Dishonored sequel uncertainty

During an interview with Kotaku, Harvey Smith claimed "This is your one view into the Empire of the Isles and into the city of Dunwall" as well as other comments.

In addition, he also told Kotaku "I can't say" in response to Kotaku's question asking him what side of the fence he was on.
Full details inside the article. (Culture, Dev, Dishonored, Industry, PC, PS3, PSP, Tech, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I'm waiting to by the game, with Bethesda's track record I'm waiting till they drop the price, and have patches to fix whatever is broken
DigitalAnalog  +   1049d ago
Relax, Bethesda is just publishing the game. I've played it on steam with no problems. The standard UE3 pop-ops for every loading screen is pretty much the norm by now. Just finished the game and it really makes you want to replay the game to try different approaches. Hopefully the reviews would give them the sales deserved for them to start bigger and better projects.

I just ordered the pc version from amazon for £24.99 and after reading some reviews, that seems like a bargain.
mynameisEvil  +   1049d ago
That's a damn good bargain. Oh, and this is a case of which the PC version is even more amazing. Aside from using hotkeys, which makes things a lot easier, the performance of this game on PC is outstanding. I have 100+ framerates consistently. Ah, now if only Bethesda themselves could make ports as great as Arkane does.

@ mynameisevil

The performance is outstanding because the graphics are poor.

Good game though
adorie  +   1049d ago
The graphics aren't poor. I don't know why people keep saying that.

They're fine. They're not cutting edge, but they look really nice.

Myscreen can't handle the FPS I get so I have to lock it down with Vsync, without Vsync I can hit over 130 FPS, easily. It is a UE3 game, after all.

As for texture pops, only after loading and is too fast to notice, most of the time.

@topdudeman

you could of gotten it for £22.50 on greenmangaming with thier 25% off.

it's an awesome game, i'm taking my time with it.
MattyG  +   1049d ago
It's an incredible game, and I haven't encountered any bugs in my 15+ hours with it. There is a big difference between publisher and developer.
finbars75  +   1049d ago
I agree i havnt encountered any bugs either on the ps3.The game is awsome and worth every penny.Guys dont be cheap on this one you are getting what you pay for.Just remeber Bethesda didnt make the game they published it Arkane developed the game who were part of the original Bioshock team.Love the art direction and gameplay mechanics so smooth.
Cam977  +   1049d ago
As stated by DigitalAnalog, Bethesda are the publisher and not the developer therefore; the game won't have what makes them infamous.

Covered this yesterday.

OLD.

One of the few games that actually deserves a sequel and there's uncertainty? :(
byeGollum  +   1049d ago
Why must almost every game have a sequel? There's enough as it is...

You're right, just give us DLC for the next 5 years, then we'll be happy. /s
paddystan  +   1049d ago
A game should not get a sequel because it's refreshing, good and sells good. For example, none of the endings in Dishonored "wants" a sequel. The entire story ends there. There are no sign og a sequel in the ending. If there will be a sequel, then it's for the money.
Trenta27  +   1049d ago
I agree with you on this. The ending showed nothing about a sequel at all, at least not with Corvo. I want to know more about this world, but that's something DLC can accomplish.
wallis  +   1049d ago
It's good that a sequel isn't immediately obvious simply because of success. I like that to them the idea of beating something to death just because it works isn't the reason they're making games and that's great - the problem is that I really like Dunwall. As a game setting it's awesome and I'd hate not to see more of the different cities and other nations. Personally I'd just as happily see the setting open up to other genres or entries. You can revisit a world without making a sequel - so that might be cool.
beerkeg  +   1049d ago
Yeah it has a great setting, I'd love to see more of it. But I respect his attitude, he's not looking at making a franchise out of it, so if that's the end of it so be it.

But I would love a sequel.
MattyG  +   1049d ago
I just hope they don't pull a Bioshock and make a sequel that doesn't live up to it's predecessor.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1049d ago
No doubt, the game is beast.
PastyGangster  +   1049d ago
I've been playing this game on PC. Haven't had any problems what so ever. Haven't even ran into any glitches. This may very well be my favorite game of the year.
Nunchez  +   1049d ago
It just came out lol! Plus I still haven't even finished it and there's talk of a sequel?
FragMnTagM  +   1049d ago
Finished it last night. It is a great game. At first I was pissed when I died, or failed the mission and had to redo it. Yet this allowed me to approach the mission in a different way. There are literally like 100 different ways to get around the level, and to your target.

I didn't even kill any of the main people. I tried to make my playthrough with as little killing as possible. I am now gonna run through it completely murdering everything.
Bladesfist  +   1049d ago
My free time is split between this and XCOM at the moment, both games are as rewarding and unforgiving on higher difficulties. I am enjoying the challenge.
julionarthz  +   1040d ago
I actually wrote a sequel for the game. If you guys want to read it, you can find it here, on my website: http://julionarthz.weebly.c...

Please let me know what you guys think. I wrote it in the style of The Elder Scrolls. The way most Bethesda players will know and love.

Thanks.
