Dishonored! What a game! You’ve played it, right? If not then stop reading this stuff and go buy the game already. Publisher Bethesda is very happy with how Arkane’s baby handled itself in terms of sales. The game was the top selling title over this last weekend, which is a big deal considering this last weekend was the whole Thanksgiving / Black Friday / GoGoGadget Consumerism weekend in the USA.
Bethesda public relations chief Pete Hines has announced that Dhishonored is now considered a Bethesda franchise, which means we’ll be getting a sequel. Best news ever and equally impressive because the game came out alongside some stiff competition.
“We did terrific numbers again this past weekend,” Hines told Destructoid, “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.”
