Paradox Interactive and Hardsuit Labs have sad news for fans eagerly awaiting Vampire: the Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. The game has been delayed from its original Q1 2020 release date to “later in 2020”. How much later remains unknown.
While the game has been in development for the past 3.5 years, the team feels that it needs more time to get players the game they’ve been waiting for. “We have decided to value quality over making the Q1 launch window,” the press announcement reads.
Other notable takeaways from the notice:
- The team wants to ensure that it offers players “a deep, branching storyline; fascinating and amazingly acted characters; the rich universe of the World of Darkness”.
- Devs want to avoid mistakes made in the first game that includes launching too early.
- Feedback has been crucial to making this decision.
You can read the full text of the announcement on the VTMB Reddit where developers have promised to answer as many questions about the issue as possible.
