Forget Thief, the stealth genre may have a new king. Released last October by developer Arkane Studios, Dishonored was a brilliantly realized stealth action game that proved there’s still plenty of room for innovation in the genre. I wouldn’t have predicted a sequel reveal anytime soon, but that may very well be the case here. If this leaked off-screen photo of a slide from a behind closed doors presentation is real, an announcement may come as soon as E3. I’d also like to know what that “Darkness of Tyvia” bit means, because Google isn’t proving very helpful.
I called Dishonored “delicious” in my review of the game, saying it “mixes elements from some of the best games of the action and stealth genres while successfully bringing plenty of ingenious ideas of its own.” If you haven’t played it already, this is very much a game worth experiencing.
