Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 hit with a delay

Earlier this year, Paradox Interactive and Hardsuit Labs surprised us all by announcing a sequel to Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines.

Unfortunately, those of you who have already waited 15 years for Bloodlines 2 will have to wait a little longer, as the game has been hit with a delay.
