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.

Relientk774d ago

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

JEECE4d 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.

thesoftware7304d 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 ...🙄

Skuletor4d 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.

Barlos4d ago

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

Skuletor4d ago

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

Profchaos4d 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

All Hopes I Had For A Prey Sequel Have Been Crushed — Well Done, Microsoft

The magnificent Prey was once again abandoned as Microsoft disregarded Arkane Austin's achievements and crucified it just for Redfall.

RaidenBlack6d ago

well, not entirely ... the main Arkane studio i.e Arkane Lyon's still there ...
Its only that, the sequel will take more time now ... after Blade & Dishonored 3

MrBaskerville5d ago

But who knows, Dishonored 3 could have been Austins next project, so might be cancelled.

RaidenBlack4d ago

Dishonored is Lyon's flagship IP ... Austin only assisted in the first one, the sequel was wholly developed at Lyon whilst Austin developed Prey.
If Dishonored 3 was indeed greenlit ... rest assured, it would've been helmed primarily by the Lyon studio.

Not even this Prey

Still longing for a sequel to the original Prey with Tommy

The studio didn't even want to call this Prey, it was just Bethesda being dicks to them for some reason.

RaidenBlack6d ago

MS closed Roundhouse Studios (ex-Human Head Studios) as well

Yui_Suzumiya5d ago

Yeah, that's who was going to do the original sequel.

bunt-custardly5d ago

Don't worry there are some other games in development that might fill that void. Look up Vigilancer.

isarai5d ago

Came here to say this, my hooes for a Prey sequel died when this "Prey" came out

Profchaos5d ago

Prey 2017 still hurts to play because what could have been looked so incredible

Profchaos5d ago

Same Bethesda basically screwed over the original developer team human head back around 2011 so it was really never going to come despite a honestly amazing trailer. I liked prey 2017 but it always held a stink of disappointment due to what we never got

FinalFantasyFanatic5d ago

I really didn't like this game, tried it because of how loved the original Prey was, played the demo of this one and thought it was garbage, it didn't feel nice/fun to play.

Keep dreaming then as Prey and Dishonored 2 did not sell well enough to get sequels.

Hence we got Deathloop and Redfall instead.

RaidenBlack6d ago

lol, Deathloop came from Prey: Mooncrash idea

Unknown_Gamer57945d ago

To everyone who cheered MS’s acquisitions, we told you so…

Inverno5d ago

Those people will just argue that Arkane Austin and Tango would've been shut down either way.

MrBaskerville5d ago

Zenimax allready put them in a tight spot by demanding them to do a multiplayer title. So it's not unlikely, considering how bad the game performed. They didn't stand a chance. MS had the money to save them and to correct Zenimax' mistakes.
