Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 Delayed

Publisher Paradox Interactive and developer Hardsuit Labs announce a setback for Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2, the upcoming RPG sequel. The game was previously expected in first quarter of 2020, but now they say to expect it later in the year. Like vampires, delays suck, but they assure is this is intended to make for a better game. This Dev Blog Post goes into detail, while the announcement has the big picture:
Over the last few months, it has become clear to Paradox Interactive and Hardsuit Labs that hitting the original launch time frame of Q1 2020 would risk shipping a game that does not meet the ambitions that developer and publisher share. This decision has been made to ensure that Paradox and Harsuit deliver the best Bloodlines 2 experience possible.

You can learn more about this decision from Narrative Lead Brian Mitsoda’s letter to the community here: https://www.bloodlines2.com/en/dev-blog-post

Over the course of PDXCON, Paradox’s press and community conference taking place in Berlin, Germany this weekend, Hardsuit Labs and Paradox will give more insight into the development Bloodlines 2 as well as their ambitions for the game. Fans who want to learn more can tune into the Paradox Twitch channel to watch the talks and panels throughout the event at https://www.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive

I am pumped for the game, but I think a delay makes sense. The gameplay videos they have shown have not been impressive. Hopefully the delay will result in a higher quality product.

The fact that you guys think that they would need to delay to "chop out content" is pretty hilarious. This is Paradox we're talking about, they shit out more DLC than a DLC Cow. The plans for how to milk people with DLC have been set for a LONG time.

Delaying to make the game as awesome as possible? Yes.
Delaying to chop out content for extra DLC down the road? ...eh...

Better a delay that sucks than a game that sucks. Seemed like the original release window was pretty ambitious anyway, though, so I don't think most people should be all that surprised.

Makes sense. Why release when there's 100000 other games releasing in Q1 2020?

This was coming out just before Cyberpunk, that's reason enough to change the date...

Janky and wonky were the previews builds. So take extra time to make the game non janky and non wonky.

Blah...blah blah. Vampire

I thought more, 'Why the hell would they release this in the Spring and not around Halloween?' It's the natch time to do it. This makes more sense. I just hope it doesn't mean the game is a dumpster fire.

Honestly. Who DIDN'T see this delay coming? Days after it was announced I posted the release makes 0 sense. A "near AAA game" that began production in aug 2016 and was going to release q1 2020? If you didn't see this delay being announced a MILE away you were sleeping. As I said in my initial post won't be released until at LEAST Q3 2020.

So begins the content cutting and a reduced feature list.

Only to be added back in by one of the 57 DLCs that Paradox has already planned for the game, of course. It's probably the only cause of delay anyway cuz they can't make up their mind how to set up the piecemeal properly. Fuck Paradox.

Just play the original folks; it's patched and content added to death to sublime levels.
