The lights are on
Dishonored sold pretty well in the U.S. during its debut month. It seems like we'll see another game sometime in the future as Bethesda says, "We clearly have a new franchise."
Speaking to Destructoid, Bethesda VP of PR Pete Hines said the game saw a huge boost in sales during Black Friday last week and continues to do well in other territories."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," he said.
"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."
Good news then. I'd really like to see more of Dishonored.
Proving that new IP's late in a console generation's life is still a good idea. The phrase "we clearly have a new franchise" scares me a little, but coming from Bethesda, I'm not all that worried about it. If there's anyone who knows how to treat their franchises well, it's them.
I enjoyed Dishonored quite a bit. I really expected the story to be better but I thought the gameplay was solid and I enjoyed the art style as well.
I would love to see a squeal to this game. It would be a good chance to make it a lot better.
I'm glad Bethesda is moving forward with Dishonored as a new franchise. I enjoyed what I played of the first game. I need to finally finish it though. I really hope they improve on it in all aspects.
Awesome. Love to hear that they are thinking about doing it in a franchise...
I still need to buy this game.
Booya! Just picked it up. Can't wait to play it
dishonored wasn't bad but i can't say it was great imo either ... they could do better, specialy for stealth stuff and maybe having a better populated world n stuff ( i get the whole plage thing but it was just too empty ) as much as i wasn't fond of it and which i hadn't pre-ordered it cause it wasn't with the 60$ ( 20 would've been better ) i'd still be intrested in a sequel
That was a great game that had great potential to be even better. I LOVED this game and would like to see how another could be done. With smoother game mechanics and graphics. Oh dear God it would be great!!!
This is awesome news. Dishonored is my favorite game this year, followed by Halo 4. This is saying a lot considering I've thoroughly played Mass Effect 3 and the incredibly boring Assassins Crap 3.
That's all fine and good, but where is the story DLC?
I am playing through this right now, playing two games at once. I started with straight stealth and not killing, but I am also playing through where I'm killing everybody. Great game!
