Rockstar Games isn't really in attendance for this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo, even though either Microsoft or Sony is likely to have Red Dead Redemption 2 as part of its pre-E3 press conference, to showcase its respective hardware. But that may not be the only Rockstar property that could be making the rounds.
An eagle-eyed user over on NeoGAF has pointed out that the team at Game Informer has created a game listing page for a title called Bully 2: Kevin's Back Jack, listed for release on PlayStation 4 and developed and published by Rockstar Games. It's listed for a fall release, which could very well tide us over until Red Dead 2 arrives early next year.
Now, this is by no means official, but Game Informer did take the listing off its page after the NeoGAF report went up, although a friend was able to nab a screen grab of the information before that was done. (Thanks, Steve!)
What's more interesting about the listing is that it notes that the game supports two players. There's a possibility that we could see some kind of co-op mode incorporated with it, with some kid helping out Kevin with his ne'er-do-well activities.
This isn't the first time we've heard rumors about Rockstar Games working on a Bully sequel. Back in April, a reputable Grand Theft Auto insider noted that the sequel was on the way, saying, "Bully 2 is indeed in development and is supposed to be the next game after RDR2." Only now, with Red Dead delayed, we could very well get Bully 2 first.
The original Bully was quite a hit with fans – and also stirred up some controversy, with Jack Thompson attempting to halt sales of the game due to its "mature" content, a claim that was later dismissed. More than likely, the sequel, if it does exist, will continue Kevin's shenanigans, this time in a new locale. Perhaps he's headed to a private college?
We'll let you know once the game is confirmed (and possibly coming to other platforms, like Xbox One), but, man, oh, man, what we wouldn't give to cause trouble in college.
The original Bully is available now for mobile devices, PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360. You can also get it digitally for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
