A sequel to 2006’s Bully may be riding on the coattails of Max Payne 3‘s release, Rockstar’s Vice President Dan Houser told Gamasutra earlier today. While the Vancouver branch of the studio still “adores” the prep-school set adventure, scheduling concerns have kept a sequel from the development table. The completion of the latest installment in the noir-action Max Payne franchise may just give them the gap they need to start work on a followup.
“We didn’t want to start doing the Bully sequel instantly,” explains Houser. “Contrary to a lot of people, we like to take a little bit of time at the end of a game before starting a sequel.”
Then again, Max Payne 3 was also something that Rockstar Vancouver had “been meaning to start for a while”, so the countdown for new information on the possible Bully sequel could be a long one.
