Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 has been delayed and is now set to release sometime in 2021. Hardsuit Labs and Paradox interactive released a statement on Twitter announcing the decision to push back the release of the upcoming sequel to the 2004 cult classic vampire RPG.
Originally set for a 2019 release, it was later delayed to 2020 in the hope of avoiding repeating the “past mistakes” of the first game, which had a pretty buggy launch. During an Inside Xbox stream earlier in the year, we learned that the bloodsucking adventure will be coming to the Xbox Series X with Smart Delivery compatibility. Also due to release on the PS5, the sequel is still set to arrive on current-gen platforms.
With many teaser trailers and blog updates, Hardsuit Labs has already introduced a number of different vampiric factions and set the scene for the role you’ll be playing in Bloodlines 2. As a newly sired vampire who finds themselves caught up in the dark underbelly of Seattle’s vampire society, you’re thrown into the midst of the conflict between the different factions and it’s up to you to decide how you handle each and every situation.
While we don’t know when exactly in 2021 Bloodlines 2 will release just yet, the developers close the statement by saying that more information will be shared in the coming months.
