Arkane Not Currently Focusing on Dishonored Franchise

Over the past six years, French developer Arkane has released three entries in their steampunk immersive sim series, Dishonored, each of which has been received fairly well, including last year’s Death of the Outsider.

While Arkane has announced their current plans for the future of Prey, with several pieces of DLC and a standalone VR title, fans have been curious whether the studio’s next full title will take place in Dunwall. In an interview with VG247, Arkane lead designer Ricardo Bare claimed that the developer is not currently working on a new Dishonored game, saying “I can’t say definitively what might happen down the road, anything could happen, but [Dishonored] is resting for now.” Whether that means Prey 2 is in the works or the studio is working on a brand new IP, it’s promising to hear that Arkane is open to returning to their popular line of assassination titles in the future.
