After the news of the old game which was looking quite decent at the time, i guess this should be something we are all going to like. Well I am just hoping the werewolves in the game will be as good as the ones in their manuals and comics. :D

I've actually been following this (to one degree or another) for a few months now over on the Onyx Path forum. I'll reserve judgement until I see more, but I'm not particularly hopeful.

1. Every time they've tried to do a W:tA game, it's imploded.
2. White Wolf isn't really into World of Darkness anymore. At this point, White Wolf is simply a holding company for intellectual property (with, apparently, no staff). All of the creative talent went over to Onyx Path.
3. If Paradox is behind it, they're probably just hoping to use the title to generate interest, rather than actually do W:tA justice. Paradox is more into doing original stuff that they own lock-stock-and-barrel. I have difficulty imagining that they will sink any real resources into a project that (for them) is really no more than a licensing agreement.
4. Paradox has been talking about this for something like six months now... and all they have is a graphic on a website (there's also some concept art floating around the Web, but there's not even that on the website). That's not encouraging.

Don't get me wrong. I'd love to see a genuine Werewolf: the Apocalypse video game. But the Garou are too niche and complex to have much appeal (particularly among the video game crowd) to the casual consumer. The flip side being that, the people who are going to go in because of the title, are going to want something decidedly different than what the first-person-shooter crowd want. Mass Effect is the perfect example of this point. Most role players loved Mass Effect... but in many parts of the gamer world, Mass Effect got horrendous reviews because (and I quote) "...It has beautiful visuals, but you have to wade through seemingly endless dialogue before anything exciting ever actually happens..."

True, i think there was 2 attempts for a game before this one and my expectations are not yuge, However even if we accept that paradox is not making their own creation, i guess the motivation and resources behind it should not be vanishing, looking thru all their titles which were a result of collaboration, most of them are fantasy theme ones, and paradox so far did good when they went with 1C for example, or frictional games, i have my doubts about white wolf, since every single side project they took in the past was either discontinued and or unreleased, therefore i hope that is why paradox is involved.

Ditto. I'm hoping that the thing comes to fruition, and that Paradox does its usual awesome best. Two of my three favorite PC games are Paradox creations (Hearts of Iron, and Cities: Skylines). I have my doubts that they'll be able to pull it off, but I'd love to be proven wrong. And, honestly, given their stellar track record, if anyone can pull this off it would be Paradox.

Well it seems it wouldn't be developed by them.

Platforms: PC, CONSOLES (PS4, Xbox one)
Release date: To be announced
Category: RPG
Developer: Cyanide Studio
Publisher: Focus Home Interactive

When i red that i was like, okey i am confused, after the topics we've mentioned, then i've looked thru the sites and that was the finding.
Cyanide Studio is known with Styx series, Blood Bowl series and Call of cthulhu.
I think the answer of it is different, seems like paradox owns white wolf.
But... Cyanide Studio did amazing job with Styx 1 and Styx 2, so i am not against it I am even more happy that they will be working in a party with white-wolf (paradox). ;D

Information from wikipedia. For more information check the source page of paradox interactive linked below.
