This is getting better and better.  :facepalm: The direction is clear. Mainstream soulless crap.


Mitsoda was the soul of the game.  Once they fired him the game is as you say soulless.  Also we live in an age where publishers want their games to be more streamlined and accessible to casual gamers.  In theory this is not a bad idea but in reality the product suffers from it.

WTF: "I've been seeing a lot of articles incorrectly mention me as a narrative designer for Bloodlines 2. I didn't write that game and I had been hired for other purposes. Hope that clears things up!"https://twitter.com/StillNotSam/status/1367580321932140545
I am very confused. So she wasn´t the Mitsoda replacement and she didn´t worked on Bloodlines 2 or its DLC? Yeez we really need a Jason Schreier style report scoop about what happened.

Well this "fun theory" seems plausible. I mean HSL was just a small studio and had no more than 100 devs. Maybe this was a big scam. Of course not in the beginning because Ka´ai Cluney and Brian Mitsoda were really passionate about a Bloodlines 2 but after sometime HSL took some of the BL2 money for other products.
But who knows? Maybe this is all bullshit. Whatever the reasons are exactly i don´t think that this silence and closing the BL2 forum is any good.
Edit: Also a "fun & extreme wild theory", maybe Paradox official hires Wesp for fixing Bloodlines game again.  :rofl:

I don't believe that for one minute. Who would trust HSL after all the BL2 delays to work on something else?

Well this reminds of Gearbox and the whole Aliens Colonial Marines debacle. Gearbox also used the Sega money for their own IP Borderland instead. This cases aren´t that rare in the business.
Speaking of trust: Well HSL has still contact jobs as port or support studio.

Yes, but who would need a narrative designer for support? I guess that woman is telling only half the truth and she was working on BL2 DLC. After all she was very quick supporting the lies that got Avellone canceled...

I guess no real studio but maybe and that´s far fetched she was just a fake standin for Paradox, press and the public.

Well why would she lie? We all know that BL2 DLC were planned so whats the point one saying that she hadn´t worked on Bloodlines 2 and the media is all wrong?

She said "I didn't write that game and I had been hired for other purposes." which is true if she was hired for the DLCs. She didn't write "that game", Mitsoda did...

This is still a strange statement because i would view the DLCs as extra content for that game aka Bloodlines 2.

Speaking of DLCs: Is Paradox still committed to make the DLCs aka Season of the Wolf or do they abandon the previous plans and make something else?
