Bethesda announces Dishonored for 2012 release

Thursday, 7th July 2011 15:13 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Bethesda’s lifted the wraps of Arkane’s first game under the publisher: a brand new IP called Dishonoured.

The publisher’s confirmed it for a 2012 launch on PS3, 360 and PC.

The game, which is seen as a first-person stealth action-adventure game, is on the front cover of Game Informer’s next issue, and is all about “assassination where you don’t have to kill anyone,” according to the mag among other things.

Morality and player choices will play a big part.

Dishonored’s development is being led by Arkane co-founder Raf Colantonio and co-creative director – and co-creator of the Deus Ex series – Harvey Smith. Viktor Antonov, who designed City 17 in Half-Life 2, is also involved with the game.

The unveil comes nearly a week after it was discovered that Bethesda registered the trademark Dishonored.

Arkane was bought by Bethesda in 2010, and was formally announced at QuakeCon the same year.

    But for all we know this could be a crap game, not everything Bethesda’s concerned is good. I mean…Rogue Warrior? My god.

    That doesn’t sound like much fun :)

    @2 The problem with Rogue Warrior was that Bethesda took Zombie Studios off it since they couldn’t get the innovative multiplayer map generation tool to work properly…and then they handed it over to Rebellion who put that piece of shit out after only developing it for a year…

    Otherwise, Bethesda’s pretty legit, especially their main studio, but I didn’t even bother with Hunted: The Demon’s Forge even though I thought it looked cool at first…Brink was alright, hopefully Dishonored ends up being cool.

    And is that even possible how can it be an “assassination” if you don’t kill anyone? That’s kind of the definition of the word:

    “An assassination is ‘to murder (a usually prominent person) by a sudden and/or secret attack, often for political reasons.’ An additional definition is ‘the act of deliberately killing someone, especially a public figure, usually for hire or for political reasons.”
