World of Darkness MMO: please sir, can I have some more (information)?

EVE Online developer CCP and White Wolf Publishing merged last year. Soon after they did so, they announced a World of Darkness MMO which was to begin development.

We've heard little to nothing since then. Eurogamer recently interviewed Magnus Bergsson (Marketing Director for CCP) who had this to say:
Speaking of a release date, Bergsson said, "We don't know yet. We're not really hiding any information about it, we just don't know yet. The actual design and exactly how it's going to be is being created right now, so when we actually know all of that we can guestimate how long it's going to take. These games typically take four to five years to make. I don't think this is going to be any different."
The good news: they're working on it. The bad news: we've got a long time to wait.

For the uninitiated, the World of Darkness is the setting in which Vampire: The Masquerade, Bloodlines took place. It's mature, gritty, dark, modern, and most of all, frightening.

Does the prospect of an MMORPG in which you get to play a vampire sound as good to you as it does to me?
