Production has already begun in Stockholm, Sweden, to create a two-part documentary that looks at the history and phenomenon of the World of Darkness franchise. The documentary makers have promised exclusive interviews and never-before-seen footage from White Wolf.
White Wolf CEO Tobias Sjogren says that this documentary should take fans on a fascinating journey: “The tumultuous history of the World of Darkness, Vampire: The Masquerade, and White Wolf is something akin to a rock n’ roll soap opera mashed together with a Shakespearean tragedy. It’s more than just a story about a game or a company, but also the fans and how this thing helped shape and affect their lives. This is really their story and we believe that needs to be told.”
It will be interesting to see whether the documentary touches at all upon CCP Games’ canceled World of Darkness MMORPG. CCP shut down the game and its development studio in 2014 and subsequently sold White Wolf to Paradox Games in 2015.
