Analyst doubts Bully sequel

Reckons sales were a bit crap.

Analyst Michael Pachter has said that he doubts Rockstar will bother doing a sequel to Canis Canem Edit, despite all the critical acclaim.

Speaking to GamePolitics, Pachter, who represents Wedbush Morgan Securities, painted a picture of a game that will sell just about enough units worldwide to break even - the suggestion being that Rockstar and parent company Take-Two won't be happy with the results.

Pachter said that following US sales which "trailed off pretty dramatically in November," he'd estimate around 800,000 units will be sold during the game's life-time. "My guess is that the company did no better than to break even. I would NOT expect a sequel," he said.

Sales in the UK have certainly tailed off a bit, but the game now enjoys a top ten position thanks to heavy discounting - and tops the budget-priced Chart-Track rundown.

However, despite surprisingly widespread controversy, Canis Canem Edit did tremendously well critically. Rockstar hasn't announced a sequel though, and last night US representatives declined to comment on Pachter's speculation.
