Tez2 and Yan2295 are two former Rockstar Games insiders that tend to leak some details about the company’s future or previous plans every now and then. In a recent comment by Tez2, he claimed that the pre-production phase for Grand Theft Auto VI started in 2015, and then slowed down in 2017 due to the big load of work that was required for Red Dead Redemption 2 and Bully 2. However, the team somehow decides to cancel Bully 2 and share the focus on Grand Theft Auto VI and Red Dead Redemption 2 one year prior to its launch in 2018. It’s worth noting that Yan2295 confirmed Tez2’s claim in a comment on Reddit.
If it turns out to be true, it’s sad that Bully 2 has been sacrificed for working on two giant projects. Apparently, the game had been canceled in 2009 and 2013 as well, due to similar problems.
Bully 2 Was Apparently Canceled in 2017 to Focus on Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto VI
Some new rumors suggest that Rockstar Games has canceled Bully 2 for the third time in 2017 to focus on other heavy projects.
