The development of the title may not have been going at the desired pace, but nobody expected such a major 180-degree change. Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2 just delayed its release, one more time. However, the modification in the project is so great that it affects the development team itself.
This has been announced Paradox Interactive through your balance at the end of the year. The company begins by saying that “the current coronavirus pandemic has had a mixed effect on our business.” “Therefore, we have chosen to postpone several releases planned but not communicated to ensure adequate quality, “the statement clarifies.
This also affects the development of Vampire: the Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, where we reported a delay during the third quarter of 2020. We have now chosen to postpone the release of the game further, and will not release it in 2021. We have also decided that Hardsuit Labs will now will not be leading the development of Bloodlines 2, and we have started a collaboration with a new studio partner to finish work on the game. It was a difficult decision, but we are convinced that it is the right way to do justice to the game.

In addition, Paradox made a statement with similar characteristics on the Bloodlines 2 Discord channel. They assure that they will stop accepting reservations for the game for the moment and take the opportunity to “honor Hardsuit Labs for their efforts and thank them for their hard work in the project. The studio has done a great job laying the groundwork for the game. “
We will see how the development of the title progresses in the future and which studio is in charge of carrying out the project now. The truth is that things did not look quite good for the studio, since months ago lost its creative designer and creative director.
