The silence has gotten to such a length of time where I am starting to worry whether or not the game is actually still being developed or it has been abandoned and declared vaporware?

6 months of total silence from the devs is worrying.

Bloodlines 2 are still on all their websites and they are still looking for a lead game designer....

Reading the requirements make it sounds like they haven't figured out how the games Economy, items and maybe even how the character skill progression needs to work yet, which sounds like there is a long way to go.

Similar "Open Position" can be found in a lot of well established SW Houses.
Moreover I remember that BL2 should be followed by at least a major expansion which may eventually requires an additional Game Designer (together with additional programmers etc.. )
So, that post doesn't reveal a lot

The fact that a community manager nor moderator will jump in to say at least "yes, it's still being developed" is even more worrying.
Oh come on ... for that last 6 months you are talking about we all are asking for that reaction and nothing happened ... what does mean "one more topic" ?
I said it countless times and i say it again ... they dont care about "us" they care about our money ... as long as we keep our preorders, they have zero reason to change their attitude.

well your not completely wrong..but if they just care about our money there only loosing it if they keep delaying the game and it might be a good idea for them to try and give us a update on wtf is happening..eventually people will start to loose hype, cancel preorders and eventually stop talking about it and wont care about it eventually leading it to be forgotten..id add more but you and everyone else know what im saying..but does the devs of BL2 know that? who knows

Honestly? Most people dont.
Common argument i hear is "im going to buy it anyway, so what is the point". :-/

And even if 10.000 preorders will be cancelled, wich may seem a lot ... it still would probably be around 1%, maybe even less. Therefore irellevant. :D

Game will never be forgotten, we are not in 90' anymore ...
For one, there is many reasons for them to re-start whole marketing campaign once they get the feeling it would be meaningfull ... that will remind people ...
For two, all the people who have preordered can completely forget about it, and game will remind itself on release day ...
And for three, i forgot what i wanted to say. :D :D :D

Anyway, all they risk is people getting upset and lower any rewievs and rattings with reason "wasnt worth waiting" ... and i believe they allready showed us pretty clearly that they are not affraid of that.

Though correct, I would argue that a sign of life would go a long way to keep the good will. Even if it is just a "Hi am working on BL2 and this is what we are doing." Doesn't cost much effort and will placate those who are still crossing their Fingers for this project.

Oh i never said it would const much ...
On the contrary, for last few months i keep repeating that all they need to do is allow Outstar to tell us something in WoD news, since they allready pay her anyway, and she allready do that weekly show anyway ... there is litteraly no additional cost. They just dont want to. :-/

Not sure if im suppose to smile, since this is really nice way to threat your poeple ... or cry, since ... well, everything. :-/


I am going with no, as they have no staff, as they have all left, and new ones are still looking for new jobs.
Go on someone prove me wrong.
Il try ...
Can you name me at least single studio that can afford to not hire new talented people and let others have them? o_O

Have looked at the website for BL2 just now to see if anything has been added, everything seemed to have stopped as of last August.
Have we received anything from PDX or Hardsuit Labs since August 2020?

Not directly ...
We got few informations from PDX employees that they are no longer PDX employees. :D
But that is it.
Okay, shame I was really excited when I heard that PDX is bringing out BL2. Ah well maybe some other Company will have better luck. I was going to preorder in 2019, but opted to preorder CP2077 instead, looks like I made the right choice.
