As you know from reading The Pumpkin Post, the folks at Adventure Treff took a trip to the Hamburg offices of Crimson Cow, where they were able to get a close look at an alpha build of A Vampyre Story.
While Google's English translation is a little rough for my tastes, several details are revealed, and others are reaffirmed. It seems like the game's delay comes from issues with the coding side of the game, and the programming has been outsourced to the company Bear Technology to finish things up. On the plus side, and as we've already known, the art side of the game has been long completed, which is why A Vampyre Story 2 is already well into pre-production, with an extremely early suggested release period of Christmas 2009.
