to announce that Vampire: The Masquerade -
is being delayed again. Word is the World of Darkness RPG is now
due on May 19, 2022:
With Swansong, we are taking the narrative-RPG
formula so core to our studio DNA and scaling up as we adapt the systems from
the Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop into a video game experience. The political
intrigue and supernatural mystery baked into the setting are perfect fit for the
story we want to tell.
Our focus is on crafting a world that draws you in, that requires you to
make difficult decisions and live with the consequences. Swansong features lots
of characters, choices, dialogues, and opportunities to decide how the story
plays and our ultimate focus is on quality. With this in mind, we've made the
difficult decision to delay the launch of Vampire: The Masquerade Swansong from
February 2022 to May 2022.
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 are 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 credit credits have stopped rolling (but a reason to go back and
see how things could have been different).
Vampire: The Masquerade Swansong will be available on May 19th. 2022.
We can't wait to share more with you, so stay tuned. Thank you very much for
your patience and all of your support.
