Vampires: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 has a rather bumpy development process behind. The title was announced for the first time in 2019, to the delight of many fans of the franchise. Recently, the offshoot was postponed by the publisher Paradox Interactive indefinitely, as there were probably some problems with development.
At least the title still exists as Paradox explained this month, but Vampires: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 was actually shortly before to be placed on ice, as the CEO Fredrik Wester explained in an interview with the Swedish website Avanza:
When we have taken the game from the original developer, we had a long review of whether we should end the development or continue. We were actually ready to set the production completely. But we got an idea that we thought that we thought She was convincingly enough to play the title, and we have very good hopes that it will be a good game that meets the expectations of the players.
Bloodlines 2 (Buy Now € 52.57) was originally developed by HardSuit Labs, but the studio was deducted from the project in February this year after it came to some shifts and loss of the Narrative Leadership. Among them the lead Writer Brian Mitsoda, Creative-Director Ka ai Cluney, and Senior Narrative Designer Cara Ellison. Who is currently working on Bloodlines 2 has not yet been known, but according to Wester, it is a very serious and talented developer .
Whether it goes on to Bloodlines 2 with the turn, according to Wester depends on how Bloodlines 2 will sell. According to him, there is a high demand for good games in the RPG genre, but he just wants to wait, how Bloodlines is recorded .
While you wait for the next offshoot of the series, you can try the recently published Battle-Royale Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt. Also, a Narrative-RPG called Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong will be released for which you can already see a first trailer.
