Bully gets October release

Wednesday 9 August 2006
Rockstar has announced that its controversial action game Bully will be released this October. Last week we reported that the game was still in development for PS2 and would be released "later this year", but now Rockstar has been more specific about the date.

Bully is an action game set in a fictional US boarding school called Bulworth Academy. It follows the exploits of 15-year-old pupil Jimmy Hopkins as he deals with school life and the problems and dangers that full time education presents.

When the game was announced last year it sparked a furious reaction from anti-bullying groups but, since then, Rockstar has shown the game to many of those who campaigned against it and is now ready unleash the Rockstar Vancouver-developed game on the world. More Bully news soon.
