Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 Delayed Until 2021
Paradox Interactive and Hardsiut Labs have confirmed that Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 will no longer be releasing in 2020. Now, the game is due to release at an unknown time in 2021, with both Paradox and Hardsuit Labs that they want to hit the “quality bar and ambitions we have set for ourselves”. The statement doesn’t indicate when in 2021 the game will launch, but given the lack of updates recently, the news is no surprise. Here’s the full statement via twitter:
The statement reads:
“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.”
“We understand that this will be a disappointment to many of you, but we also appreciate how our ambition is echoed through many parts of the community. We hope you understand that, while difficult, this is the right call,”
The game had already been delayed once. It was originally scheduled to ship in Q1 of 2020, before the studio said they would “value quality over making the Q1 launch window”.
