Are We Still At Least Six Months Away From Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2’s Launch?

There is a possibility that the sequel to Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines will not be in our hands even before the end of June 2021.

Even though there were official release plans about Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 launching in the first quarter of 2020, the game eventually got delayed, plus a few people behind the project have left. We discussed both subjects. Now, the publisher, Paradox Interactive‘s CEO hints at how the game set in the World of Darkness will not be available in the early months of 2021. Instead, it might be coming far later than that.

„I do not think it will come in the first half of the year, but we will see. The schedule for Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 has been affected by both staff dropouts and the pandemic. The delays led to Paradox deciding to adapt the game also for the new console generations (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X), which have been released recently. This adaptation work has in itself contributed to the delay in the launch.

To be able to develop for the next generation, you have to have development kits from the manufacturers. And I’m pretty sure that both Sony and Microsoft were affected by the pandemic because they did not have that many development kits,” said Paradox CEO Ebba Ljungerud to a Swedish financial publication, Placera. Did the CEO just underrate the company? We haven’t seen such a comment in recent times.

Hardsuit Labs‘ game was initially announced to arrive in the first quarter of 2020, but now, the end of 2021 looks more plausible for Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 to arrive on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
