Bethesda announced today that a new first-person shooter, called Dishonored, is currently in development by Arkane Studios, who was responsible for Arx Fatalis, Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, and had a hand in the development of Bioshock 2.
There are basically no details about the game just yet aside from an ambiguous “2012” release date and, as I mentioned, it’s a shooter.
At Arkane we have a passion for creating deep, immersive game experiences,”said Colantonio [creative director on the game]. “To be able to finally share details of our project is both extremely exciting and satisfying.”
A full unveiling is planned for the August issue of Game Informer and the game will eventually be coming out for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
