Troika Games was supposed to release more than just one Vampire: The Masquerade game but the cruel fate wouldn't have it.

Tim Cain, one of the three co-founders of Troika Games, recently dug up some old documents about the flawed masterpiece from the early 2000s, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines , revealing that it wasn't supposed to be the only game in the series.

In fact, Activision approached Troika, wanting to know the plans for the future, and that particular future was meant to be about surviving the fallout of the mess in Los Angeles, caused by the events in the first game.

The two sequels were supposed to be called Exodus and Final Nights. 

Exodus would take place in Barstow, a place much smaller than LA as you try to survive the onslaught of creatures of the night coming after you and this town increases your chance of survival because not many vampires are likely to end up there.

Last Nights returns to a flashy place and this time around it's the Sin City itself - Las Vegas. Player character is about to move out of Barstow but things go wrong quickly and they scramble to survive once again.

In the meantime, they are not the only vampire on the run - the happenings in the first game have kicked off a cascade of events that are apparently leading to Gehenna, the end of the world for vampires.

One of the heralds of this end is the return of Cain, the OG vampire, so that makes the fact it never happened even more tragic as we would love to have a few more conversations with the eerily charming and oddly well-informed cabbie from Bloodlines.
