Have you played Dishonored yet? The folks who made it wrote out a great deal of lore to flesh out the game's steampunky, alt-fiction, whale-filled world. So it stands to reason that they might want to make a sequel.


But designer Harvey Smith isn't sure. Speaking to me in an interview last week, Smith said he kinda wants Dishonored to be a one-shot deal.

"Part of me would love to see future games leverage this world," he said, "and part of me would love it if the vault door was just closed and that's it. This is your one view into the Empire of the Isles and into the city of Dunwall."


"Are you leaning one way or the other?" I asked.

In response, Harvey just laughed. "I can't say!"

Just finished Dishonored - luxuriated in every moment of it. So immersive and such a painterly look. But if Smith wants to make a Bioshock Infinite over a Bioshock 2 (a fitting comparison in so many ways) and hand off the rights to another dev, I'd be absolutely fine with a gaiden of Bioshock 2's quality. By which I mean high-quality - I think I'm one of the six people who loved Bioshock 2.
