Bethesda and Arkane’s new stealth-action IP, Dishonored, appears to have been a hit, according to Bethesda’s PR Chief, Pete Hines.
Hines commented on Dishonored’s sales and later went on to hint at a possible sequel to the game.
I can tell you that Dishonored is far exceeding our sales expectations, which is especially cool considering it’s new IP facing a host of well-established franchises this quarter…We did terrific numbers again this past weekend, both in stores and on Steam, where Dishonored was listed as the #1 selling title over the holiday weekend. And Dishonored has really sold well overseas.
So, we’re very pleased and appreciate all the fans that have supported Dishonored and Arkane. We clearly have a new franchise.
Dishonored, developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks, is available now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
