"We're not really hiding any information about [the release date], we just don't know yet," Bergsson told Eurogamer. "The actual design and exactly how it's going to be is being created right now, so when we actually know all of that we can guestimate how long it's going to take. These games typically take four to five years to make. I don't think this is going to be any different."
CCP's in-development MMO is far from the first game to be based off White Wolf's World of Darkness, a phrase which encompasses the overlying setting of White Wolf's multiple pen and paper roleplaying games. Past video games set in the World of Darkness include Nihilistic's RPG Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption (PC) and Troika's first person RPG Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines (PC, pictured left), as well as High Voltage Software's action RPGs Hunter: The Reckoning (Xbox, GCN), Hunter: The Reckoning - Wayward (PS2) and Hunter: The Reckoning - Redeemer (Xbox).
