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.

No Caption Provided

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?

Playing through Dishonored again on PC. Great storyline. I did not like the paper cutout ending scene too much though. The PC GamePad works great in game. Can't wait for a sequel. Hope there is a Dishonored 2. Maybe it could be more open world and maybe include a construction kit for modding.

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!

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.

Just because of what happened with Thief: I've a bad feeling about this...

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.

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.

Oh come on. Why does every game have to get a sequel?

Avatar image for dussan2

<< LINK REMOVED >> So you purchase every new Intellectual Property announced? I want a Dishonored sequel because I liked the original.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Why not? I want one.

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..

Avatar image for nomoredroids

<< LINK REMOVED >> 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.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> 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.

The idea that reviews are merely opinions is also erroneous. If reviews were merely opinions they would have no more value than me telling you I like chocolate ice cream.

Avatar image for nomoredroids

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> They're giving opinions. The idea that they don't know what they're talking about when they're giving their own opinion is a pretty silly one.

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.

Avatar image for Boddicker

<< LINK REMOVED >> 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.

Avatar image for dussan2

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >>Mass 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.

awesome. Dishonored was so good, I welcome a return to Dunwall. E3 is still like 3 months away though!

I'm so hyped for this, please make it happen, make me a very, very, very happy camper. *crosses fingers and hopes to die*

Avatar image for gamefreak215jd

Please be better than both Thief and Dishonored combined.

Avatar image for heguain

Oh yea, hope it's true

Avatar image for gamingnerd121

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.

PS4, Xbone and PC only, plz! I dont like the old gen holding a game back.

<< LINK REMOVED >> heheh the bone XD

Avatar image for billlabowski

<< LINK REMOVED >> Yeah, new consoles are doing that all by themselves.

Avatar image for Mega_Skrull

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

Avatar image for prats93

Yes please. I want to cleanse myself from the disaster that was the Thief reboot.

Avatar image for angeloti83

@prats93 duuuude! new powers??? new location?i´m sold.

Avatar image for Jasurim

If this is real, awesome!

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

Avatar image for angeloti83

@Jasurim how about the outsider´s story??? :O

Avatar image for divinejester

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

Avatar image for angeloti83

@divinejester how about a prequel having the outsider as the main character??? that´d be a blast!
I´ve always been intrigued by the outsider.

Avatar image for gamingnerd121

<< LINK REMOVED >> The title may be Dishonored 2, but i'm sure it's a new story.

Avatar image for ank000

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.

Avatar image for angeloti83

<< LINK REMOVED >> before darkness of tyivia.... sound like a prequel to me...

Avatar image for MaXiMuS2oo9

I'd say thats real..

Avatar image for deactivated-58270bc086e0d

I still need to play this. Maybe soon.

Avatar image for terrariafan247

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.

Avatar image for Flonne_N_Etna

<< LINK REMOVED >> The DLCs has as much as content as the base game.
