In 2020, it's no surprise when an anticipated video game (or movie, or television show) gets pushed back, but when the sequel to a cult classic like Vampire: The Masquerade severs ties with its creative leads only a few months before its intended release, well, it raises a lot of questions.

Who is Brian Mitsoda and how is his removal a dilution of the connection between Bloodlines 2 and its predecessor?

Why was he fired, and who is his replacement, Alex Mandryka?

Why was a firing made last month only reported on now?

And just how does Paradox plan to market this masquerade?

The thumbnail was almost "Vampire Decapitated"...in Virtual Legality.
