The lights are on
The Bully franchise has many fans, and the series' latest trademark news will only stoke their passion.
On July 25 Take-Two filed for a new trademark for the franchise, and it runs the usual gamut of video games, downloadables, films, etc.
The game's original developer, Rockstar Vancouver, worked on Max Payne 3, and a few years ago Rockstar vice president Dan Houser said that the company never intended to dive right into a Bully sequel immediately. Now that Max Payne 3 is done, perhaps work will begin in earnest on Bully 2.
Our TakeI don't think a Bully game is coming any time soon, but Rockstar is too committed to its properties for this to merely be a legal formality.
