  1. A Bully 2 absolutely has to be set in the nonspecific past like the first one was. I cannot imagine a scenario where I would ever be interested by modern social media bullying.

    • It would have to be in the past, bullying just isn’t the same anymore unless you’re in an inner-city school.

      They could go as late as the 90s though, before the whole ant-bullying sentiment started the ball rolling socially.

      I’d be down for a game where you need to track down dirt on various homosexuals and fuck with them until they kill themselves. But every time they do the school has a big anti-bullying campaign and the difficulty goes up.

    • Unfortunately if a sequel was made, they probably would make it modern and deal with online/social media/cyber-bullying since that’s the hot new thing about bullying, and R* could get brownie points for.

  2. It’s impossible to make Bully 2. the name alone invalidates it in the modern market. It would be easier to release a manhunt/postal crossover game then Bully 2 right now.

  3. A female Bully game has the potential to be amazing, but this day and age it’s just not possible. R* could tackle the concept of female bullying, where the game isn’t about physical action but social, you don’t fight other girls (unless it’s cornering them in the girl’s bathroom) and you literally cannot fight guys unless you want to get curb stomped. But rather it’s about ruining them socially and doing nasty shit to undermine their life. And for the physical side, if you actually want some muscling done, you need to get a guy to do it for you, like getting a bf or manipulating one to fight for you.

    That’s what it should be, the same subject material but indirect action rather than direct. All manipulation rather than force. Instead though given the current modern political and social climate, and how pozzed R* is now, it would just be a retread of the first with a gender swap

      Imagine the option to act seductively towards a teacher to get a girl in trouble, and then with access to his room leaving racy photos of yourself or other girls in the locker room in his desk, and informing another teacher when he runs out his usefulness or actually tries to make a move on you.

  4. I’d love a Bully game with a female protagonist if it took inspiration from things like Heathers, Mean Girls and Oniisama e… by focusing on the kind of cat fights and brutal girl-on-girl bullying we see in those.

    I don’t know if Rockstar would be willing to make a kino title like that in this day and age though.

  5. No, it would be shit. Jimmy Hopkins is the perfect blueprint for a Bully game protag, so it would have to be him, or another guy with his style.

    • This would be an insta-buy for me.

  6. Yes, because what we need more of is former men telling real men how they should or should not act in a video game or real life setting.
