Whose palms these are remains to be one main query. In February 2021, Paradox introduced that it was taking developer Hardsuit Labs off Bloodlines 2, and that it will not make its then-planned 2021 launch.
Previous to that, Bloodlines 2 was introduced with some pleasure and unique Bloodlines author and designer Brian Mitsoda on the undertaking. It even showcased nearly half-hour of gameplay in 2019. Then the undertaking was delayed, citing the necessity for extra time to ship a correct Bloodlines successor.
Mitsoda later left the undertaking, alongside inventive director Ka’ai Cluney and senior narrative designer Cara Ellison. The undertaking was delayed, and after Bloodlines 2 moved out, Hardsuit Labs confronted a spherical of layoffs. Whereas improvement is now continuing, Paradox is declining to call the studio that’s at the moment engaged on it, to allow them to “focus absolutely” on recreation improvement.
The evening carries on
In any case that, Wester’s feedback point out Bloodlines 2 remains to be within the works. We’ll have to attend for extra particulars, it appears, and wait some time longer at that. When requested if followers would get a peak on the undertaking throughout this 12 months’s PDXCon, which runs September 2 via 3, Wester stated not this time.
It’s good to know the undertaking’s nonetheless alive, although it looks like it’s been fairly the journey for all concerned. In feedback made final October, Wester even stated that Bloodlines 2 was nearly cancelled. However apparently a pitch got here in that was convincing sufficient to maintain the Vampire recreation afloat. Hopefully we’ll see what that’s quickly sufficient.
