Rockstar Games has confirmed that Bully - subject of much controversy - is still set for release in 2006.

"Bully's very much still in development and slated for release later this year," a Rockstar spokesperson told us.

Although very little has been seen of the Rockstar Vancouver game, it's still managed to follow GTA into the pages of the tabloids thanks to widespread criticism from hair-triggered politicians and publicity-hungry lawyers.

This despite a relatively light-hearted premise - a troublesome schoolboy standing up to bullies by pulling pranks.

Rockstar has remained fairly quiet about it, but development has continued undeterred. "We hope to be showing it to people soon," a spokesperson told us.
