The World of Darkness RPG was set to be out in February, but Big Bad Wolf needs a little more time.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, the in-development tale of politics, intrigue, and blood that is not Bloodlines 2, has been delayed again. Following a postponement earlier this year that saw it moved to February 2022, developer Big Bad Wolf has announced that it needs a little more time, and has pushed it to May.
“This wasn’t a decision we took lightly, but one necessary to ensure the highest possible quality while retaining a healthy work-life balance for our team,” the studio said. “Granted, the pandemic also threw a couple of wrenches into our planning, but this delay will allow us to apply some additional polish and give us some extra time for QA. We’re a small but very passionate team, eager to create an immersive experience that rivals the sort of personal storytelling you’d experience from a great tabletop session.”

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is the World of Darkness RPG that gets the attention, but Swansong could be a surprise sleeper hit. Big Bad Wolf’s previous game, The Council, is a narrative RPG about an 18th century secret society, and it’s really quite good: There are shortcomings, including dodgy voice acting and a lack of polish, but the writing, dialog, and character development are top notch. It forgoes the more action-focused aspects of some RPGs, but the scheming and intrigue seems like a perfect fit for the shadowy world of the Camarilla.
Another upside to the delay: It gets Swansong out of February, which is on track to be a very big month for new game releases, including Sifu, Destiny 2: The Witch King, Elden Ring, and possibly others.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong is now slated to come out on May 19, and will be an Epic Games Store exclusive at launch. Find out more at vampire-swansong.com.

Rockstar Games Angers Red Dead Redemption 2 Fans With New Red Dead Online Update – ComicBook.com

Published

By Tyler Fischer – January 18, 2022 06:11 pm EST
Red Dead Online players have been upset with Rockstar Games for months due to not only the lackluster support of Red Dead Redemption 2’s online mode, but the lack of communication from Rockstar in regards to the game. At the start of the month, this frustration bubbled up and #SaveRedDeadOnline began to trend on Twitter. Since then, it’s randomly trended several times and fans pushing the campaign have dominated the replies of any and all tweets from Rockstar Games. And today’s tweet about the new Red Dead Online update has been no exception. 
Right on schedule, today, Rockstar Games revealed and released a weekly update for Red Dead Online. And like every weekly update for months, it’s an underwhelming one that is hardly worth promoting, especially during a Twitter campaign against the game that takes umbrage with the lack of compelling updates. Again, the Twitter campaign also takes issue with the lack of communication from Rockstar Games, who has yet to say a word about any of the recent backlash. So, to the surprise of nobody, the tweet about today’s update has caught the ire of fans. 
This week, completing any Blood Money Opportunity with a Persistent Posse in tow will land you a Reward for 25 Capitale within 72 hours of completion.

“How about you actually respond to your entire community instead of posting this and acting like you don’t see it,” reads one popular reply to the tweet. “We don’t need announcements on these terrible event weeks. We want new stuff to buy and new content, your guys’ lack of communication is so sad, to be honest.”
Bruh, i think the Red Dead Online community are after something else, idk, maybe check your mentions?
This isn’t the first time Red Dead Online fans have protested on Twitter over the state of the game, however, it is, by far, the biggest and most prolonged protest. Yet, so far, it seems to be falling on deaf ears.
As always, we will keep you updated. If Rockstar Games responds to the ongoing campaign or announces anything noteworthy for Red Dead Online that could satiate the backlash, we will update you with everything you need to know. In the meantime, feel free to leave a comment or two letting us know what you think or, alternatively, hit me up on Twitter @Tyler_Fischer_ to talk all things gaming. What do you think about the current state of Red Dead Online and do you think Rockstar Games will attempt to salvage it?
