Bully 2 Rumored to Release in Holiday 2020

Rockstar Games rumored to release long-anticipated title Bully 2 for both current and next-gen consoles in 2020.

Though action-adventure game Bully came out more than a decade ago and has been ported to re-release several times for next generation consoles, fans still crave for a follow-up game by developer/publisher Rockstar Games.

Apparently, they have a reputation of delaying sequels and now that Red Dead Redemption got its overdue, it would be a good time to start working on a long-awaited one for one of their most controversial games of all time.

Set into classic open-world sandbox, Bully lets you play as 15-year-old troubled teenager named Jimmy Hopkins, who finds out that his boarding school is full of bullies after being admitted to Bullworth Academy of New England.

He can engage in activities and what not within in-game world to bring peace to his school other than taking part in mini-games. Players can align themselves with various groups or assert dominance over them to eventually bring peace.

According to YouTuber SWEGTA, Bully 2 is going to see release on fall 2020 for cross-generation platforms. Information received from an insider reveals that the game will come out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One before next-gen hardware.

Previously, similar info was leaked by a self-proclaimed Rockstar insider that lines up with recent statement of SWEGTA. Their reason for cross-generation release of current consoles and upcoming ones are purely motivated by money though.

On GTAForums, SWEGTA has given out following statement regarding development of Bully sequel yesterday.

The way they [Rockstar] are going about this has completely changed. As it stands, they are aiming to release their next game during the holiday season in 2020 (most likely October or November). I can’t say for sure, but that appears to be the current state of planning. Basically, what they want to do is release their next upcoming game on next gen hardware (PS5 and the new Xbox), as well as on the current gen. The motive for this is mainly financial, just like with GTA V on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Also to note that the same YouTuber has claimed Rockstar Games having to cancel development or to put hold on Bully 2 in a video four weeks ago, which completely contradicts his most recent claims that are yet to be verified.

Besides, any rumor like this regarding any major AAA-title should always be taken with a grain of salt until official confirmation. Surely, they can give a shot to some long-untouched IP before diving into development of their next smash-hit.

Most recently, Rockstar has seen biggest player count days on Grand Theft Auto V upon releasing latest casino update for GTA Online and Red Dead Redemption 2 of last year has already sold over 25 million copies worldwide.

Bully had a pretty different premise back in 2006 and its sequel can be even more unique in 2020. Of course, fans would expect Rockstar to do exactly that but before they do, we now hold onto rumors while waiting for an official reveal.

Red Dead Online Battle Royale Mode Gun Rush Live Now

Red Dead Online gets a more action-focused Battle Royale mode Gun Rush today, which is a 32-player fight for survival.

Battle Royale genre of games is not seeing the same traction it once saw with games like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Later, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 managed to show some potential for a while though with the release of their Blackout mode.

Western action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 however took the most unique take on the category with their online multiplayer component Red Dead Online where players duke it out among them using bow and arrows or a bunch of throwing knives.

Although the known online multiplayer mode of RDR2 is still in beta phase after launching on November 2018, developer/publisher Rockstar Games released a brand-new update to make battle royale more interesting and take it to a bigger scale.

Titled Gun Rush, the newly introduced mode pits a maximum of 32 players into the same Wild West where the story of Arthur Morgan took place, to fight till the last person standing in an ever-shrinking area as they look for weapons and ammunition.

The previously existed game mode "Make It Count" was an interesting take on the genre but on a much smaller scale that didn't rely much on weapons for survival but the updated game mode takes things to a more action-packed, intensified extent.

Rockstar also plans to bring in changes like bounty upgrades for committing crimes and Parley system to deal with feuds in structured manner. These balances will be implemented mostly to deal with aggressive players and grievance.

Of course RDR2 version of battle royale is not heading towards the weird building mechanics in the middle of a fight like Fortnite Battle Royale or forcing players to face poor optimization and performance issues like PUBG. They are keeping it to a manageable number of 32 players to have everything under control.

Another change they are planning to make for Red Dead Online is altering the way player blips in the map to make it more difficult to detect player locations within long distances unless they start killing indiscriminately and then the blip gets darken so that others can identify them.
