Rockstar’s ‘Project Bonaire’ piqued the interest of both Bully 2 and Red Dead Redemption 2 fans alike, and now the mystery as to what it actually is has deepened even further.

Bonaire first made headlines on August 21 after the Australian ratings board IARC refused to classify the Rockstar project due to the inclusion of violence and sexual content.

On August 30, a leaker claimed to know what the mystery project is, stating that it was in fact a PC port for Red Dead Redemption 2. But the mystery has since deepened after someone from the Bully 2 subreddit emailed the ratings board directly.

What is Project Bonaire?

On September 13, Reddit user ‘AIieNNatioN’ uploaded a screenshot of an email response they’d received from the IARC after they’d inquired after Bonaire back on August 20.

“Thank you for your email of 20 August 2019 regarding the classification of the computer game Bonaire,” the response read. 

Interestingly, the reply then went on to state that the classification was made in error: “The Department has contacted the game developer (Rockstar) who advised that an error was made when completing the IARC questionnaire. There is no computer game called Bonaire.”

The email sounded off by stating that the project had since been removed from the site altogether. “It has been removed from the National Classification Database.”

While this would usually mean that the mystery has been cleared up, another interesting development was unearthed. 

The board refused to classify Red Dead Redemption 2 on the same day that AIieNNatioN inquired about Bonaire.

The discovery begs the question: why would the IARC refuse to provide classification for a title that is already released? 

It makes the August 30 leaker’s claims of a PC port seem all the more credible. Get your tin foil hats out – we’re strapping in.

Australian ClassificationRed Dead Redemption 2 was refused classification on August 20.

As with all conspiracy theories and rumors, nothing should be taken as the truth until the game developer comes out and confirms it itself.

While the PC port for RDR2 is still unconfirmed, it is looking more and more likely. Stay tuned to Dexerto for any further developments.

Marquee Matchups are back once again in FIFA 21, with two of Europe’s biggest derbies taking centre stage – Barcelona vs Real Madrid and Schalke vs Borussia Dortmund. 

Ever since the Marquee Matchups SBCs were added to FIFA, they’ve typically focused on the biggest games of the weeks. Though, sometimes like in Week 3, you’ve got to look elsewhere. 

After many clubs across the globe let their players depart for international duty, and the Marquee Matchups focused on four European matchups, club action is back for Week 4 – with the focus on some interesting clashes.

These include the first El Clasico of the season between Barcelona and Real Madrid, as well as the first Revierderby between Schalke and Borussia Dortmund. So, let’s get right into it. 

Barcelona vs Real Madrid

First off, the standout game from this round of Marquee Matchups is undoubtedly the Clasico but don’t worry, you won’t need to give up a Messi, Benzema, Hazard, or Ansu Fati to complete this SBC.

No, instead, you just need a player from either club, as well as some others from La Liga to get you to a squad rating of 75. According to FUTBin, this part of the SBC group will cost between 4,000 and 8,000 coins. 

  • Min #1 player from Barcelona or Real Madrid
  • Min #2 players from La Liga Santander 
  • Max 3 leagues
  • Min 75 Squad Rating 
  • Min 85 Team Chemistry

Schalke vs Borussia Dortmund

Moving on and sticking with the other derby – Schalke and Borussia Dortmund. Again, for this SBC, you’ll need a player from either side.

You’ll also need to use players from at least four different clubs while also achieving a Team Chemistry of at least 80. Again, it’s not too expensive, and should set you back between 5,000 and 9,000 coins if you need to start from scratch.

  • Min #1 player from Schalke or Dortmund
  • Min #4 different clubs
  • Max 3 in same league count
  • Min 75 Squad Rating 
  • Min 80 Team Chemistry

Southampton vs Everton

Aside from those two games, there is also an SBC for the matchup between Everton and Southampton – seeing as the Blues are, as of writing, topping the Premier League table. 

You don’t need players from either side, however, for this one – just players from the Premier League and one other league. Yet, you are limited to a maximum of six players from the same club.

Again, it won’t cost all that much. According to FUTBin estimates, it’ll set you back between 5,000 and 8,000 coins if you need to build the whole thing from scratch.

  • Min #2 players from La Liga Santander 
  • Min #2 leagues
  • Max 6 in players from same club
  • Min 74 Squad Rating 
  • Min 75 Team Chemistry

Galatasary vs Trabzonspor

Last but not least, the final game in this SBC group is a matchup between two Turkish sides – Galatasary and Trabzonspor. For this, you’ll need at least one Turkish player, but he doesn’t have to play for either team.

In addition to one Turkish player, you’ll also need at least eight silver players and a minimum of 75 when it comes to Team Chemistry. Like the other three, its pretty cheap, as FUTBin suggests it’ll cost between 5,000 and 9,000 coins.

  • Min #1 player from Turkey
  • Min #8 Silver players
  • Max 5 nations
  • Min 2 rares
  • Min 75 Team Chemistry


All in all, its another set of Marquee Matchups that aren’t incredibly difficult or expensive to complete, and have some nice rewards in store.
