Cara Ellison, the senior narrative designer for Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2, has moved on from the project. In a statement given to PC Gamer, publisher Paradox Interactive has confirmed that Ellison is no longer involved with the game.

"We can confirm that Cara Ellison has decided to leave Hardsuit Labs and is no longer working on Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2," the statement reads. "Cara brought fresh ideas to the project and many of her contributions will be present in the game launching next year."

Ellison has secured a new position--she's now a Senior Narrative Designer at League of Geeks, the Australian developer of Armello. The studio's next game remains a secret, but it will be published by Private Division.

Ellison is not the first narrative team member to leave the project. In August, narrative lead Brian Mitsoda and creative director Ka’ai Cluney were terminated from developer Hardsuit Labs. In June, it was announced that Chris Avellone's contributions to the game would not be used after numerous accusations of sexual assault and misconduct came to light.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 was originally scheduled for a 2020 release, but it was delayed into 2021. A new date has not been set. The game is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X, as well as PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
