    Wasn't Gehenna confirmed to be nothing more than a hoax in the updated lore?

    It went from "world ending" to "periodically very uncomfortable for powerful vampires".

    I stick to the idea that Gehenna is cyclical in nature, and it's rolling around again. The antediluvians date back to about 10000 years ago. But not only is Caine is a full order of magnitude older than that, pretty much the entire Fourth Generation is only 4000-5000 years old, with some not even being born before Christ did. So where did all of those vampires go?

    That's how gay vampires roar in the sweet throes of unbridled passion.

    Don't listen to Roguey spreading fake news implying this game will never see release. Work continues and Paradox is going to make this the best game in the WoD franchise.

    At this point they'd better deliver a mega turd rather than lukewarm diarrhea. If they deliver, it will serve as a warning to future generations and as cornucopia of entertainment. If they won't, it will simply be forgotten (but not by us) as mediocre.

    It's from V5's Camarilla sourcebook and mentioned once in the entire book, in p. 156 to be exact.

    Paradox however made a full ARG with it, they even made a big reveal event, ARG and even a real life maze for some hand picked fans to ''reveal the secrets'', it was some big shit show.

    People will keep jumping ship until it is empty with a single blood-stained artifact in the center, the one that it's all about, until Hardsuit Labs is renamed to Elizabeth Dane.

    All these shenanigans really makes Bloodlines all the more impressive. They really are cementing it as an all time work of genius by trying to recreate it.

    We can see clearly now that:

    - Setting is by and for colossal perverts.
    - Everything that was once interesting about the setting has been retconned for no reason.
    - Nobody gives a shit about gay vampires any more.
    - Making video games is hard.

    Troika had that midas touch.

    It's possible that with the new shifts in development, they need him full-time onsite and his work won't be over for a while?

    I can't imagine Harebrained wouldn't take a dev back if Hardsuit fails, so I don't think it's a bad move if he's getting paid/bribed more to work at Hardsuit.

    Are we supposed to know this guy/chick/whatever the fuck it is? The name sounds familiar, but I can't put my finger on it.

    Writer for Mass Effect Andromeda? Oh, joy. They replaced Brian with her. This is just comedy turned drama. Or vice versa.
