While not as controversial as the media made it out to be, the original Bully was a different look at open world gaming from the guys who brought you the Grand Theft Auto series. Even though many news outlets condemned the game for being a "bully simulator," it turned out that the main focus of the game was fighting back AGAINST the bullies. Even so, it turned out to be an enormously fun game, allowing the player to experience a setting brand new to sandbox games. As a logical step forward, it was only a matter of time before a sequel was announced.
While interviewing Shawn Lee, the man who composed the music for the original Bully, the folks over at TheGamingLiberty were treated to an unofficial tip that there is a sequel in the works.
"It looks like I will be doing the soundtrack for Bully 2 in the not so distant future..."
The question still remains though... What kind of setting would they use for a sequel? Going back to a high school would make the game too similar to the previous one, and knowing Rockstar, they'll be sure to stir up some controversy with their choice. The only logical step forward though, would be to follow Jimmy through his university or college years, and frankly, would make for one very interesting game. Drinking? Sex? Roommates to torture? Knowing Rockstar, this wouldn't surprise me in the least.
What did you think about the first game? Is there a different setting you'd like them to explore in the sequel?
