Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 is a title that was somewhat sinking under the radar with a supposed Q1 2020 launch on PlayStation 4. Fighting for exposure amongst the likes of fellow RPGs Cyberpunk 2077 and Final Fantasy VII Remake, it may not have gotten the attention it deserves. Developer Hardsuit Labs need not worry about that problem anymore, however, as the studio has decided to delay the game.
It'll still launch at some point next year, but as stated in the team's latest blog post, it didn't want to repeat the same mistakes that were made with the original title's launch. Despite improving its processes and growing the studio with more and more staff throughout 2019, Andy Kipling and Brian Mitsoda both agree that the upcoming vampire simulator needs more time in development.
This now assumedly puts the game in a position where it'll release just before the next-gen PlayStation 5. We doubt the team will have time to work on a PS5 version before getting the current-gen experience out the door, but at least we'll still be able to play it on our new consoles through backwards compatibility.
