Delays

It's fair to say that Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 has been delayed a lot of times.

Originally set for an Early 2020 release after being announced in 2019, the game was pushed to 2020.

A PS5 and Xbox Series S/X release was announced in May 2020, with the game getting a new release window of Fall 2020.
