The battle royale title, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt announced it’s killing off active development on the game.
The team at Sharkmob is shutting down active development as the game was unable to remain popular in order to continue support.
They also stated that servers for the game, which only fully launched just over a year ago, will remain running as long as there’s “an active player base”. At the time of writing, the 24 hour peak player count has hit around 1300-1400 over the past week.
The next official major patch will be the game’s last one, but minor maintenance patches are also promised for the future to fix issues that arise. Developer Sharkmob plan on shutting down the ability to purchase premium currency on September 26, 2023.
Fortunately, they do plan on implementing a way to acquire in-game tokens through playing the game so that players who continue to play as the game’s development winds down can still unlock cosmetics.
While development may be shutting down. Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt is still playable and available on Windows PC (via Steam) and PlayStation 5, for now.
