Expect Dishonored Sequels, Says Bethesda

Sales of Dishonored have outstripped Bethesda’s expectations, a situation that - according to the Bethesda - puts the publisher in a position to turn the stealth action game into a franchise.

VP of PR and Marketing at Bethesda Pete Hines said, "I can tell you that Dishonored is far exceeding our sales expectations, which is especially cool considering it's new IP facing a host of well-established franchises this quarter.

"We did terrific numbers again this past weekend, both in stores and on Steam, where Dishonored was listed as the #1 selling title over the holiday weekend. And Dishonored has really sold well overseas."

"So, we're very pleased and appreciate all the fans that have supported Dishonored and Arkane. We clearly have a new franchise."

New franchise! New sequels! Sounds good to us.

The original Dishonored's first DLC pack was dated and priced recently, you can read about that here.

When the devs say they're not sure they want a sequel and the publisher says to expect sequelS ... you now what will happen.^^

That being said, I liekd the game a lot and will be happy about sequels unless they suck.

I got a totally random idea Bethesda.

FIX SKYRIM FIRST and then talk about sequels to other games.

If Arkane won't make the sequel, then Bethesda will just outsource it to someone else :(.

They need to outsource The Elder Scrolls and just keep writing the scripts for 'em... just started Dishonored today, though. I sure hope it doesn't end with a cliffhanger or something.

I really miss the days where you could play one game and get a full story and be content with the ending... I want more BioShocks damn it!

Yeah, I understand drkrZEN, nowadays you have to play 3 to 5 games to get the whole story (AC, Uncharted, Resistance, God of War, Gears of war, etc). But those are good games, so actually it's not that bad

@4 POSSIBLY SPOILERS
Well not really but if your the kind of person who doesn't want any little detail ruined till your playing the actual game then you might want to avoid this post.





Ok...Spoilers begin here.


Actually Dishonored has no cliffhanger. I won't tell you how it ends or any of the details but this is a game that doesn't require any other games to have the full story. (Sorry if you've read it anyway and now had the game spoiled)

#2.

Skyrim and Dishonored have 2 different developers.
They have only the same Publisher , Bethesda.
So what you saying make no sense.

I do understand what you thinking, i also wait for Skyrim DLC.
But its a different developer.

I dont't rally get what you mean by saying that you need to play all Uncharted to get the full story. They are just stories who happens to have some of the same characters in it, which I think is great. That Way you don't have to start all over again when playing the next game. But in the case of Uncharted I played the second one first. Didn't ruin my experience more than watching Temple Of Doom before the other 2 Indiana Jones movies did.

I think Dishonored is a great game and it will probably becomre my Game of the Year (might be beaten by Far Cry 3, but we will see). I definately think it deservers the sales it got, and I'm looking forward for the DLC!

I haven't bought it yet, I was going to, but since DLC has been announced, I'll wait for the complete edition with all the DLC released, since y'know, Bethesda tend to do that with their games, lol.

@10:

Chronologically Temple of Doom comes before Raiders of the Lost Ark so technically it's the first film.

Addendum:

By "Chronologically" I mean story wise as the Temple of Doom is set before the other 3.
