Yes, you read the headline right. Paradox Interactive revealed today that Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 will be released in March 2020 for PC (including Steam), PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
If that wasn’t enough to get you hyped on the game, I will drop two names: Brian Mitsoda and Chris Avellone. Yes, once again, you read that right. We might not have Troika back among us, but at the very least, the genius who created the first Bloodlines is the Lead Narrative Designer for this newly minted sequel, and not only that, but he’s working with Avellone. The game’s development is being handled by Hardsuit Labs.
Oh, and in times when PC storefront exclusivity is a thing, Paradox Interactive has wisely chosen to publish Bloodlines 2 on all the stores they could (GOG, Steam, Epic Games Store and their own Paradox Store).
Sired in an act of vampire terrorism, your existence ignites the war for Seattle’s blood trade. Enter uneasy alliances with the creatures who control the city and uncover the sprawling conspiracy which plunged Seattle into a bloody civil war between powerful vampire factions.
