Gaming: Dishonored isn’t dead, Wolfenstein III is happening, and Assassin’s Creed III gets new life

Rumors of a early passing of Dishonored, Bethesda’s steampunky, dystopian take on a illusory land perpetually stranded in a decadent Victorian era, have apparently been severely exaggerated.

In an talk with British outlet Metro, Bethesda’s Pete Hines pronounced people shouldn’t “read too much” into earlier reports that a adventures of Corvo Attano and Emily Kaldwin had been put on interregnum following a recover of Dishonored 2, and that Arkane, a studio behind a Dishonored games, will approaching pitch a courtesy behind to a authorization during some point.

“Ah, we wouldn’t review too most into that,” pronounced Hines. “Look, Arkane has dual studios, they’re operative on a series of things. That’s no opposite than Todd Howard saying, ‘I’m gonna make a Fallout diversion and afterwards I’m gonna make Starfield before we go behind to TES6’. He didn’t contend I’m never creation another [Dishonored]… [W]e don’t usually wish to have a studio that usually creates Dishonored games and isn’t authorised to try other things.”

Further emphasizing a publisher’s joining to keep creation blockbuster single-player games — generally as Bethesda prepares to recover a multiplayer, online-only Fallout 76 — Hines also betrothed that Wolfenstein III, that will take players behind to a swap (and supernatural) story of a World War II Axis victory, is some-more than usually a rumor. “Absolutely we’re creation a Wolfenstein III,” he assured.

Don’t expect Wolfenstein III (or another Dishonored, for that matter) anytime soon, though. Bethesda’s got to get Fallout 76 out a doorway for a Nov. 14 recover date, and has several announced projects in a works — including Wolfenstein: Youngblood, a supplement to final year’s standalone Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, that is approaching to recover in 2019.


As Ubisoft readies to take players to ancient Greece with a arriving launch of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, it’s begun rolling out a DLC strategy, including a deteriorate pass that will clear tons of post-launch calm good into subsequent year. 

In further to a span of upcoming, incrementally expelled DLC story arcs that will enhance on Odyssey’s categorical campaign, a deteriorate pass will also net we entrance to a large square of a franchise’s history: a totally remastered chronicle of a 2012 Revolutionary War-themed Assassin’s Creed III.

Ubisoft suggested that AC3 (and a messenger PS Vita game, Assassin’s Creed Liberation) are being remastered and packaged in with an upgraded Odyssey squeeze — and that they’ll also be accessible as standalone games. The remasters will come with 4K and HDR functionality, upgraded graphics, and revamped gameplay controls for current-gen consoles and PC.  

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey releases for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on Oct. 5.
