A sequel to Arkane Studios’ 2012 stealth-action hit Dishonored is reportedly about to be announced.
Update: According to Neogaf user Endless, the image was sent via an anonymous email with the message “That might be of interest for you. Cant tell my sources. Your choice. #DarknessOfTyvia.”
A random anonymous email doesn’t exactly instill confidence that this is real, but we’ll be keeping an eye on this and seeing if there’s an official response.
Original story: Thief may not have dazzled reviewers, but there may soon be another way to get your stealth fix. If this supposedly leaked image from a mysterious presentation is accurate, Dishonored II is not only in development, it’s far enough along to get a full reveal at E3 2014 in June.
The image was shared by Twitter user AllGamesBeta earlier today, though it’s unknown where the photo was taken and who’s giving this presentation. As you can see, there’s not much more than a logo, though the hashtag #darknessoftyvia could reveal a possible setting for the sequel. According to the Dishonored Wiki, Tyvia is the northernmost island in the Empire, and as such is known for its cold atmosphere and “hostile ecosystem.”
Naturally, this image doesn’t constitute a formal announcement from Arkane or publisher Bethesda, so Dishonored II remains firmly in the rumor category for now. If either the publisher or developer issues a response, we’ll keep you posted.
