Upcoming World of Darkness role-playing title Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2 is being delayed out of 2021, publisher Paradox Interactive confirmed. Additionally, Hardsuit Labs is no longer leading development.
The developers of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 announced today on Twitter that the game will not be ready by the end of 2020 and will instead release sometime in 2021. Updates on timing and organizational changes meant to ensure the project's success will be shared in the coming months.
Chris Avellone, best known for his work on RPGs and on recent titles like Dying Light 2 and Prey, was accused of sexual harassment and abuse on social media over the weekend, and developers who have worked with him have been responding.
Vampire The Masquerade is a cult-hit vampiric RPG series, slated to get a sequel for launch later in 2020. Microsoft and Paradox showed off gameplay of Bloodlines 2 at their Xbox Series X event, and it's looking rather tasty.
