Arkane Studios’ Harvey Smith isn’t entirely sure Dishonored needs a sequel, even as the immersive sim draws rave reviews and hungry cries of “moar”.

“Part of me would love to see future games leverage this world,” he told Kotaku.

“And part of me would love it if the vault door was just closed and that’s it. This is your one view into the Empire of the Isles and into the city of Dunwall.”

Dishonored’s setting, which draws heavily on Industrial Revolution influences mixed with occult mystery, has drawn almost as much praise as its Looking Glass-legacy mechanics. The stealth-’em-up is out now on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; we think it’s pretty special.

I think they’d be best to not make a sequel. Dishonored is great and they should leave it at that. We will remember it for years to come.

 

Have to admit I am struggling to find the amazing game everyone else is talking about. It’s good, but for me nothing that new. Especially the AI, with all the powers and options the AI never stands a chance.

 

For most ppl though chances are that whether they can fight you back effectively or not versus your power and abilities is not the main concern for them.

rather it’s more on how well they respond to it… so the power and abilities can be enjoyed to the full.

 

Good! cos I want another Dark Messiah type game with ‘proper’ MP support :D

Get on it Arkane!

Arkane doing another Might and Magic game would be epic. If they were allowed to support a multiplayer it would be fantastic imo.
