Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 Re-Reveal Set for PAX West, Launching in October – Rumour

Paradox Interactive could re-reveal the RPG at PAX West, while the Plaion store lists an October release for the game.

After several delays following its 2019 announcement, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 hit a major stumbling block behind the scenes when publisher Paradox Interactive announced in early 2021 that original developer Hardsuit Labs had been taken off the project, and that it had been indefinitely delayed. It seems, however, that it won’t be long before we get a long-overdue update on the RPG- and maybe even a release date.

Paradox Interactive is indicating that the game will be re-revealed at PAX West, asking fans to keep an eye on the event in a recent tweet, where it promises “many surprises and reveals”. Significantly, earlier this year, Paradox confirmed that Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 would be re-revealed in September. PAX West is set for September 1-4.

What’s more, it seems like the game could launch not long after its PAX West unveiling. As spotted by @GamerTrader1 on Twitter, the online store of distributor Plaion (which will be distribution the game’s physical copies in some European regions) has updated its listing for the game, and now mentions an October 27 launch date (we recently saw something similar with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2), while the listing also showcases a batch of new screenshots.

In November last year, Paradox Interactive CEO Fredrik Wester stated there was a good chance Bloodlines 2 could launch sometime in 2023.

It’s currently unknown who took over development of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 after Hardsuit Labs was taken off the project, but the publisher has previously said that the project is “in good hands.”
