Dishonored’s much-requested sequel is the subject of today’s super dubious Internet rumblings, with an E3 2014 reveal on the cards.
According to an off-screen photo of a slide from some sort of presentation, Dishonored 2 will be fully revealed at E3 in June. The existence of the slide, should it be genuine, suggests it will be shown or discussed before the event, at least behind closed doors.
The slide carries the hashtag Darkness of Tyvia, which currently returns no results not connected to the alleged leak.
Take this with all the cynicism you should apply to unattributed images that just pop up on the Internet; it’s not hard to grab the Arkane and Bethesda logos, whack ’em on a PowerPoint, and take a picture of your projector – while it is quite hard to get anything through Bethesda’s NDAs, and industry insiders have little to gain by leaking information.
E3 2014 will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Centre from June 10 through 12.
The first Dishonored game released in 2012 to critical acclaim and significant commercial success. Bethesda boss Pete Hines described it as a “new franchise”, and Arkane Studios hasn’t teased or revealed any other projects since wrapping DLC, making a sequel seem quite likely.
