Samantha Wallschlaeger will take over the position.
The hope was that this year we would get the sequel to the cult hit, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. Alas, it was not to be be, as the game was one of many high profile titles to eventually be hit with the delay hammer to 2021. But it also seems as if there is some degree of turmoil behind the scenes as well, as several high profile members of the development team have left. For instance, the Creative Director Lead Narrative Designer were both let go. It definitely raises some eyebrows about the state of the project, but it does seem as if one of those spots has been filled.
On her Twitter, Samatha Wallschlaeger announced that she had become the new Lead Narrative Designer at Hardsuit Labs. She’s worked for several developers in the past, including BioWare and Monolith.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is set to release at some point in 2021 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC and Stadia.
Guess what, y’all? I’m now the lead narrative designer at Hardsuit Labs!! 🎉🎉🎉
At this point, I’ll just be supporting my new team in whatever tiny ways I can. But I’m so excited for future stuff, and so happy to be working with these wonderful folks!
