Dishonored Dev Assures Fans That The Series Isn’t Dead
Last month Arkane Studios Lead Designer Ricardo Bare noted that Dishonored was “resting” while they focus on other projects. To many fans, resting meant the franchise was being abandoned by Bethesda. This left many distraught over their favorite game, even with assurances from Pete Hines that they would be returning to the series eventually. According to Metro, he stated:
Look, Arkane has two studios, they’re working on a number of things. That’s no different than Todd Howard saying, ‘I’m gonna make a Fallout game and then I’m gonna make Starfield before I go back to TES6’. He didn’t say I’m never making another… there’s like, ‘We have an idea for another thing here, we have an idea for another there’.”
In a recent interview with DualShockers Bare spoke up about the interpretation from fans that Dishonored was finished. He made it clear to the interviewer, and now hopefully fans, that his intended message was misinterpreted. Here is what Bare had to say:
I didn’t say nothing Dishonored related would ever come out again. I just meant there’s nothing coming out in the immediate future related to Dishonored.”
While Dishonored is a valued title for both Arkane Studios and the fans, it seems the developer wants to explore other IPs. The clarification certainly lays bare the studios intention to return to the franchise eventually. While this may be disappointing to some, often a break from the franchise can wind up bringing about fresh perspective upon return.
