It's rare in gaming to have a stand-alone title that performed really well. Normally, if a game performs well, you can regularly expect a sequel. Take Red Dead Redemption, for example, the beloved cowboy adventure game finally got Red Dead Redemption 2 a mere 8 years after the fact. But Rockstar hasn't given another one of its beloved games, Bully, the same treatment, despite its critical and fan success - but that could be about to change. The Bully copyright has been renewed.
As TheGamer reports, fans have spotted that the Bully trademark has been recently renewed despite no games officially on the way. The status on the United States Patent and Trademark Office says that the most recent update was on April 30, 2021 - only a few days ago. It could just be Rockstar maintaining the patent in case they want to come back to the IP at some point, but as Rockstar has been hiring a lot at the moment, some believe it could be a hint that Rockstar's next game is going to be a Bully sequel.
Rockstar's latest game Red Dead Redemption 2 is basically a masterpiece - but that doesn't mean players are exactly good at playing the Western RPG. Here are our favourite fails in RDR2:
In case you missed it, last week Rockstar North put up an advertisement for game testers to join the company. Although these individuals could be working on Red Dead Online or GTA Online with their constant updates, there is speculation that testers are needed for a new game on the way. After all, it has been a few years since Red Dead Redemption 2 released, and Rockstar is due at least a game announcement.
Bully might be the IP the team is coming back to. If you're unfamiliar with Bully, well, you play as a kid who is frankly a bit of a bully - figures, right? Originally released in 2006, many gave it good review scores and it has gone on to grow a legendary status. A Bully sequel would be a great move from Rockstar if it had a good idea of the game's content, as there are so many who love the original already. Perhaps the trademark renewal means nothing, but we can always dream.
