Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 Switches Developers February 23, 2021

I’m afraid the hardships that have been brought to the upcoming game Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 are continuing. The game’s publisher has confirmed today that it has switched developers. Hardsuit Labs will no longer be developing the game, and development of the game will continue with an entirely different studio. This has the side effect of delaying the game’s release until at least 2022. Preorders for the game will also be stopped at this time.

Never in the twenty years of me covering the gaming industry have I ever seen an announcement of this kind. While I have heard cases of game development switching hands, it has always been for unannounced games, or games that were still very early in production. This game was originally planned for its release last year, and over the past few months its lost its major leading staff. It had a preorder campaign set up with major retailers. Who knows what that means for the game’s eventual release, or if any of the footage of the game we saw up to this point will even end up in the final version of the game?

If we hear more news, we will be reporting on it. Until then, you might have to manually cancel your preorder, or move it to a different game.

Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 is coming in 2022.
