Ya know, I'm not even surprised at this point. World of Darkness is cursed.
I'd completely forgotten about this game. It's been in my wishlist on Steam for a couple of years. I'd be surprised if it ever releases tbh
I was looking forward to this game, but all I see are devs leaving, delays, and now they're switching developers completely. It doesn't sound good.
I'm still hyped to play, if it ever releases. I suppose I'll play the first one while I wait.
Man, this franchise is cursed. Even the first one had the same problems.
The original's biggest issue is that the developer, Troika, was using an unfinished build of the source engine and were left to just "make it work". They were having issues with scripting and other elements of the design. It literally released right alongside Half-Life 2, making it the second Source game ever released, albeit a much rougher, less feature complete version of the engine. At that point Activision just wanted something on the shelf, but another six months with a now full version of Source would have done so much for the game.
This is never a good sign.
Good, that last team was a dumpster fire. Ever since the first demo they showed off its been panned as looking terrible. I just hope whoever is working on it now at least knows what they're doing.
Reading more about this, I think it's not releasing, period.
By the time this game comes out, I will have completely forgotten about it.
