A recent job listing for Arkane Studios is leading some fans to believe a new Dishonored title that returns to the iconic setting could be in the works.
French development company Arkane Studios is known for creating experimental stealth action games that have been well received by both critical and general audiences. The studio’s newest game, death loop, was nominated for multiple awards this year at both the BAFTAs and The Game Awards. While Arkane has made some interesting titles in the past, many fans were introduced to the studio through the studio dishonored Games, and both the first game and its sequel, showcase a distinctive style in both gameplay and setting that has attracted fans for years.
With the tenth anniversary of the first dishonored Game on the way, some fans are anticipating that another title set in or around Dunwall could be on the way. This speculation arose as a result of a recent job posting by Arkane for a lead level designer. While the position doesn’t reveal what game the right candidate will be working on, it does provide some information on the position’s required qualifications that does suggest it dishonored Title could be approaching.
One of the qualifications for the job is an understanding of the design philosophy behind “action-adventure stealth games like the Dishonored series”. True, this does not exactly confirm the existence of another dishonored The title indicates that this lead level designer is not likely to join the team that is currently being worked on redfall, the next anticipated release from Arkane and a co-op FPS. That means the studio’s next title could deviate from the FPS design of redfall and back to the stealth action formula.
Because of the reference to dishonored Some fans are pretty vague and refuse to believe a new game could be on the way until Arkane reveals what it’s working on next. With redfall recently faced a delay alongside Bethesda’s other big 2022 title starfieldit is likely that even if another dishonored The game is a work in progress, development is at best in a very early stage. However, to see another dishonored Game would likely excite the majority of Arkane fans as many of them were introduced to the studio through their Dunwalll revenge mission.
Considering most of the endings of dishonored 2 Not leaving much room for a sequel, Arkane may need to create an entirely new protagonist for fans to follow. Even if the studio doesn’t return dishonored and makes a new stealth action game with a new IP, fans will still fondly remember the games set around the stories of Corvo Attano and Emily. Some dishonored 2 In fact, levels are considered by some to be Arkane’s best work.
That dishonored Series is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
