Joe from GamersFTW writes: Any fans of the Dishonored series will happy this week. The release date was announced for the game this week, and now more and more details about the highly anticipated sequel to the 2012 stealth adventure are making themselves known. Honestly, for a game that prides itself on its stealth mechanics it’s not being very shy and sticking to the shadows lately.

LOL they got Stephen Russell for Corvo, that's fantastic and hilarious. Square took away Thief from him and ruined the franchise and now he's the star of a game which was heavily inspired by Thief.

Glad Sam Rockwell got a part. Very underused actor in Hollywood especially for Comedy films.

I really enjoyed the first Dishonored game and looks like they are pulling out all the stops for the next instalment. Can't wait to hear more!

TheCommentator3003d ago

I hope it's better than the first one. Even the Thief reboot was better than Dishonored and it was pretty bad. Couldn't even manage to finish Dishonored I got so bored with it. Same with Bioshock, which also plagerized good games poorly. Besides COD, Dishonored and Bioskock are the two most overrated games I can think of, but to each their own. That's why we make choices.

Differing opinions are fine and all, and I don't really care either way, but please, if you're going to use a big word like "plagiarize," please, at least take six seconds from your busy day to check a dictionary to make certain you are using it correctly. Otherwise someone like me will have to spend six seconds pointing out that you did not, and who needs that embarrassment?

TheCommentator3002d ago

Dishonored was just a badly mishmashed Thief/Assassins Creed with no originality and it lietrally copied almost every stealth aspect Thief was known for. Bioshock also had gameplay which was stolen almost verbatim from Doom, from the keycard data pads right down to the creepy noises and other random atmospheric events keeping people on their toes between watercooler moments (no pun intended). You can put a cow in a dress, but at the end of they day it's still a cow. They were both about as unoriginal as they come. "Would you kindly" go bother someone else if you want to make off topic comments in the future?

Did they replace the VA for The Outsider? I thought the original actor did a pretty good job.

Avowed's director says they "don't believe in living in fear" after Microsoft closed studios

"As a developer - and as a player - it's always sad and it always sucks to see studios close and devs lose their jobs. I really hope all those people land on their feet, because I know our indusutry is better with them in it," Patel tells the outlet. "As for me and how I look at things, I guess first and foremost: I don't believe in living in fear," the Avowed director.

Microsoft's Absurd Antics Have Me Scared For Dishonored And Arkane Lyon's Future

With Arkane Austin no more and Lyon living for who knows how long, the superb Dishonored is in serious danger; Microsoft cannot be trusted.

Relientk7772d ago

I love the Dishonored series so much and really want Dishonored 3. Microsoft better not screw this up.

JEECE72d ago

I mean, I think the fans will probably kill Arkane Lyon by cooking up reasons to hate whatever they do next without playing it. I've never seen a game so artificially disliked as Deathloop.

thesoftware73072d ago

Lol, why don't we just say, we are worried about all studios owned by MS now. They will keep closing studios until they have none left ...🙄

Skuletor71d ago

Just merge them all into a single studio, have it churn out a single Call of Duty every year and call it a day, lol.

Barlos71d ago

Don't be scared, you'll be fine.

Skuletor71d ago

It's exputer, fine is one word I would not associate with them.

Profchaos71d ago

I think it's becoming clear based on matt bootys comments there's no future for any IP that can't sell above 10 million within the launch window. But is also a small game that gives them prestige

/S it's beyond a joke right now
