Didn’t they kill the Outsider in the last game? I haven’t played it but I assume that’s the case

It's Dishonored there are always non-lethal and lethal ways of dealing with people. You don't have to kill him, you can save him instead, which I did on my first playthrough.

Yeah they took the biggest and most mysterious character from the series so far and instead of incorporating that kind of backstory of the Outsider to a third game which everyone would play they quickly wrapped it up in DLC with characters that didn't really have that much of a connection to the Outsider unlike Corvo. You didn't have to kill him, you could save him but the point is he's's over.

I God damn love this franchise but the fact they did this with the DLC really annoys me as I and many others would have loved to have gotten one more game with the Outsider and Corvo to finish their story together. I just don't know why developers waste stories in DLC like this when you could do things which are nothing to do with the main game.

They've even said Corvo's story is over and done with but I still think he has one more game in him yet before they changed characters. They went to the trouble of giving him a voice in the second one so I don't see the point of retiring him just yet.

However like I've said before without the Outsider what can you really do? Bring in another person like the Outsider? That would just feel a little forced and done for the sake of it because "ooops we got rid of him in a quick DLC story and didn't think it through". I'm kind of hoping they bring him back somehow or just say it's not canon.

I have no problem with a hiatus, as long as a Dishonored 3 happens in the future.

It doesn't have the following of The Elder Scrolls or Fallout it makes sense to put it on hold and bring it back en force :)

They should make more prey games, the last one was pretty good.

Love the series, but I'm excited to see something new from them!
