    If only they had brought on Tim Caine & Leonard Boyarsky to develop VtMB 2... Oh wait, never mind.

    At this point Paradox is likely deeply envious of The Outer Worlds.

    What is the difference? They both will be done in 10 years and both are extremely buggy on release and will cost shit ton of money to their publishers.

    "Sleazy", what's that? It's not in the revised 2021 edition of 'Newspeak'. No wait, there's a small footnote in "Exploitative Cis-Scum".

    If the game never materializes it would be for the best. The worst possible outcome is a completely fucked up release.
    The chance of this being in any way worthwhile have become zero either way.

    Maybe worthwhile to make fun of?

    Even if it hurts?

    There's another WoD of darkness RPG in the works though. Vampire Swansong. It's probably going to be released earlier than Bloodlines 2 at this rate.

    Judging by The Council, it will be a lot better too.

    I've played only the first episode and it was great, but I heard the later episodes became worse.

    The only problem is that it's in Epic's jail, which means it won't exist until release + 1 year after that (still earlier than Bloodlines 2 though).

    After Roguey (I think?) pointed out the Lead Designer posting had gone from Hardsuit, I did a search on LinkedIn to see if there was a new Lead Designer...

    No luck from a casual search, but as a bonus, LinkedIn shows you who used to work at Hardsuit, which would make for a fun complilation aside from the already-known names.

    Swansong apparently references events in Bloodlines 2, so it's meant to be a follow up. At least originally.

    So they're making a sequel to a sequel. One that didn't release yet and probably won't. I'm sorry, is this real life? I think I got off at the wrong station.

    Swansong takes place on the other side of the country. They said there would be easter egg references, that's all.

    - Did you hear about all the things that happened in Seattle?

    - Of course bro I'd give anything to be part of those events we can't describe for some reason.

    - Yeah.

    Bloodlines 2 will be the follow up to its follow up, Swansong.

    Well....the best chance for this game getting released is if it gets looted during the mostly peaceful gathering with molotovs.
