The post notes that the extra time will ensure that the game lives up to the legacy of the original Bloodlines game. That includes branching storylines and both character and world building. There’s also a nod to the original’s games infamous buggy state – “there’s the responsibility to avoid some of the issues that plagued the first game, which was famously launched too early,” explains the post.
Hardsuit Labs hasn’t detailed how many months Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 will be delayed by, but promises more details at PDXCON on Saturday, October 21. There will also be a Reddit AMA held the following Sunday to help answer fan questions.
Since its announcement earlier this year, we’ve seen plenty from Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, including Seattle’s shadowy nightlife and plenty of gameplay. It seems like it’s a great time to be an RPG fan again, even if we have to wait a little longer than we first thought.
