In explaining the decision to delay the release date for Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, the team cites its focus on building a deep, complex world that “features lots of characters, choices, dialogues, and opportunities to decide how the story plays.” The statement concludes that the delay was “necessary to ensure the highest possible quality while retaining a healthy work-life balance for our team.”
In delaying the game by a couple of months, Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong buys some time for polish, and avoids a very crowded February for game releases. With a bit of breathing room and what should be a better final game, this release date delay will hopefully be an outright winning decision for Big Bad Wolf Studios.
