After just twelve months, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt is ceasing active development. Sharkmob announced earlier today, May 15, that Bloodhunt won't be receiving any further major content updates. In a statement, Sharkmob states the following:
"Ever since launch, we have been on a journey to excite and delight our players, however, while we have an amazing and very engaged community, we haven't been able to reach the critical mass needed to sustain development. This has led us to the decision to stop the further development of Bloodhunt. With that said, Bloodhunt servers will stay up and the game will remain available to play."
This means that fans of the battle royale will still be able to play games with their friends and earn rewards, but once they've experienced all of the content in the game then they'll have nothing new on their plate. According to the statement, a new system will be put in place in an attempt to ensure that content remains as fresh as possible. The team is also looking at turning off microtransactions in the title, stating that:
"We are also looking at turning off real currency purchasing on September 26th. Before this happens, we will implement a way to earn in-game tokens more easily so players can continue to play and unlock cosmetics beyond this date."
