Fans of the Dishonored franchise have been eagerly awaiting news on a potential third installment of the series, but details have been sparse. However, we’ve gathered all the information available so far on Dishonored 3, from release date to potential new protagonist and more.
Dishonored 3 Release Date
Unfortunately, there’s no confirmed release date for Dishonored 3 just yet. Arkane Studios, the team behind the series, is currently focused on their upcoming release, Deathloop, which is set to launch in 2021. This means that even if Dishonored 3 is in development, it could be a long time before we see it.
Dishonored 3 Platforms
With Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda, it’s likely that Dishonored 3 will launch on Xbox platforms as well as PC. However, it’s unclear whether it will also come to PlayStation 5, given that Microsoft has been acquiring studios and making games exclusive to their platforms.
Protagonist and Powers
While it’s not yet confirmed who the protagonist of Dishonored 3 will be, co-director Dinga Bakaba has noted that the team is interested in exploring a new character rather than revisiting existing ones. In the previous games, players had the option to play as Corvo Attano or his daughter, Emily Kaldwin, while Death of the Outsider allowed players to control Billie Lurk.
As for powers, we can expect some similarities to the previous games, with each character offering their own unique traversal and combat abilities. It’s worth noting that Dishonored has always been known for its intricate level design and open-ended gameplay, allowing players to approach situations in a variety of ways.
Although there’s still a lot we don’t know, the fact that Arkane Studios hasn’t confirmed that the series is on hold is a good sign for fans. With Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda, we may see the franchise return to its roots on Xbox platforms. Regardless of the specifics, we can expect another thrilling adventure in the richly detailed and immersive world of Dishonored.
