One of the highly anticipated games fans have been waiting for from Bethesda is no other than Dishonored 2. With the eminent success of the original game, there's no doubt that the studio will pursue a follow-up. And why should players be actually excited about it? Well, that's because it's the "biggest, most important" title that the video game company has ever had.
The existence of Dishonored 2 is due to the first game's popularity. Not only was it well received by both fans and critics, it also proved to be a potential franchise in the making. Fortunately, its sequel is on its way. After all, Bethesda has already confirmed its plans to introduce two more titles before 2016 ends -- namely, Skyrim and the said sequel.
In an interview with MCV, the studio's very own Pete Hines pointed out that Dishonored 2 is the "biggest, most important thing" that they have. They see the sequel as their own game of the year.
Sure, Skyrim will do well in the market; however, unlike Dishonored 2, the company doesn't entirely need to take "a whole lot of time explaining what that is." With the follow-up, the company is set to spend its focus on making it a very unique title -- one that is quite distinct compared to the first one. Hines iterated that they want to show to the community that their team "has been really ambitious" since day one.
It's completely understandable that Bethesda has so much faith in Dishonored 2. The overwhelming reception of the fans to the first game is already enough for them to make such stand. Simply put, the original title has created what appears to be a perfect hype to make it a successful franchise.
Dishonored 2 is slated to hit the shelves come November 11. It'll be made available across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. In fact, pre-orders can now be processed.
