From VG247: "Now Prey is out in the wild and Dishonored’s story has wrapped up with the release of Death of the Outsider, what does the future hold for Arkane Studios?"
all dishonored needs is better marketing.
The games both sucked, and marketing can't help that. The series needs to take a dirt nap, IMO.
@TheCommentator Dishonored 2 is the best game this gen and easily the best stealth game ever made. Not sure any individual element of either game sucked let alone the games as a whole sucking. Confused as to what lead you to that conclusion frankly.
The second Dishonored was a bit better than the first, but the mechanics were still off, the AI was still poor, and the stealth was nowhere as good as any of the games it ripped off to even get the gameplay to where it is. Even the last Thief game, which was the worst in the series, was better than these. Hitman blows them out of the water. TBH, I feel the same way about Dishonored as I do about Bioshock. Both game series are highly overrated. To each their own though!
and a better engine.
Dishonored 1 is one of the best games ever made. But Dishonored 2 was a disaster. Horrible level design, awful story (a ripoff of the DLC for the first game) and don't even let me start on what they did to the Outsider.
I really want Dishonored 3, the game was fantastic I hope they go back on their word about Corvo's story being finished, I still think they could do one more with him teaming up with a new character while Emily is left behind. I am p***** they closed the Outsiders story in DLC without Corvo, him and the Outsider should have had a conclusion together in a third game.
i haven't played 2 but I loved 1, was 2 just as good or better for you?
2 is pretty amazing as well. Worth the cash at full retail, never mind the sale prices you can get it for now.
2 is legitimately one of the games of the generation for me. I despised it at first -- you kind of have to meet it halfway and customize the difficulty to your liking. The default hard difficulty is way too easy and the default extreme difficulty is way too unforgiving. If you can strike a balance between the two it's great.
Dishonored 2 is worse in every way than Dishonored 1. Except maybe graphics. Everything got worse, from the level design, to characters, to story.
I think this is the best idea for now. It's as he says, the current stories/timeline is finished. There's no reason to keep exploring more. If they come around for Dishonored 3, I hope they make a brand new cast and a new setting that feels different.
Really hope we get a Dishonored 3 eventually
Piss off with the seamless multiplayer
Why? It makes games like dark souls and monster hunter much better.
Those games have the scope for their multiplayer aspects. Arkane are good at solo, stealthy single player games. It's getting like last gen with all the tagged on multiplayer overkill.
No one said it's going to be tacked on. Way to give Arkane Studious the benefit of the doubt.
That's some close minded talk right there. Piss off with a new idea? Yeah okay. Sounds dumb but so did the wheel. You'd be the cavemen to say "the wheel? sounds dumb, piss off"
Maybe they should just have good marketing for those games instead of shoving MP (something nobody asked for in this series) to boost sales.The only reason it sold poorly was because they did very little to market it and ofcourse their review policy did not help. MP is not the solution. marketing however is.
I don't really want multiplayer in games like this, but whatever, there are other games to play.
I'm okay with Dishonored being on hold Death of the Outsider wrapped the series up quite nicely but the fact their future titles will have integrated MP upsets me.
Dishonored is a absolutly fantastic game but Prey real stole the show last year. They basically made a Bioshock game in space.
Damn... I loved Bioshock is Prey really like that? I thought it sucked...
If you liked everything about Bioshock from combat, exploration and atmosphere then this game will not disappoint. Prey was overshadowed by many games last year so it didn't stand out as much but it's a great game.
I enjoyed both Dishonoured games very much especially the second one. Looking forward to Arkane's next game, hopefully they have more puzzles in them..
Love Arkane but that's incrediblely disappointing. Almost no one makes games like Arkane anymore, they've nearly perfected the immersive sim with games like Dishonored and Prey, and with hardly anyone making those type of games I'd hate to see them stray to far from it. It's an absolute shame so many "gamers" complain online about not getting enough unique singleplayer IP but then don't buy games like Dishonored, Prey, Wolfenstein, (and non Bethesda stuff like Deus Ex etc). They then also complain when devs make statements like this as they try to increase sales when they don't have enough. Maybe if some of y'all on this site put your money where your (very loud) mouths were we wouldn't see statements like this from SP devs.....just a thought.
Stealth games i avoid like the plague thanks to a Bond game years back .
