We may not get a sequel to cult-classic Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, but upcoming PC/Xbox 360 title Dark may fill that niche.
Dark is a third-person stealth-action game in which the player takes on the role of Eric Bane, a newborn vampire who seeks revenge on a mysterious corporation. With sneaking in the shadows, using supernatural powers, focusing on melee combat, taking place in the modern world, and mixing in RPG elements (leveling up, dialog trees), it's not hard to tell where Dark takes inspiration from. This isn't a knock against the title, as I adore games of this type and can certainly do with another.
Dark is published by Kalypso Media and developed by Realmforge Studios, makers of Dungeons. These guys have a real way with words or maybe they just love laughing at us trying to Google the names of their games.
