Vice President and head of public relations and marketing at Bethesda, Pete Hines, in conversation with Destructoid, revealed the company’s take on the success of the title,
“I can tell you that Dishonored is far exceeding our sales expectations, which is especially cool considering it’s new IP facing a host of well-established franchises this quarter.
We did terrific numbers again this past weekend, both in stores and on Steam, where Dishonored was listed as the #1 selling title over the holiday weekend and Dishonored has really sold well overseas.
So, we’re very pleased and appreciate all the fans that have supported Dishonored and Arkane. We clearly have a new franchise.”
The game sold well worldwide and has received much critical praise so it comes as no surprise and to the joy of many that Bethesda plans on continuing the title.
