Rockstar Games may be best known for making big, violent open-world action games like Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption, but one of the developer’s most well-loved titles remains Bully, the underrated 2006 action-adventure game following a student navigating the social hierarchy of a private boarding school. Fans have been clamoring for a sequel for over a decade and while nothing has been confirmed, a new casting call suggests that Rockstar may be working on Bully 2 after all.
As reported by Rockstar Intel, there are currently seven casting calls for a “new unannounced video game title with a leading UK games developer, shooting at Pinewood Studios.” The calls are mainly for teenage roles, with a content warning and some vague details about the project itself.
“Mild violence and profundity will be used in scenes with the young performer. The project itself is a thriller/drama and all scenes with the young performer will be handled with sensitivity.”
Admittedly, that isn’t much to go on but the casting calls also mention they are looking for actors to play staff such as “College Professors”, and there have also been several Rockstar staff who have engaged with the listings, adding further fuel to speculation that this is a Rockstar-produced game.
It’s been rumored that Bully 2 will be Rockstar’s next game after the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 but as with all things of this nature, it’s best to take all of this with a grain of salt.
