Leaked Dishonored 2 logo reveals possible sequel - Report

An anonymous source says we'll be hearing more from the Dishonored franchise at this year's E3.

A possible (and take this with a huge grain of salt) teaser image for Dishonored II has surfaced online. Posted on All Games Beta (via NeoGaf), the photo shows a possible logo for the sequel to 2012's stealth action-adventure game Dishonored, followed by the text, "Witness the full reveal at E3 2014!" The hashtag #DarknessOfTyvia sits at the bottom of the image, and what looks like a PlayStation 4 light bar is visible just off-screen.

GameSpot has reached out to Bethesda and is awaiting comment on the image's veracity.

The image marks the first time any media has surfaced teasing a Dishonored sequel. Should the image prove to be fake, it would not be the first time a Bethesda title has been falsely advertised. Late last year, alleged Fallout 4 teaser website "TheSurvivor2299.com" proved to be an elaborate hoax that was put together in order to get Bethesda to reveal the game earlier.

The simplistic "II" pasted next to the regular Dishonored logo doesn't make the image look terribly convincing, but what do you think? Fake or legit?

 Since theif came out I rented it and returned it in the same day. I started my second playthrouhg of Dishonred trying to complete it using stealth. I forgot how much fun this game was. Hope this is legit. Can't wait if it is.

Dishonored is a million times better than this thief BS. Better storyline,better weapons, better ai, better stealth, better graphics and visuals better everything. sorry thief fanboys its sucks!

Can't tell if fake or not, but I really hope it's not. Dishonored is one of my favorite games of all time. It took some time, but I went through the entire story without getting spotted once. Dishonored is what got me so into stealth games, and I bought Thief in an instant because of it, but I still think Dishonored is better than Thief.

after seeing how great the next-gen Thief is (dont belive the incompetent Stealth reviewers here and at IGN, ...Thief looks gorgeous and is ingame enough fluid....besides it plays epical for a Stealth game... aside of a few minor iusses)


just imaging the things they can do with next-gen Disonored OO..

Makes sense to make a sequel, but then again to me Jade Empire 2 made sense and BioWare never made one so what the hell do I know. We'll see i guess.

Hmm, i wonder if they would make the new character mute as well. I think that's one thing people couldn't relate to, but in the DLC they used a voiced character.

I hope it's true, and I hope it's a open world this time.

If this is real, awesome!

I wonder what sort of story they'd pull out...

Does the game even end in a way that a sequel is possible?

I do expect some info will be released regarding Dishonored-II this year with the release date set in 2015. Having said that I think this is probably a fake pic. " # " before Darkness of Tyvia bothers me.

I'm still waiting for the DLC prices go down a little 1st. £16 for 6 missions when I payed £12 for the original game doesn't seem right.

Bring it on. But it better have a whole lot for me to do after the story is over (both times.)

I want Arkham style challenge maps and a huge open world. Do it.

Fake or real it's not a good title. They should name it something else or do even better and create a new IP.

@thiefblows  


Dishonored's storyline was worse, the characters were boring, the AI is worse, the stealth mechanics are worse, the graphics are worse....about the only thing I liked better about Dishonored were the powers and the combat. 


You have to be joking when you say Dishonored had better graphics. That's beyond ridiculous. If you actually think that, you know absolutely zero about graphics tech.


The textures in Dishonored were extremely low resolution and the character models were very low quality. Dishonored also had a lot of pre-baked lighting and ZERO ambient occlusion.


Thief has so many graphical techniques and effects that are just absent in Dishonored: tessellation, depth of field, massive amounts of particles and alpha effects, screen space reflections, parallax occlusion mapping, horizon based ambient occlusion (HBAO+), much higher quality character models, much higher resolution textures, more geometry in the environments, etc. Thief is dramatically better in every single category.

@elbauto

?? 

You mean how everyone that played Dishonored played Thief and universally thought Thief was a piece of shit?  Dishonor was designed by Thief fanboys and those that made the last game, they created Dishonored and ended up out doing it.  I'm fine with this.

@Droverson So you purchase every new Intellectual Property announced?  I want a Dishonored sequel because I liked the original.

@ninboxstation  Hmmmm. Interesting. So you're saying the IGN and Gamespot reviewers are incompetent? As far as I can tell, their positions require two things: opinions and the ability to communicate them. Having opinions doesn't require competency, so you must be remarking on their inability to communicate those opinions.  

I guess all I can say is just imaging the things they could do with good communications skills, and that maybe Thief IS ingame enough fluid. I will have to give the epical Stealth game a shot, then.

@MonocleOwl I'm afraid Bioware is slowly going the way of the dinosaur since EA bought them.  They made some truly great games, but then again they were responsible for ME3 and DA2.

@nomoredroids @ninboxstation  I'm not saying he's right about Thief, because he's wrong about Thief, but they definitely don't know what they're talking about other than Kevin.

@Boddicker @MonocleOwlMass Effect 3 was outstanding from a gameplay perspective.  You cannot tell me you enjoyed Mass Effect 1 and ME2 and did not love Mass Effect 3 up until the Citadel?  The problem was they had a hard time tying off the story at the end.  In truth A LOT of creators have this problem.  Stephen King, Robert Jordan. 


They wanted a definitive canonical end but leave something for fans to talk about after it was over.  It did not work out.  The ME3 rage was understandable, I raged too, but when the company GOES BACK and gives you a clearer canon ending for free along with additional content throughout the game, all at their cost you have to respect that.  Also the updated ending is a hell of a lot better.  Tied things off awesomely.


DA2 was meant to be an expansion, but was turned into a full fledged game.  Not the best idea, especially since they pulled resources to finish ME3 and SWTOR.

@ladies_man_xxx @Evanduil Yes it would. Just not in the sense that we've grown accustomed to seeing "open world" implemented. If you were to get rid of all the loading screens in Dishonored and all the levels were one cohesive world, it would technically be open world but highly gated. They just need to make a massive version of what they already did. It would be a very unique type of open world.
