Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 release pushed to 2021
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2’s release has been pushed from 2020 to 2021, publisher Paradox Interactive and developer Hardsuit Labs have announced.
In a joint statement, Hardsuit Lab’s Andy Kipling and Paradox Interactive’s Jakob Munthe explained that “this is not a decision taken lightly” and has been made to give the team more time to meet “the quality bar and ambitions” set.
“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,” the statement reads. “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.”
Earlier this year, Hardsuit Labs revealed that Damsel, a Brujah vampire and member of the Anarchs, will be returning in Bloodlines 2. Courtenay Taylor, Damsel’s voice actress in the first game, will be reprising her role in the sequel.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is in development for Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
