Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines has garnered an extremely dedicated cult following since its release in 2004, and as such developer Hardsuit Labs has a large weight on its shoulders to deliver a worthy successor in the aptly named sequel Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2. To meet these standards, the game has seen a slight delay out of Q1 2020.
News comes by way of a blog post on the game’s official website, in which two of Hardsuit Labs’ members Andy Kipling and Brian Mitsoda state that they are pushing the game back for quality control purposes. The blogpost draws attention to the fact that the first game was famously released too early, which hampered some of its potential success and acclaim which eventually came in subsequent years, and as such they want to avoid its sequel suffering the same fate.
Currently the exact date is unknown outside of it still being scheduled for 2020, however the team will be appearing at the Berlin convention PDXCON on 19th of October to share more details about the game’s development overall.
