Things weren't looking good for Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. The sequel to the cult classic released back in 2004 couldn't catch a break. The sequel was announced back in March 2019 with a small trailer. It was supposed to be out by Q1 2020 but was delayed to the end of this year. And then, another delay pushed it to 2021. No actual release date or release window was specified.

Paradox Interactive CEO Ebba Ljungerud recently gave an interview. The interview revealed the estimated release date. The CEO said that the game will launch sometime in the second half of 2021. While there's an estimate, it still leaves a lot to speculation. But we can remove the first six months from our expectations.

Although Ljungerud didn’t mention the actual reason for the delay, he did hint at next-gen consoles. He claimed that both Sony and Microsoft didn’t provide them with development kits. So, they didn’t have the means to port the game to next-gen consoles back then. And now the new consoles are available to consumers, the actual development likely started.

“To be able to develop for the next generation, you have to have development kits from the manufacturers. And I'm pretty sure that both Sony and Microsoft were affected by the pandemic because they did not have many development kits.” Ljungerud said in the interview.

That was not the only issue Bloodlines 2 faced. A few months ago, the creative director and lead writer of the game left the studio. The big shake in the leadership would possibly affect the game.

The original interview was on Placera .
