When can I be a virtual vampire? While developer CCP isn't giving out any dates for its World of Darkness MMO, EVE Online creative director Torfi Frans Olafsson tells Eurogamer the game is in a playable state.
Vampire the Masquerade creators White Wolf merged with EVE Online developer CCP in 2006, leading to talk of a Vampire-themed massively multiplayer online game. Sure enough, that project was outed in 2007, indicating a release sometime in 2011.
Now it is almost 2011, and we've not heard a word about the project, until now. Speaking to Eurogamer, Torfi Frans Olafsson gives as much of the skinny as he can.
"It's dark and sexy," said EVE Online creative director Torfi Frans Olafsson. "That game is in development but I don't have any comments on the status or the progress - except that I've played it."
The World of Darkness MMO is currently in development at CCP's Atlanta offices. I've seen the darkened, brick-lined cubicles the team is toiling away in, but was not allowed inside.
We'll see if we can change that in the near future. For now, check out the art concept video fan site The Masquerade recently featured for the game, seen below.
