Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 Launch Date Pushed Back

It was announced today that the highly anticipated Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 will be released later than originally anticipated. A statement from the developers explain this decision:

“Paradox Interactive and Hardsuit Labs have shifted the launch window for Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. The game will no longer launch in Q1 2020, but later in the year. Over the last few months, it has become clear to Paradox Interactive and Hardsuit Labs that hitting the original launch time frame of Q1 2020 would risk shipping a game that does not meet the ambitions that the developer and publisher share. This decision has been made to ensure that Paradox and Harsuit deliver the best Bloodlines 2 experience possible.”

While this type of news is never great to hear it is typically in the best interest of everyone involved. It is this writer’s opinion that it is better for the game’s launch to be delayed until it is the best that it can be instead of rushing it out to meet the deadline and hope that a couple patches a few weeks later can make it playable. More information about this decision can be found in the developer’s letter to the community.
