There have been threads on the VEKN and Board Game Geek forums with rumors that Fantasy Flight (the ones who retooled and rereleased Netrunner) are going to release a World of Darkness themed LCG, and that it is in playtest.

Up until now the rumors have been a bit thin, but the most recent posting seems pretty plausible,

The leaks about the playtesting are going up on the 4chan boards, presumably because the posters want to remain anonymous...

If the game's good, I'm all in. Even better if it's comparable enough to the original, so that fans will come up with some sort of conversion scheme for adapting old cards into the new game.

Based on my experiences with the Lord of the Rings LCG and Netrunner, the initial release will be interesting but won't quite satisfy. You'll need multiple copies of the base set to produce decks that are any good, and there will be some seemingly pointless cards and some strategies that seem lacking. Over time as the expansions come out, these factors are repaired (support cards come out that combo well with things from the first release) or go away (with LotR, there have been multiple cycles of expansions and having 2-3 copies of some hot cards from the initial release isn't important anymore).
