With the release of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 on track for a late 2020 release, comes word of a new narrative RPG set in the Vampire: The Masquerade universe. With the subtitle Swansong, this new narrative RPG is targeting a 2021 release date and comes from Big Bad Wolf the studio behind the episodic narrative adventure The Council.

With Big Ben publishing and French studio Cyanide (of Call of Cthulhu fame) assisting. No footage or details on the project have been provided apart from the following synopsis - which admittedly sounds a lot like Bloodlines 2.5.
In this narrative RPG adapted from the 5th edition of Vampire: The Masquerade, the player takes control of 3 vampires belonging to different clans of the Camarilla, the secret society to which most vampires belong. Weaving between their intertwined tales, the player has to confront the different points of view of his characters to unravel fact from fiction. With whispers of conspiracy, murder and power struggles, the player must protect his clan, discover the truth and above all enforce the Masquerade, the vampire law designed to conceal the existence of creatures of the night from humans.

"At the studio, we're long-time and passionate fans of the tabletop role-playing game Vampire: The Masquerade. We have wanted to create a video game inspired by this universe for several years now. This project fits perfectly with Bigben’s desire to expand its catalogue of narrative games. We are very happy to be unveiling it together," says Thomas Veauclin, Creative & Art Director at Big Bad Wolf.

As per the studio's history with The Council, this will be a narrative heavy game and joins both Bloodlines and Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York as the third game set in the tabletop universe to get announced in recent times.
