Paradox (*2*) say they’re pleased with progress on Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, but they’re still refusing to say who’s making it. The subject got here up once more in the course of the Swedish writer’s Q3 interim report, in response to the query, “Any information on Bloodlines 2 or its developer?”
You can see the response within the video recording. Paradox CFO Alexander Bricca responded by saying, first, “No, not a lot.”
“The new developer is doing fairly properly and we’re pleased with the progress on the undertaking now,” he continued. “But it is still fairly a while earlier than we will begin to speak about launch dates, so we desire to provide the studio a scenario the place they’ll focus absolutely on the sport growth and never having to handle followers reaching out to them. So subsequently now we have not disclosed the title of the studio and we’re very pleased to maintain it that manner for still a while.”
Bloodlines 2 was initially in growth by Seattle-based developer Hardsuit Labs. After a few years and a few tough-trying demos, the sport’s narrative lead (and unique Bloodlines author) was fired in August 2020. Development continued till it switched builders to the brand new, unnamed studio in February 2021.
I can not consider one other occasion like this, the place a recreation has been introduced but the developer has been saved secret. The most evident guess for who might need taken over the undertaking could be Harebrained Schemes. The builders of the Shadowrun Trilogy (and extra not too long ago Battletech) at the moment are wholly owned by Paradox (*2*) and have expertise making RPGs. I’ve no data to counsel who it is, nonetheless. Maybe I’m making it.
