A good vampire-themed game is hard to find, and it seems that one more title has been delayed. The long-awaited sequel of Vampire: The Masquerade was announced in 2019, but in August 2020, we were told to expect it no sooner than in 2021. Now it’s delayed once again, and hardly will we see it before summertime.

Paradox Interactive seems to have Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 go through development hell. At least, there is nothing definite Ebba Ljungerud of Paradox Interactive could say about the release date. There is even no guarantee it will be ready on a certain day in the second half of 2021.

Worth the Wait?

Originally, it was supposed to be released in May 2020 and to have been around for about six months. But it’s not the first time this vampire-themed RPG was moved. Well, vampires live long, they sleep in coffins, they cannot see their reflections in the mirror, and they have all the time in the world to spend waiting. The problem is players are not actual vampires.

The good part of it is that the game is meant to be technically superior to its predecessor, due to ray tracing, DLSS, and – if it matters – mods support. Maybe when the developers overcome these issues, the result will be as impressive as it deserves to be.
