Sharkmob, the game studio responsible for Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt, a battle royale spin-off, has recently announced that they will no longer be developing the game. Despite having a dedicated and passionate player base, the game did not attract enough players to sustain ongoing development.
Moving forward, Sharkmob will shift its attention to new projects and focus on maintaining the game’s servers in the background. However, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt will continue to be available for as long as there is an active player community, and the studio encourages players to continue enjoying the game.
Sharkmob expressed their gratitude towards the engaged community but stated that they were unable to reach the necessary player base to justify further development. Consequently, they made the difficult decision to halt the ongoing development of Bloodhunt.
Nevertheless, the game servers will remain operational, and Sharkmob plans to introduce an in-game player voting system to unlock new content and keep the game fresh. Although specific details about the voting system and the nature of the new content are not yet disclosed, the studio will provide more information when these updates are implemented.
In addition, Sharkmob announced that the ability to make real-money purchases within the game will be disabled starting from September 26, 2023. Instead, players will have improved opportunities to earn in-game tokens through regular gameplay, allowing them to unlock cosmetics without spending actual money.
While the decision to cease development on Bloodhunt was undoubtedly challenging, Sharkmob assures players that they have learned valuable lessons from this experience, which will inform their future game development endeavors.
More information about the final update for Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt is expected to be released in the coming months.
