Rockstar's Dan Houser is keen to make another Bully title.

Speaking with Polygon, Houser expressed his surprise at the initial outrage over Rockstar Vancouver’s 2006 boarding school title, but also his affection for the game.

"I know I want to [make another Bully game]," said Houser.

"Well, hopefully, you never know. There's a lot of directions I could go with that one, it's funny."

However, the idea that Bully protagonist Jimmy Hopkins could grow up to be a Grand Theft Auto character didn't appeal to Houser.

"I never saw him as being that level of degenerate," he said.

"I saw him as a bad teen, because he comes from a tough home, who could go either direction. He's not going to be a carjacker.

“He's too white collar for that already. He's at a shit private school, but he's going to end up being really happy because he's at the worst bit of his life, or being a sort of messed up white collar doofus," Houser added.

"He was an unpleasant soul, but he had a heart. To some extent you could say the same was true of [Grand Theft Auto IV's] Niko in a bizarre way. But [Jimmy's] not trying to burn down the school, he's more trying to stand up to injustice."
