During Bethesda's E3 briefing, the publisher officially announced Dishonored 2. The reveal was expected after an accidental Twitch broadcast almost confirmed it.
Following Bethesda's first-ever E3 briefing, the company officially announced Dishonored 2. The game is currently in development at Arkane Studios, the same developer behind the 2012 original. The sequel is slated for release on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One, Arkane's Harvey Smith confirmed.
A trailer revealed the game's second protagonist, Emily Kaldwin, the princess from the original Dishonored. Players can also be able to choose to play as Corvo Attano, the first game's protagonist. As with the original game, Dishonored 2 wil also allow you to play pure-stealth or just murder everyone.
Here's the official plot synopsis for Dishonored 2.
"Dishonored 2 is set 15 years after the Lord Regent has been vanquished and the dreaded Rat Plague has passed into history. An otherworldly usurper has seized the throne from Empress Emily Kaldwin, leaving the fate of the Isles hanging in the balance. As either Emily Kaldwin or Corvo Attano, travel beyond the legendary streets of Dunwall to Karnaca--a once-dazzling coastal city that holds the key to restoring Emily to power. Armed with the mark of the Outsider and powerful new supernatural abilities, hunt down your enemies and forever alter the fate of the Empire."
Unfortunately, right now there is no official release date for the game.
