Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 Delayed to 2021

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

Paradox Interactive and developer Hardsuit Labs have announced Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 has been delayed.

The game was originally set to launch in 2020, but has been delayed due to “the quality bar and ambitions we have set for ourselves.” For those relying on machine translation, the joint message by Paradox Interactive’s Jakob Munthe and Hardsuit Labs’ Andy Kipling reads as follows.

“Our goal has always been to deliver the best game possible, to immerse you into a Seattle re-imagined in the World of Darkness, and deliver a worthy successor to the original Bloodlines game. Due to the quality bar and ambitions we have set for ourselves, we have made the difficult decision that we need more time. This means that our goal to release in 2020 is no longer possible. Moving launch is one of the changes we are making to ensure the best player experience possible.

This is not a decision taken lightly nor is it the first option we considered. We will share more information in the coming months on launch timing and other organizational changes that will help us achieve this goal.

We understand that this will be at disappointment to many of you, but we also appreciate how our ambition is echoed though many parts of the community. We hope you understand that, while difficult, this is the right call.”
