A sequel to the cult classic is coming in 2020.
Paradox Interactive has announced Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, currently in development by Hardsuit Labs. The announcement came towards the tail end of GDC 2019, alongside a CG trailer for the game.
Bloodlines 2 is a sequel to the 2004 game of the same name, originally developed by Troika Games. Brian Mitsoda, the original story lead, is returning to work with Hardsuit Labs as their Lead Narrative Designer for the project. “Our aim has been to carry on the signature themes that made Bloodlines unique,” Mitsoda says, “particularly its dark tone, atmosphere, and humor – and I think that fans of the original will love what we’re doing with Bloodlines 2 .”
Set to launch in 2020 on consoles and PC, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 has been in development since 2015 and will feature full mod support on from Paradox Plaza. You can read our impressions of a 30-minute live demo here.
