NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 9, 2005–Rockstar Games, the world-renowned publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTWO) is proud to announce Bully for the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system and Xbox(R) video game system from Microsoft. Bully takes the Rockstar tradition of groundbreaking, innovative, original gameplay and humorous tongue-in-cheek storytelling to an entirely new setting: the schoolyard. Bully is the brutally funny debut title from Rockstar Vancouver and is expected to hit retail shelves in October 2005. Bully will be shown behind closed doors in the Rockstar booth at E3 (324 South hall).
“We are really excited about the first title to be developed by our Rockstar Vancouver studio,” said Sam Houser, President of Rockstar Games. “We fought hard to keep this title under wraps for ages and I am thrilled that we can finally unveil it to people at E3.”
As a troublesome schoolboy, you’ll laugh and cringe as you stand up to bullies, get picked on by teachers, play pranks on malicious kids, win or lose the girl, and ultimately learn to navigate the obstacles of the fictitious reform school, Bullworth Academy.
