Bully was released in 2006 on PlayStation 2 and was later ported to Wii, PC and Xbox 360. “We knew that we didn’t want to start doing the Bully sequel instantly at that second with those guys — even though it is a property that, like Max, we adore and might come back to in the future. There was just no impetus to do that then,” said Houser. “So we said, ‘You can do Max, and then we will see what we can do with Bully.’ So it was really waiting for the slot to open up and the group to open up to at least start work on it.” He also mentioned that the people at Rockstar like to “spend a bit of time” at the end of a project so don’t expect any news straight after Max Payne 3 launches.
EGM’s TAKE: More chances to wreak havoc in a school? Yes please.
