bully Trademark Filed by Take-Two
Do you have fond memories about Rockstar’s Bully, the PlayStation 2 game that starred Jimmy Hopkins and his misadventures as a miscreant at Bullworth Academy? Then get ready to let the stink bombs fly once more, because a new Bully game might be on the way.
According to CVG, Take-Two filed a new trademark application at the United States Patent and Trademark Office on July 25, which covers “computer and video game programs and software” and “downloadable digital materials, namely, wallpapers, screensavers, digital music files, and graphics, videos, film, multimedia files, live action programs, motion pictures, and animation in the field of video games and computer games”.
In other words, Rockstar and Take-Two might be working on a follow-up to Bully in the near future.
In this article, Rockstar Vice President Dan Houser hinted that Rockstar Vancouver might work on a Bully game after Max Payne 3. Houser said, “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.”
Of course, we’ll let you know if anything regarding this project starts materializing. Until then, you can dream of dodgeball, skateboards and sweatervests.
