I will pre-order this. Loved Vampire: The Masquerade Redemption, too.

Maybe finally Weps5 could retire, or at least move on to a new game. :)

Just how big was the game way back in the day? Honestly, I've never heard of the original and now I see this announcement popping up everywhere, here's just one more example out of hundreds out there : https://www.eneba.com/blog/finally-vamp ... g-in-2020/

And what kind of a curse is that?

Thus far everyone who's tried to make a World of Darkness game has failed spectacularly, usually dragging the company down with it.

Nihilistic kept on going years after Redemption, though their games weren't generally liked by critics.

Why do people pre-order? There's rarely any incentive at all, and if there *is* an incentive it's usually freemium/mtx rubbish that only serves to make the whole thing worse overall anyway.

They're not going to run out of stock! There is no need to reserve your copy!

Early access.
Access to beta.
sometimes physical perks.

to name a few.

Now I don't believe in pre-ordering 1 year in advance.

For the last three and a half years, we’ve worked hard to bring you a worthy successor to Bloodlines 1. To us, that meant not only making good on the ambitions of this remarkable game, but also a duty to ensure we would not repeat its mistakes. Today, we have to tell you that we need some more time to get you the game you’ve been waiting for. Although Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 will still launch in 2020, we have decided to value quality over making the Q1 launch window.

Delays in game releases might be good.
