    To say that Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 is suffering from a rough development cycle would be an understatement. The game has faced multiple delays since its initial reveal, had one of its writers and their content removed from the game following sexual assault allegations, the creative director left the team, and now, the game has been pushed back yet another year, while also stripping developer Hardsuit Labs from the project. Publisher Paradox Interactive announced that Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 would no longer be releasing in 2021, delaying it indefinitely. Hardsuit Labs has been replaced, though Paradox did not specify who the new developer is.

    hopefully, they get a new team that wants to make a video game and not push an agenda. I see it delayed at least 2-3 years

    Disappointing and even more disappointing that they wouldn't even tell us about the new developers. Still, if this game turns out well because of this, it would have been worth it. I just hope the game doesn't turn out bad or just disappear altogether.

    I hope we will still get updates this year.

    Welp. One of the games I was dying to try this year. Here’s hoping they get it right, the World of Darkness is due for a solid game. Hopefully they don’t tag in the team behind Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood

    Yikes, a game that has potential per se, being in hands of the wrong people, that's sad.

    I have lost all my hope when Mitsoda got fired, so I really don't care anymore.

    Come on, a few more years of drama to topple Duke Nukem Forever as the dumpster fire of gaming.

    Well, the developers they dropped seem to have only did one other game.

    Better cancelled than wrongly made. Hopefully it ressurects in the future.

    It looked like woke trash. Some one had enough brains to tell them enough is enough and stepped in.
