Video games website Polygon might have accidentally leaked news of an upcoming Bully 2 announcement by accidentally forgetting to change an article's URL.
It's been a long 13 years since the original Bully came out, and fans have been eagerly waiting for any scrap of news on a sequel ever since.
Prayers could be answered soon though, according to video games website Polygon, who may have just accidentally leaked the time frame for an upcoming Bully 2 announcement.
Polygon may have accidentally leaked Bully 2
In an article titled 'Bully fans think they’ve found secret news of a sequel' where Polygon talked about the recent sequel tease in GTA Online, the site accidentally left in a massive piece of information regarding the game's potential future announcement.
Instead of the URL relating to the title of the piece, it reads "bully-sequel-announced-fall-2020-news-embargoed-do-not-publish" - a huge oversight if it's not a troll.
If Polygon did accidentally just leak Bully 2's announcement time frame, fans will be waiting until Fall 2020 to hear any official news on the sequel. It's a long time to wait, but if true, it'll no doubt be worth it.
Rumors and previous 'leaks' hint at the game being set at Jimmy’s step-dad's house instead of at Bullworth Academy, while also interacting with the nearby town and summer camp - similar to the original game.
Is the leak real?
Developer Rockstar Games has admitted to wanting to make Bully 2 in the past, but instead focused on working on Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2.
Now that they're both out of the way, the idea of the company developing the sequel isn't so far-fetched and could mean that Polygon's leak is actually true.
As with all rumors and leaks, take it with a grain of salt as nothing is ever concrete until an official source comments on it.
We'll keep you updated with any further Bully 2 developments as they happen.

The article’s author, Owen S. Good, commented further on his choice for the URL, stating: “Well, I am dining on one tasty plate of crow right now. That was a joke/troll URL. Yes it was a dumb idea. I was the only one involved in its creation (i.e. nobody else here laughed and said go for it). We’re changing it. Oh hell yeah I regret this. Not worth it and won’t do it again.”
