Title: E3 is canceled so when is the next gameplay reveal...?
Post by: Wilhelm-Streicher on March 11, 2020, 05:53:35 pm
E3 is canceled because we all know because of what. I assume the Gamescom will be next one.

So the big question when will we see new gameplay?

Shit ! Didn't think about that...

I guess they'll just release it online ? Or perhaps in some other con ? Can't imagine where though since the covid probably isn't going away anytime soon.

My guess would be also a livestream or Paradox Direct if you will. Maybe for Bloodlines 2 as a product!!! This could be a good thing so they can focus and save money for an expensive demo. What a bummer, I was really looking forward for a awesome E3 2020 Bloodlines 2 demo. But gaming isn´t the most important thing in the world so i can fully understand this decision.

New gameplay would be cool to see, although I kind of wish we'd also get a more specific release date to go with that reveal. I feel like my imagination is starting to run too wildl, so I need some concrete info to cool down.  :justabite:

I don´t think what this would happen soon. Especially after this decision from Paradox CEO Ebba Ljungerud:"As the health and safety of our staff is our number 1 priority, and we all have a shared responsibility to limit spread of the COVID-19 virus I have decided to ask all @PdxInteractive staff  to work from home and postponing all travel and conference appearances for the time being."https://twitter.com/ebbalj/status/1237721577761931264 (https://twitter.com/ebbalj/status/1237721577761931264)
Of course this could have less effect when feared but who knows at this point? Also Hardsuit Labs is a Seattle company and the situation in Seattle and Washington, well it doesn´t look good at the moment.

That's sad to hear. Hopefully things don't get too crazy, like around here.

Let´s hope so but like you said the current situation around the world is crazy. Who knows what will happen in a few days or hours?

Well, I expect the numbers will go up everywhere and more countries will restrict movement (inside and outside their borders), and then things will slow down enough to be manageable.

Well, I am Italian and I am going through a Brujah playthrough in VTMB... But only because I already completed my usual Malkavian run. :^
So, really, Bloodlines 2 would still be much appreciated at some point! XD

Well this escalates quickly. I hope that everybody is well.

@Wilhelm-Streicher: Same for you. We're currently on our 2nd day out of 15 total quarantine decree here in Peru.

Well it's no surprise.  A lot of sporting events are canceled here in America, and many movie theaters are closed too.  Anyway I hope everyone is safe and healthy with their loved ones.  Take Care!

Meanwhile, the remake of Resident Evil 3 is getting closer to the release, and they even made the demo available now! Coincidence!?!?.........Well, yeah. Not even a big coincidence, to be honest.

I hope that everyone is still feeling well and stay safe at home. These days are really crazy. By the way i would be absolutly shocked if we have a Gamescom this year. Maybe for Bloodlines 2 at least this could be a good thing because they don´t need to make a new demo for major event this year.

Will they even feel confident to release the game this year ? Without a demo presentation and the press that could support the release ?

Well, it's a long wait until the end of the year. There is plenty of time to take care of everything,  and get the marketing on the case. A demo presentation or even a real demo can be delivered in many ways, in this day and age.

Paradox still can make their own Online Event for Bloodlines 2 at any time of year unlike E3 or Gamescom where you have a fix date.
The real question how effective is Home Office for gaming studios? We all assume not much at least for Singles but for devs who have kids? Who knows?

The real strange thing atleast for me right now that in hindsight the original release date for Bloodlines 2 in well March 2020 won´t have be that bad.
But nobody could have known that we have a worldwide crisis. Also i still believe that wouldn´t be a good idea to release Bloodlines 2 when its not ready.
