Rockstar Games is all hands on deck right now for Grand Theft Auto 6, but fans are still yearning for some of its other IPs to make a return. We have yet to learn about Rockstar’s plans for Bully, but one talented team of creators have crafted an incredible showcase revealing what a remake of Bully would look like if it were rebuilt in Unreal Engine 5.
Utilising all the tools provided by Unreal Engine 5, YouTube channel TeaserPlay hand-crafted a video demonstration of a potential Bully remake. These include updated visuals, revamped character models (using Epic Games’ MetaHuman tool), better shading and lighting, movement and so much more.
Fans continue to surprise the gaming world with their creative talents and skills. This Bully Unreal Engine 5 remake is no exception. The project was apparently made to “raise the expectations of gamers” in the hopes of Rockstar Games getting around to an official remake one day. Unfortunately, that seems very unlikely to happen, especially given recent reports of the company shelving planned remakes of GTA 4 and Red Dead Redemption – including canning PS5 and Xbox Series X/S ports of Red Dead Redemption 2.
Right now, we can only dream and imagine what Rockstar’s treasure trove of IPs would look like had they’d been given the remake or sequel treatment.
In related news, Rockstar is doubling down on the development of GTA 6, with plenty of new information revealed about the game via reputable Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier. According to the report, the next game will feature a playable female protagonist, a fictional Miami setting (which is likely Vice City) and offer an evolving world that will be expanded through new cities. Analysts expect the game to launch sometime between 2023 and 2024.
Players can still play Bully on PS4 and PS5 as it’s available through the PlayStation Store. Check out the remake footage below.
