Ah fuck it, I'll better wait for Avowed from Obsidian.


Or the Cyberpunk (in my case).  :rock:

The only other thing I can think of is maybe they needed to save money and his writing was no longer required ?
I know Brian Mitsoda is the most important figure and therefore biggest lost but Brian Mitsoda wasn´t the only one who was fired / or get a new job within Paradox.
Bloodlines 2 have lost the Lead Narrative Designer Brian Mitsoda, Creative Director Ka’ai Cluney, Producer Christian Schlüter and Florian Schwarzer. Those are 4 four we know of.

I don't want to speculate either but as a long time player of Paradox's games (EU, HoI, CK) I know it's not always fine and dandy behind the scenes at Paradox. And the circumstances are rather fishy regarding Mitsoda. Nothing would surprise me at the moment...

Also it was brought to my attention that the content summary on steam was changed back in May, not sure what to make of it. But I fear that there will be at least some rewrites and some content might get axed. I hope this assumption is wrong, but who knows.Oh btw. they are looking for a new Systems Designer since end of July.

I'll admit, that was pretty sweet for a cinematic trailer :rock:


As for Bloodlines 2, I'll wait to hear Outstar's response on the matter.

She works for World of Darkness / Paradox now. She can´t possible made an informative statement.

Me too.  Either way I've played and enjoyed more of Obsidian's games more, and I hope this game is good.

Sure you did, considering that is former Troika, and Black Isle, that's why I don't like when things are leaving south-west, there's nothing better than cactuses, rattlesnakes and nuclear wastes  :justabite:

Thanks for clearing it up Wilhelm. I don't know honestly what to do with this yet.

I don't think I've ever felt like I had to boycott a game like this but... I just might have to :58_83:
Mentioned this to my lad and within mins he was on the ball with this with Troika ex blah blah etc I even got a call lmao Thanks Mr Mitsoda. Worth £49.99 that haha 🤣🤣🤣

They fired him for one reason. They want to water down the lore. I'm far from a lore whore. But, I'm betting that is the case. so, they can push out sub par shit.

Shiny games and all that aren't what matters. Lets appeal to the masses. Oh wait but your core fanbase absolutely, do not give a fuck now.
R.I.P...

She did shut down the sex scandal rumors though. Stem and root.

Obviously we need to be skeptical but Paradox / WOD needs to say something on the matter. Otherwise I won't be buying BL2. Can't speak for everyone else but that's just how things are now.

So somebody claims a translator has some info about the situation:

Skeptical. That info certainly feeds into the narrative of the anti-woke crowd.

Complete rubbish. You don't leak something after waiting for a press release; if that's something you want to do you do it anyway. But I guess it fits nicely with the (completely baseless) "PDX have gone mad with woke and DLC!" narrative some people are into, so inevitably people will buy into it ...

Where did this come from? I don't think starting a production in 2017 to finish it by 2018 is realistic at all (even if it's beginning of 2017 and end of 2018, that's just two years, which is unlikely for an RPG, let alone a first person one), or do they mean production "under Paradox"?
