Take-Two has filed a new trademark for Rockstar Games' much-loved Bully IP, but what does the future hold for the game?

At the very least Take-Two wishes to maintain control of its IP and will continue to sell the original game, but a sequel could also be on the cards.

Take-Two said overnight that it builds franchises to last.

"It's been our goal not just to preserve and grow the Grand Theft Auto franchise, but also to build other franchises that we think can be permanent, whether that's the Red Dead franchise or the Borderlands franchise or the BioShock franchise or others, Civilization, for example," said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick.

Whether or not Bully is viewed as a "permanent" franchise remains to be seen.

I still listen to the music pretty often on my way into work. Even managed to find a few tracks online that for some reason had been cut from both physical and standard digital release of the OST... every track and piece of background music, without exception, compliments the aesthetics and tone of the game superbly.

A comment by Shawn Lee (the composer) set speculation of a sequel off a couple of years ago... I'm just hoping for a reveal video after GTA V hits, with a VERY quick surprise release shortly thereafter.

Bully would be my desert island game, upon reflection.

The musical score is incredible. One of my all-time favourites. Would love a sequel set at a military school.

It was also on offer over XBL for a time, as well as the original version hitting PSN as a classic downloadable title...

I noticed that the first Bully has been popping up in PC sales over the past few weeks, I wonder if they have been gauging interest.

Awesome. Bully (Canis Canem Edit) is one of my fav PS2 games of all time.

Bully is easily one of my Top Five of All Time titles... along with (coincidentally enough) Back to Skool... must be the setting... :p
