Paradox ARG Teasing New Vampire: The Masquerade Game?

On its surface, the new Tender Website appears to be another online dating dealie, hoping to get in on some of that left- and right-swiping that constitutes romance in the modern era. There seems to be more to this, however, as the Game Detectives Wiki makes the case that this is an ARG from Paradox Interactive, the actual operators of the site (Paradox owns the copyright, and you can sign in with your Paradox account). As with most ARGs, this is somewhat arcane and complicated, so thanks Destructoid for summarizing the theory that this is a tease for an upcoming return to the Vampire: The Masquerade license, last visited by Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines, the action/RPG that sucked the last drops of blood from Troika Games back in 2005. Here's word:

All right so theory time. White Wolf is the publisher of the famous Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop RPG series. Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines is one of the most popular Western RPGs in PC history and the series has gone untapped in the video game world since then. White Wolf Publishing technically owns the license for V:TM and its accompanying universe, the World of Darkness. I say technically because after a controversial chapter was published in the 2018 version of the V:TM tabletop book, Paradox Interactive gutted the company and assumed command.

With Dungeons and Dragons now fully back in the cultural zeitgeist, as well as Cyberpunk 2020 getting a video game adaptation, we are in a new age of video games based on existing tabletop series. I wonder if the World of Darkness is the next series to get some modern love? Guess we'll find out over the next six to eight weeks. Which by the way, six to eight weeks takes us to the second half of March into the first week of April. That's nowhere near E3 or PDXCon, so any speculation on that date is welcome.
