Dishonored is one of those games that you if you haven’t played yet, you should. It has to be considered one of the most creative new IPs in years, not to mention one of the best games of the year. This is coming from someone who wasn’t sure that it would all come together but was happy to report when I reviewed the game that it came together beautifully.
Destructoid recently caught up with Pete Hines, Bethesda VP of PR and he noted that the game saw a huge boost in sales during Black Friday last week and continues to do well in other territories. Whoever picked the game up last week probably got it at a discounted price which is a steal..trust us. You will not be disappointed. Hines went on to say that the game far exceeded their sales expectations which they thought was quite impressive against many of the established IPs that had sequels out this year.
All that was good but then he said the one sentence that will have Dishonored fans over the moon.
“So, we’re very pleased and appreciate all the fans that have supported Dishonored and Arkane. We clearly have a new franchise.”
Dishonored is the kind of quality experience that we rarely get, it didn’t try to copy any existing formulas and instead blazed its own path. I can’t wait to see what the folks at Arkane Studios come up with next. If somehow you are still on the fence about Dishonored, read our review here and we’re sure you’ll be convinced to pick it up.
