The return of the creative mind behind the original Bloodlines,
Brian Mitsoda as Lead Narrative Designer, promises fans a worthy successor to the cult classic.
“When I learned that Paradox had acquired the World of Darkness IP, I began to wonder what it would be like to return to Vamprie: The Masquerade,” says Mitsoda. “Our goal from the start was to transfer Bloodlines 2 the trademarks that made Bloodlines unique – the dark tone, atmosphere and humor. I’m sure fans who loved the first game are happy about what we do in Bloodlines 2. ”
“Bloodline fans have been thirsting for a long time, and suggestions – more like demands – have come to our ears from the very beginning of our work with the World of Darkness,” says Ebba Ljungerud, CEO of Paradox Interactive. “We have recognized the possibilities that offered to us. However, essential for us as well as Hardsuit Labs that a sequel not only had to be neat and in the spirit of its predecessor, but also under the guidance of people whose ideas made the original so unique. The work of keeping this title secret for the last few years. A true masquerade for ourselves! So it’s both exciting and relieving that we can finally talk about it now. ”
“We at Hardsuit Labs are proud to have been able to unite a team of industry veterans who worked on blockbuster RPGs and shooters,” adds Andy Kipling, CEO of Hardsuit Labs. “Once we learned that Paradox bought the IP. Started working on pitch, and still thrilled that Paradox immediately recognized. Our passion for the brand and our capabilities. It honors us to be able to do Bloodlines 2 for fans around the world. “
