Take-Two registers a Bully trademark
Take-Two has registered a new trademark for the Bully series sparking rumours that a new Bully game is in the works.
The registration was filed for Bully Bullworth Academy: Canis Canem Edit, the school name, crest and motto and is more of a renewal of the trademark rather than a new trademark. It does pose the question of why they would spend money on renewing a trademark if they weren't at least planning on making a sequel?
Not long after the release of GTA V it emerged that Rockstar New England, one of the teams responsible for the original Bully was working on a new game in a famous game series. The new trademark filing could indicate that it is indeed a sequel to Bully that they are working on for next-gen platforms.
Bully first appeared on the PS2 in 2005 in the US and 2006 in Europe due to a required name change to Canis Canem Edit. It was followed by a Wii and Xbox 360 release in 2008 as Bully: Scholarship Edition. It featured very little in the way of bullying but lots of slacking off and some quite educational class related minigames.
