Hardsuit Labs have been working hard on the Vampire The Masquerade sequel. This is the sequel to the original game that first came out in 2004, and will put you in the city of Seattle for your newest, bloody adventure. It puts you in the role of a fledgling vampire, someone who will have to pick which clan to join, as well as fit into a society where darkness is around every corner, you’re not sure who to trust and ultimately, blood is king.
Unfortunately, as Polygon reports, we may have to wait just a little while longer before we can actually play the game for ourselves, as the launch date has moved from early 2020.
In a blog post penned by Andy Kipling and Brian Mitsoda, the two addressed how hard they’re working to make a game that is a worthy successor to the original Bloodlines. Which, as they say themselves, “is a remarkable game” but has mistakes that don’t bear repeating.
“Today, we have to tell you that we need some more time to get you the game you’ve been waiting for.” Kipling and Mitsoda wrote. “Although Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 will still launch in 2020, we have decided to value quality over making the Q1 launch window.”
The blog post even referred to the original game’s launch as “too early”. Considering the number of bugs that riddled the game, it’s obvious that the dev team are keen to steer away from that and deliver a game that we’ll enjoy — even if it is later than planned.
A new date hasn’t been given as of yet, but Hardsuit Labs signed off by stating that more information was to come during the PDXCON Announcement stream on Saturday the 19th. So be sure to mark that in your calendar, gaymers!
Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 is a game that we’re all eagerly awaiting for here at Gayming Magazine. Check us out for more information in the future!
