True, although that's kind of ambiguous, I doubt it will be out by January!
But it could be I suppose.

If it's out that fast, it'll likely be old school, off the shelf, and lame.

"Feargus Urquhart: The stuff we're really working on is Armored Warfare, which is our big one, and then Tyranny, we're starting to move forward on Pillars of Eternity 2, and we've just shipped the digital version of the Pathfinder card game. Then we have a few people working on something new. We hired Leonard Boyarsky recently, who's one of the co-creators of the original Fallout.

Q: Can we take a hint from that as to the nature of this new project?

FU: Well, no [laughs]. We're not working on a Fallout."

That's one of the more likely franchises the super secret Cain-Boyarsky project could be based on down.

Not going to get super hyped about a Bloodlines sequel.

Part of what made Bloodlines(and to a lesser point, Redemption) great, what it's sleazy 'gives no fucks' attitude.

It was a "World of Darkness," and it made sure you knew that. Dirty, gives no fucks dialogue, strip clubs, a porn studio, crazy outfits, etc. It was a dirty, seedy world, with dirty and seedy people.

I can't possibly see something remotely similar this day and age. Too many people who will whine and bitch about being offended. Gotta keep it PC, right?

Hell, you can already see a change in tone in many of the recent White Wolf books. Can't say I'm a fan.

Hope they prove me incorrect.

Exactly! Troika already had to disable the blowjob sequences in the original game because of this...

Even if the game would be PC I think that a new Vampire game would be a good thing as it would get the world moving again and raise awareness for the game and setting.

What copyrights and trademarks Paradox actually bought? I read that books are now sold by Onyx Path (http://theonyxpath.com/).
Or its no longer so?

To my understanding, all and everything related to World of Darkness.


https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/take-our-rpg-survey.962385/

Apparently there has been another survey up on the Paradox forums for a few days now.

"Greetings everyone!
One thing we really value here at Paradox is customer feedback and that's why we are happy to share our latest survey with you all! This time it focuses on re-playability in role-playing games and we'd be tremendously grateful if you would take the time to fill it out! As always we also have a short FAQ!

How long will the survey take?
Around 15-20 minutes.

Who is this survey aimed towards?
Gamers well versed in the ways of role-playing games, preferably with extensive experience in a multitude of different games (Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Baldur's Gate etc).

What is the purpose of the survey?
We are interested in learning more about our customers expectations, experiences and other similar things in regards to role-playing games and their re-playability.

Will I be compensated?
No, there will be no prize for participating in the survey other than our eternal gratitude and virtual high-fives!

Will we share this with anyone else?
No, the survey results are for us only, nothing of what you enter will be shared with anyone outside of Paradox.

If you have any questions, concerns, comments etc feel free to ask away here in the thread and we will do our very best to answer you as best we can!

From all of us here at Paradox: thank you for being awesome!

-:Take the survey:-"

The games they're asking questions related to replayability in roleplaying games about are Mass Effect 2, Dishonored, Baldur's Gate 2, Fallout New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity and... Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines.

Edit: Sorry, my bad, just noticed the other thread linking to the survey.

I just did this survey, but still don't understand what is owned by Onyx and what by Paradox.

According to the content posted by White Wolf on Facebook, "5th Edition will be developed in house at White Wolf. Chronicles of Darkness will continue to be developed by Onyx Path Publishing."
