An interview on the swedish site gamingaktier.com with Tobias Sjögren gives some additional insight on engine and release date (add a healthy dose of salt to that statement, especially if it's not coming from Cyanide Studios themselves). Translated by yours truly.
Sjögren: "The game is coming to PC and console and is being created in the Unreal-engine. The genre is action RPG. The goal is for the game to be released during the first half of 2019."
And completely unrelated to Earthblood, Sjögren mentioned about the possibility of TV-serie(s) based on World of Darkness.
Interviewer: "In an older youtube video you mentioned it would be a failure from your side to not have a Netflix-series based on the World of Darkness universe within a couple of years. Can you elaborate? Are there any plans for a series today?"
Sjögren: "Yes, and by Netflix we are talking about streaming services in general, there are after all several options in that field. First and foremost we believe that we (White Wolf) have a lot of stories to tell that would fit extremely well as TV-serie(s), and we work with the ambition to have something on the market as early as 2020. So the work from our side is well under way. One particular trap we're trying to avoid is not having full control over the rights, so we don't e.g. get in the same situation as Skybound with their IP 'Walking Dead' where the universe exists in two versions. One is based on the TV-series that is produced by AMC, and the other is the comic (the original). Therefore we're not going for the first license-offer we come across with the highest guarantee. We're looking for a serious collaboration and hoping to produce several parallel TV-series such as Marvel have done on Netflix with Daredevil, Jessica Jones and so on."
The german site wodnews.blog also made a write-up of the same article.
