New York, NY- 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®2 computer entertainment system
and Xbox® 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.
