A new video from YouTuber SWETGA claims the next game in Rockstar’s Bully franchise will be coming out in 2020.
The first Bully game was originally released over a decade ago but dedicated fans haven’t forgotten about the title and are patiently waiting for a sequel.
Bully fans have had to wait even longer than Red Dead fans did. Red Dead Redemption was released in 2010 and the sequel in 2018, while Bully originally came out in 2006, which would make it 14 years in between games if SWETGA’s leak is legit.
The YouTuber said he has been in contact with an “Anonymous Rockstar Games insider”, who was the source of the latest Bully 2 leak.
“The way they (Rockstar) are going about this has completely changed,” SWETGA quoted his source as saying. “As it stands they are aiming to release their next game during the holiday season in 2020 (most likely October or November.)”
SWETGA’s video also claimed that Rockstar is looking to release Bully 2 on current and next-gen consoles - similar to what they did with Grand Theft Auto V.
“The motive for this is purely financial,” the source said according to the video. “Just like with GTA V on the Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
The YouTuber pointed out that this was just based on the current “state of planning” according to his insider, and he didn’t dismiss the possibility of the game being postponed.
Speculation about Bully 2 has been running wild recently, with fans apparently finding clues all over the place, even in the new GTA Online Casino update.
There was even talk floating around that Rockstar could reveal Bully 2 at E3 2019, but that turned out to be just a rumor as E3 came and went.
Red Dead 2 came out in October 2018, which is in a similar time frame described by the YouTuber’s Rockstar insider, and right before the holidays is when we see a lot of big games released.
Bully fans who have been patiently waiting all these years may finally have some light at the end of the tunnel, if SWETGA’s leak pans out.
