Bloodlines 2 is Delayed Again Because the Whole Studio is Sacked

Wow that sucks.

Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 keeps getting delayed. First, to later in 2020, then to 2021, and now we’re being told — just two months into the year — that it won’t be coming out in 2021 either. And we’ve even reached the point where the publisher, Paradox, isn’t even guessing what date it could be launching on. All we know right now is that it won’t be this year.

As for the reason for the delay? Well… that’s where things get interesting. Because after a few issues with individuals on the team (specifically for their abusive histories), Paradox has decided that the entire developer team, Hardsuit Labs, has to go.

“...we have made the hard decision that Hardsuit Labs will no longer be leading the development of Bloodlines 2 - which also means that we will not be releasing in 2021 as previously planned. Since we cannot at this time communicate a new release date, we've also decided to stop accepting pre-orders for the time being.

This game is very important to us and it has been an ambitious project from the very start. In order to meet our goals for it, we’ve come to the conclusion that a change is needed and, as a result, more development time is required.

We’d like to take this opportunity to honor Hardsuit Labs for their efforts and thank them for their hard work on the project. The studio has done a tremendous job in laying the foundations for the game and we hope that you, the community, will also appreciate their contribution to Bloodlines 2.”

Not exactly informative, but it does explain why they can’t even offer an ETA: they haven’t even got anyone working on the damn game for now. This is not normal in the games industry, and while I’m sure we’d all love to know the how’s and why’s, what matters is: we’re a long ways away from getting Bloodlines 2 now.

Oh well. At least we still have that Battle Royale thing to look forward to, I guess.
