Bethesda Says Dishonored Sales ‘Exceeding Expectations’

Bethesda is pleased with the commercial success of Arkane Studios’ acclaimed stealth title Dishonored.

Speaking with Destructoid, Bethesda PR head Pete Hines said that the game has “exceeded expectations,” although he declined to give any actual sales figures.

“I can tell you that Dishonored is far exceeding our sales expectations, which is especially cool considering it’s new IP facing a host of well-established franchises this quarter,” Hines said. “We did terrific numbers again this past weekend, 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.”

Good news if you’re a fan of Dishonored, which I definitely am — although I wouldn’t be interested if Co-director Harvey Smith wasn’t involved, and he’s said he isn’t sure if he necessarily wants a Dishonored sequel. If one does happen, though, hopefully Arkane Studios takes a look at the list of things we would like to see in Dishonored DLC, which could apply to the sequel.

Everything sounded positive till I heard the word “franchise.” Bethesda known for keeping a new reputation with their franchises. *Spoiler Alert* With the ending closing a lot of the plots and sub plots. Hopefully we dont see any cash cow like Bioshock.
