While EA may have scoffed at releasing a new IP “this late in the console cycle”, Dishonored has gone well beyond even Bethesda’s high expectations. “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,” claimed Bethesda’s PR man Pete Hines.
“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.”
Does this mean there’s a Dishonored 2 on the way? Well, as somebody who thought the original game was superb, let me be the first to say: yes please.
