Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2 was a game that was awaited by many people because it is the sequel of the highly-rated game called Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines. This news was announced by the game developers, Andy Kipling and Brian Mitsoda through an open letter. The company, Hardsuit Labs says that they are committed to releasing a game that is stable as well as polished. The release date of the game has been revealed as well which is some time in 2020 for both PlayStation 4, Consoles And PC.

Developers Reveals The Reason Behind The Delay Of Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2

The first game released back in 2004 was a very buggy game and because of that, they got some criticism. But the developers are trying their best to polish the game and they don’t want to release a game that is full of bugs. The dev team wrote in that open letter “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.

They further added “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.” The storyline of the second game has been written by the same person who wrote the story of the original game which is Mitsoda. The story of the second game takes place takes place in modern-day Washington. It tells the story of a newly-made vampire left to wander a dangerous and powerful subculture.

This is quite good the devs of the game are saying these things clearly to their fans and don’t keep them in the dark about these kinds of things. Many of the developers just release the game in a buggy state and then releases updates to fix it slowly and by the time it gets fixed the player base is gone. Some of the developers in the gaming industry should learn from Hardsuit Labs the meaning of being truthful to their fans.
