Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines Fan Remake has been Cancelled

By   /   Nov 24, 2014

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines is one of the most ambitious role-playing games out there. For that reason, fans were highly excited about its fan-remake. However, the re-imagining won’t be seeing the light of day.

By that I mean the game has now been officially cancelled, thanks to CCP Games. The remake was canceled after the creator’s received legal threats from CCP.

The game was published a while back by Activision, under license from White Wolf, the company now known as CCP.

CCP owns certain rights associated with the game such as copyrights and trademark. This became the basis of a cease and desist order from CCP.

The news was revealed in a post on Project Vaulderie’s website:

“In a disappointment shared among our team we are complying with that request,” project lead Arthur wrote.

The post further stated:

“All of this invalidates our effort and the meaning of the entire project: as a remake of Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines cannot be a remake without its original contents.”

This is certainly a disappointment for all of them who donated to the project. Still, not all hope is lost. The post stated that the creators are trying to find a way to keep working on the project but haven’t yet revealed their course of action.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, was a single player only PC RPG released back in 2004. Players took the role of a newly created vampire, who finds himself/herself in the middle of a war between various factions. The game was a cult hit and Project Vaulderie was a re-imagining of it. You can read more about the remake on the official website.
