Sources claim Rockstar have scrapped Bully 2 development

According to a new leak, Rockstar spent more than a year working on a sequel to the original Bully in the early 2010s, but the project failed to get off the ground.

The original Bully game came out in 2006 and was a hit with Rockstar fans, but since then, any news or updates for a potential sequel are few and far between.

There have been a few apparent Bully Easter Eggs found in other Rockstar games, like Red Dead Redemption 2, and supposed leaks about a Bully sequel, but so far, there’s nothing concrete from Rockstar themselves.

Rockstar GamesPlayers are itching to roam the halls of Bullworth academy once again.

Rockstar has taken a shot at Bully 2 already

VideoGamesChronicle has apparently heard from a source inside Rockstar that claims the so-called Bully 2 sequel was in development in the early 2010s, but was scrapped shortly after it began.

Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser and a group of developers apparently wrote a script for Bully as early as 2008, which contained the first few scenes and an outline of the rest of the story, according to VGC’s sources.

Bully 2 was apparently in development shortly after the original game came out.

The story would have starred Jimmy, who was the protagonist of the first game, and many returning characters. It began at Jimmy’s step-dad’s house in the summer at the end of a school year, VGC’s source said, which are similar to claims reported by Bully YouTuber SWEGTA.

A team at Rockstar New England spent time fleshing out the game and it’s story around the same time in 2010 and 2013, the source claimed, and spent between a year and 18 months on the sequel.

So, why don’t we have a Bully sequel already? According to VGC’s sources, Bully 2 “fizzled out,” and the team behind development eventually moved on to other projects.

“It existed, it was playable, it was just a shame it never got off the ground,” the source told VGC, who also pointed out that a lot of developers who worked at Rockstar New England during that time period list an “unannounced game” on their resumes.

Bully 2 was apparently in later stages of development, before the team moved on to something else.

Will we ever get a Bully 2?

Speculation about Bully 2 has been running wild recently, with fans apparently finding clues all over the place – even in a recent 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 Redemption fans had to wait almost a decade between the first game and RDR2, so if a Bully sequel ever does come out it, would be more than a decade between games – and hopefully well worth the wait.

TFT patch 10.25 to feature Talon buffs, Warwick & Moonlight nerfs, more

TFT patch 10.25 is on its way as the final update ahead of the Mid-Set update, and it’s set to be massive. Talon could be back on the menu, Warwick and Moonlight are getting a nerf, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

The TFT meta has stabilized after patch 10.24. No longer is it 4-1 roll down and pray, because there’s actually meaning to the early game.

That doesn’t mean there’s nothing Riot can’t improve though. With the b-patch finally going live with nerfs to Zed, Yone, and Runaan’s Hurricane, TFT patch 10.25 is going to be the big one before the year’s end. It’s the final patch before January’s mid-set update, which will shake up units, traits, and more.

TFT patch 10.24b nerfs Zed, Yone, more

Before we dive too deep into TFT patch 10.25, it’s important to note some changes were made in the middle of TFT patch 10.24 that you might have missed. Zed and Yone were nerfed, alongside traits Keeper, Cultist, and attack speed item Runaan’s Hurricane.

This was to curb the power of Zed carry comps which had risen to prominence. An attack speed nerf has made them less potent, but ultimately still strong. The same goes for the rest of the nerfs, which have lightly nudged the power balance instead of major overhauls.

Moonlight the big target on TFT patch 10.25

TFT patch 10.24 had one big winner, and it was Moonlight reroll compositions. Diana and Lissandra carry have been two of the strongest picks on this patch thanks to the rolling changes.

However, on TFT patch 10.25, Riot are bringing them back in line. Because it’s easier to hit the composition, Riot have had to bring back Lissandra and Diana’s damage to be more in line with other one-cost units. While they still have the four-star mechanic, it won’t be as hard to beat.

Warwick is also set for a big nerf to his lifesteal at one and two-star to compensate for his ability overhaul last patch. This will be coupled with a Divine nerf, reducing the amount of true damage the units dish out.

Wukong, Fiora, Sylas, Xin Zhao, Evelynn, and Talon are all set for buffs, while Vi and Kayn are on Riot’s naughty list.
