Bethesda’s game developers accidentally leaked the announcement of Dishonored 2, a big new game that is apparently going to be unveiled at the company’s press briefing on Sunday evening at the big Electronic Entertainment Expo game-industry tradeshow.
An open microphone accidentally broadcast live to Bethesda’s Twitch livestream. The news came out in a conversation between Harvey Smith, co-director of the first Dishonored; and Raph Colantonio, president of Arkane, the studio that made the first game, Kotaku reported.
Yeah, that’s a big oops, since Bethesda doesn’t have that many games to surprise us with now. It already announced it would talk about Doom, and it unveiled the first trailer for Fallout 4 last week. The only other expected game is Battlecry, which Bethesda revealed last year.
Bethesda published Arkane’s first Dishonored back in 2012. It was a new intellectual property with a unique art style — reminiscent of Britain in the 1800s — in the fictional city of Dunwall. You play royal bodyguard Corvo Attano, who is unjustly accused of murdering his queen. He proceeds to slice open just about everyone else in pursuit of justice. And he rescues the queen’s daughter.
