    Is this why there is no more content developped on FG?

    It looks like WoD has partnered to develop its own platform https://www.worldofdarknessnexus.com/

    No. We just need more community devs converting the content for VTM5E that we can put out. They are just waiting on us.

    That looks like pretty cool. I was thinking it was only a DnDBeyond type of thing but if you can play through it that may be worth checking out when it comes out. It doesn't take long to put stuff in, I've gone through and put all the crunchy bits into my game.

    They position themselves as a Discord competitor, not yet as a VTT. They do no exclude community-created bridges with existing VTT as a first step, but they currently don't appear having the resources offering it themselves.
    I sadly don't have time to manually input all the books, pictures, etc.

    They've waited so long that now someone else has stepped into that space and is developing a DND Beyond like app for VTM. FG has lost an opportunity.

    Nexxus is not just for World of Darkness games - they're doing Pathfinder 2 and other RPG systems. I believe it's been created by one of the people who used to work at DnD Beyond (one of the founders I think). It's another player on the block in terms of digital content and play facilitation, but it's not a VTT and provides that data in a different format to FG. I don't think FG has lost an opportunity, because there was never an opportunity there to become the sole provider of World of Darkness online tools - the powers that be on the World of Darkness side would pursue other digital opportunities whether FG had lots of products converted or not. Sure, it would be great if there were more VtM and other World of Darkness products converted to FG. But, as stated by @ddavison above, it needs community developers to develop and convert products...

    None of our agreements has been an exclusive and none of the current digital offerings from other companies is exclusive as far as I've seen.
