Dishonored 2 (4)

The release for Dishonored 2 is just over two months away, and the fans are excited to get their hands on the game. While the first Dishonored game was quite solid, Arkane Studios is further pushing the boundaries of the action stealth genre in Dishonored 2.

Future Dishonored Games

Speaking with Gamereactor, Arkane’s Harvey Smith kind of hinted that the team intends to explore more cultures in the future sequels of Dishonored. As the first game took its inspiration from British cities, and Dishonored 2 takes its inspiration from European cities.

When asked about whether Arkane Studios might take inspiration from other cultures for the future games. Smith said that limiting their view means that the team has very narrow world view, and might be possible to go beyond our own locations.

Yeah, I think that’s a good question because it points to how we have a very narrow worldview. We’re obsessed with our own locations. I’m American, we obviously came from Europe. My ancestors are Swiss and a few are British in some flavour or another, but isn’t that like a very narrow view of the world? And so yeah, I absolutely believe that over time we could explore more corners of the Empire of the Isles.

He also said that the studio has their own calendar they they do not want to create something that resembles entities in the real world.

But again we try to not just be an analogue to Earth… we have our own calendar, our own seasons, and so what would be interesting in the future, is to keep looking for new interesting historical notes and factional conflicts and then going back to the sort of human principle behind them. But yeah we’d definitely be interested to folding more cultures into it I think.

In related news, Harvey smith recently revealed that Dishonored 2 can be completed without killing anyone.

Dishonored 2 is scheduled to release on November 11 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
