Vampire: The Masquerade- Bloodlines 2 is an upcoming vampire RPG to be released in the 1st quarter of 2020. However on the recently published Dev Blog Post on the game’s official website, game developer Hardsuit Labs stated the current status of the game and an explanation for its change of release date. Check out the full statement below!
To all fans of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2
For the last three and a half years, we’ve worked hard to bring you a worthy successor to Bloodlines 1. To us, that meant not only making good on the ambitions of this remarkable game, but also a duty to ensure we would not repeat its mistakes. Today, we have to tell you that we need some more time to get you the game you’ve been waiting for. Although Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 will still launch in 2020, we have decided to value quality over making the Q1 launch window.
There are some things we wanted to hit under all circumstances when we set out to follow in Bloodlines’ footsteps: A deep, branching storyline; fascinating and amazingly acted characters; the rich universe of the World of Darkness. We firmly believe that we’re on the right track to get you all of this.
On the flip side, there’s the responsibility to avoid some of the issues that plagued the first game, which was famously launched too early. Over the last few months, it became clear that to stick to our original date would risk repeating that mistake. We won’t do that. In the end, everyone working on this game wants to offer you the best Bloodlines 2 we can.
This hasn’t been an easy- nor our first choice. Throughout 2019 we have been improving our processes and growing our teams, however it soon became clear that this alone won’t allow us to deliver the quality we want at the date we promised.
Your feedback was invaluable in this. It helped us give the proper weight to what we saw, as well. We’d like to thank you, and hope you’ll support us in the decision that came from it.
Many of us from Hardsuit Labs will be in Berlin for PDXCON. For those of you going, we look forward to seeing you there! We will be sharing insights into the development of Bloodlines 2 along with other steps we’ve taken to strengthen our development team to realize our ambitions for Bloodlines 2.
For those of you who won’t be there, we will be sharing more about this during the PDXCON Announcement stream on Saturday the 19th. We are also opening up a Reddit thread to answer any of your questions in the Bloodlines stream on the following Sunday.

On the long post, Hardsuit Labs explained that they need more time before they deliver the game a lot of fans are anticipating for and they don’t want to repeat the issues and mistakes plagued on its predecessor. The game was originally planned to be released in the 1st quarter of next year and now it was changed into later 2020.
Some fans might be disappointed because their waiting period got extended but that’s better especially if it’s for the betterment of the game. Pre-order is still available here at Playasia.
Vampire: The Masquerade- Bloodlines 2 is the successor of the iconic vampire RPG Vampire: The Masquerade- Bloodlines released for PC in 2004. The game is still based on the tabletop role-playing game Vampire: The Masquerade published by White Wolf Publishing, the same as its predecessor.
This upcoming action role-playing game is developed by Hardsuit Labs and published by Paradox Interactive. The game is mainly played in a first person-perspective and alternates to third-person for contextual activities like specific attacks.
