Publisher Paradox Interactive and developer Hardsuit Labs have announced that Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 has been delayed to sometime in 2021.
This is the second time the game has been postponed, as it was initially planned to launch sometime in late 2020 before its initial delay.
In a message posted to Twitter, the developer said that they needed “more time” to “ensure the best player experience possible”.

This is an expected decision on the publisher and developer’s part, considering how packed the Holiday 2020 season will be with not only the launch of next-gen consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X, but also the launch of similar rival immersive sim RPGs that serve as competition, such as CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 in November 2020.
Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 is slated to release for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC sometime in 2021. In the meantime, check out the latest trailer below.
