Vampire Bloodlines Trademark Suggests Vampire The Masquerade Sequel
White Wolf Publishing, an American company best known for Vampire The Masquerade, has recorded a trademark under the video game brand called Vampire Bloodlines.
Last October White Wolf Publishing trademarked ” Vampire: The Masquerade” under computer games. Right now it is difficult to say anything what this trademark means, may be the company is just trying to keep its rights to the IP in other forms of media or they could be working on a remake or sequel to Vampire The Masquerade.
However, White Wolf Publishing is owned by Paradox Interactive and the company is not a developing studio. So if the game is indeed in the works then it is being developed at another studio.
A remake of the popular role playing game Vampire The Masquerade – Bloodlines was in development by the fans of the game, but the game got cancelled because the developers received legal threats from the CCP games.
The game was published by Activision under license from White Wolf Publishing, 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.
Vampire The Masquerade – Bloodlines was a single-player PC exclusive RPG released in 2004. Players took the role of a newly created vampire, who finds himself/herself in the middle of a war between various factions.
Do you think White Wolf trademarked Vampire Bloodlines just to keep the rights to this IP to itself or they are developing a sequel? Let us know in the comments.
