HardSuit Labs and Paradox Interactive have officially announced that Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 release date has been pushed back to 2021 to ensure the best player experience possible.

The release date for highly-anticipated RPG Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 has been moved to 2021, the developer HardSuit Labs and publisher Paradox Interactive announced via Twitter. The specific release date has not been shared, meaning that the game could arrive at any point in 2021. 

Paradox Interactive and HardSuit labs explained the decision by saying that the main goal of the team was to bring the best possible game to hardcore Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines fans and to achieve this, they will need more time.

"Due to the quality bar and ambitions we have set for ourselves, we have made a difficult decision that we need more time," it is written in the statement. "This means that our goal to release in 2020 is no longer possible."

They also said that this decision has not taken lightly and it was not the only option they considered. As for the new release date, Paradox and HardSuit Labs say they will share more details about the launch timing and other organizational changes in the upcoming months.

This suggests that another development team could jump in to help HardSuit Labs. It is also possible that a change inside the development team is happening but at the moment, this is just a speculation.
