Aside from the Thief series, there?s this one game that redefined the term ?stealth? in videogames, and it happens to be called Dishonored. The game was originally released back in October 2012, and it didn?t take long enough to make waves. It easily became ?one of the best action-adventure games of the year and it certainly warranted a sequel.
Rumors have it that the next game is already in the works and was supposed to make an appearance in the recent E3 2014, but that didn?t happen. Fortunately, despite being quiet about the development, more sources pointed out additional details about the game?s development progress, particularly with the story.
A reliable source spoke with Now Gamer and revealed that Arkane Studios is greatly considered to replace the former protagonist in the first game which is Corvo. If you have played the first game, then you might remember Emily Kaldwin. She is the little girl you saw at the beginning of Dishonored?s game. The one who asked to play hide and seek with you.
It is safe to assume that she is not the child that she was in the first game, so the game?s setting would probably be a few years after the events of the first game. It is also mentioned that the second Dishonored game would take place outside Dunwall, so it is likely that we might be playing on either of the three islands: Tyvia, Morley or Serkonos.
Still, all of this information was leaked at the earliest points of the game?s development, so we can pretty much expect that much has changed since then. This makes it a little less believable, but then again, we don?t have much else to go on, so it?s still good at some point.
The leaker also stated that Dishonored 2 is being developed by Arkane Lyon.
