Paradox Interactive and Hardsuit Games have announced a second delay for Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. According to the teams, this highly anticipated game will now release sometime in 2021.
This is the second delay for Bloodlines 2. The game was originally meant to come out in May 2020. However, in October 2019, Paradox and Hardsuit delayed the game from May 2020 to simply 2020. The teams reassured fans back then that Bloodlines 2 was still targeting a 2020 release date.

As the official announcement reads, this delay is due to the quality bar and ambitions the team has set for Bloodlines 2. Since the team requires more time in order to fulfill its vision, the game will now release sometime in 2021. Once again, there is no specific ETA on when it will come out.
Truth be told, the game will most likely benefit from this delay. As we wrote in August 2019, the game had major performance/optimization issues. Moreover, its animations needed additional polish and work.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is a first-person RPG in which players will immerse themselves in the World of Darkness and live out their vampire fantasy in a city filled with intriguing characters that react to their choices. According to the game’s description, their unique disciplines are a weapon in their forward-driving, fast-moving, melee-focussed combat system.
From what we know so far, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 will also support Ray Tracing, DLSS and mods at launch.
Stay tuned for more!
