Dishonored was one of the best new IPs of the previous generation. It received widespread critical acclaim and it sold quite well.
Therefore, it wouldn’t be a shock to hear that a sequel is on the way.
A certain leaked photo is making the Internet rounds; you can see it here. It clearly shows a Dishonored II logo along with the tagline: “Witness the full reveal at E3 2014!” Fans of the original are sincerely hoping this is legit; if it is, I expect we’ll find more evidence of the project’s existence over the next few months.
For the record, developer Arkane Studios and publisher Bethesda have said nothing official, so take this with a grain of salt. It’s also important to note the relatively plain “II” in that logo, which may hint that it’s fake. Even if it is, though, it’s still very likely that we’ll eventually see a sequel to the well-received Dishonored. It won over many reviewers and critics – including me – when it launched in 2012.
We may not have to wait until E3…
These days, it’s very difficult to keep a big secret…well, secret. Keeping the lid on a Dishonored sequel will be nigh-on impossible, especially with all the eagle-eyed gamers and inside tipsters in the industry right now. Personally, I’m not that interested in rumors because I figure the official word is never far off.
