The Vampire: The Masquerade video games sure are cursed hot potatoes, being that they’re getting pushed back bit by bit.
First it was Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, which has a “TBA” stamp on its release date due to its recent issues with its main designers/writers leaving. Now we have the other title, Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, also being pushed back.
The upcoming RPG from publisher Nacon and developer Big Bad Wolf Studio will be out on 19th May 2022 instead of February for PC (Epic Games), PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Here’s the press statement:
“This wasn’t a decision we took lightly, but one necessary to ensure the highest possible quality while retaining a healthy work-life balance for our team. Granted, the pandemic also threw a couple of wrenches into our planning, but this delay will allow us to apply some additional polish and give us some extra time for QA. We’re a small but very passionate team, eager to create an immersive experience that rivals the sort of personal storytelling you’d experience from a great tabletop session. One that leaves you with questions long after the credits have stopped rolling (but a reason to go back and see how things could have been different).”
What are the chances this small team RPG will be out before Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2? Place your bets, everyone!
