This isn’t the game’s first delay. Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 was initially set to launch in March 2020, but the game was then pushed back to release at some point later this year. Today, it was announced that it would not hit the 2020 release window, giving us a release timeframe of merely “2021.”
The sequel takes place in 21st-century Seattle, where you play as a newly turned vampire and must make difficult decisions of how you want to survive with your new thirst and need for blood.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is set to come to all major platforms, including new- gen consoles.
