Bethesda Softworks Announce Dishonored® 2

Highly-Anticipated Follow-Up to Arkane Studios’ 2012 ‘Game of the Year’ Set to Launch Next Year


Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, recently announced Dishonored 2, the highly-anticipated first-person action game and follow-up to Dishonored – recipient of over 100 ‘Game of the Year’ awards in 2012. Currently in development by the award-winning team at Arkane Studios, the game is slated for a Spring 2016 release on the Xbox One, PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system and PC.

In Dishonored 2 the fate of the Isles is left hanging in the balance when the throne is seized by an otherworldly usurper. Reprise your role as a supernatural assassin and play as either Emily Kaldwin or Corvo Attano – both armed with the mark of the Outsider and their own unique set of supernatural abilities, weapons and gadgets. Explore a world unlike any other as you travel beyond the legendary streets of Dunwall to the once-dazzling coastal city of Karnaca. Hunt down your enemies and forever alter the future of the Empire.


“We’re excited for everyone to finally know that we’re hard at work on Dishonored 2,” said Harvey Smith, co-creative director at Arkane Studios. “We’re really looking forward to sharing more details with fans and revealing gameplay for the first time later this summer.”

Define your playstyle in Dishonored 2 by blending immersive first-person action, assassination, stealth, mobility and the game’s brutal combat system. Combine the tools at your disposal to creatively eliminate your enemies whether you choose to pursue them unseen or ruthlessly attack head on with weapons drawn. Show no mercy and leave chaos in your wake or find a more subtle way to eliminate your targets. More than ever, the choices you make will determine the outcome of each mission and ultimately the game.
