Just a year after launch, Sharkmob’s battle royale Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodhunt is ending development.

Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodhunt launched back in April 2022 as a free-to-play battle royale title based on the tabletop game, Vampire: The Masquerade. Now, just over a year after release, developer Sharkmob has announced that they will be ending development on the title.

The announcement was revealed in a blog post on the game’s official website, which read, “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 further development of Bloodhunt.”

The post went on to say that the game’s servers will remain online for the time being and the game available to play. “Our aim is to keep the servers going for as long as we have an active player base and community. For those who enjoy the game and want to continue playing, we have worked on some solutions to ensure that the game continues to be interesting,” the post continued.

“An in-game player voting system will be deployed to regularly unlock new things and keep Bloodhunt fresh. We will share more granular details about how this system works when we get closer to releasing our next update, which will be the last planned patch for Bloodhunt. Beyond that update, patches will only be related to maintenance.”

The announcement ended with the developers expressing their sadness towards bringing the game to its close: “While we are as sad as you are that Bloodhunt development has now come to an end, please know that this was a difficult decision to make, and we take this experience with us in the development of coming games.

We hope you will still have many enjoyable experiences in Bloodhunt, and we look forward to seeing you on the streets of Prague!”
