Developing Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 was a bit tricky in a nutshell. Asma Kabir left the project last year in connection with accusations of sexual assault and other reasons. Difficulties led Paradox to pull emergency brakes in February and remove Hardsuit Labs developers from the project. However, work has progressed since then and the situation appears to be relatively under control. However, he was very close to scrapping the entire project in terms of removing the developers from the game. In an interview with Nyhetsbyrån live, Paradox CEO Fredrik Wester, among others, said this about the situation:
“When we picked up the game from the original developer, we had a lengthy review in case we should finish the game or play it further. Then we were really ready to shut down production completely. But we got a ‘presentation’ that we thought was compelling enough to run. High hopes that it will be a good match that will meet the expectations of the players.”
Paradox has yet to tell when the game will be released sharply and we also don’t know which studio is currently working on the game. But it continues anyway.
