Is it true that Dishonored IP has been shelved forever after the sales performance of the second game?

Forger314d ago

No. Last week they said the franchise is still alive.

I don't remember seeing anything about poor sales performance! Did it really perform so poorly?

All I remember is having an absolute blast with it! It's a fantastic game!

Yep, Dishonoured 2 sales were down on teh first game. Bethesda lainched the game to close to juggernaught that is Call of Duty, and then they refused to provide early review codes to game journalists, so there we're no early reviews.

Well iirc Dishonoured 2 launched a week after Call of Duty Infinite Warfare and Bethesda refused to provide review copies. So naturally sales we're alot lower than the first game, becasue of all the negative hype that surrounded the "no review codes" fiasco.

A simlar thing happened with Prey (which is an absolutely phenomenal game), Bethesda refused to send out early review codes. And surprise, surprise that game didn't sell well either.

SO yeah, you have Bethesda to blame.

Yet again the sales are not bad. Prey and Dishonoured were both profitable.

Are we ignoring he also directed Prey (2017)? Either way I'm looking forward to this project of his.
