Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 Announced

After 15 long years, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is officially announced to come out in 2020.

Based on a Dungeons & Dragons like tabletop RPG title, developer Troika Games and publisher Activision came up with an action role-playing game titled Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines in 2004 that involved blood-sucking vampires.

For long, there were no talks for a sequel and Bloodlines rights went to Paradox Interactive in 2015, who then teamed up with Hardsuit Labs to officially announce Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Despite having potential, the original Bloodlines title got competition from renowned games like Halo 2, Half-Life 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, leading to a market sale of less than a hundred thousand copies worldwide.

Initial pitching of ideas to bring back one of the biggest cult RPGs started even before Paradox acquired the IP for World of Darkness in 2015. Set on city of modern day Seattle, the game will take players to stalk the streets once again as an undead revenant.
