Another Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 Delay

This tweet offers "an important announcement in regards to the release date" for Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2. Last October it was announced the release was being pushed back from Q1 of this year to late 2020, but now the action/RPG sequel is expected next year. Here is the message from Andy Kipling of Hardsuit Labs and Jakob Munthe of Paradox Interactive:
WE ARE MOVING THE LAUNCH OF VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE - BLOODLINES 2 TO 2021.

Our goal has always been to deliver the best game possible, to a mercy you into a Seattle re-imagined in the World of Darkness, and deliver a worthy successor to the original Bloodlines game. Due to the quality bar and ambitions we have set for ourselves, we have made the difficult decision that we need more time. This means that our goal to release in 2020 is no longer possible. Moving launch is one of the changes we are making to ensure the best player experience possible.

This is not a decision taken lightly nor is it the first option we considered. We will share more information in the coming months on launch timing and other organizational changes that will help us achieve this goal.

We understand that this will be a disappointment to many of you, but we also appreciate how our ambition is echoed through many parts of the community. We hope you understand that, while difficult, this is the right call.

We thank you all for your patience while we continue to build Bloodlines 2.
