Dishonored was arguably the most successful original IP to come out in quite a while, leading Bethesda’s Pete Hines to eventually state that the publisher plans to turn it into a full-blown franchise. It looks like those plans may already be coming to fruition, since developer Arkane Studios is hiring for what seems like a next-gen sequel to the game.

A job posting on the official site for Zenimax (the firm that owns Bethesda) calls for a Senior Engine Programmer whose duties would be to “maintain and optimize the code for PC and next gen consoles.” In addition to that, the requirements involve having “at least one AAA title shipped” and being “passionate about FPS and RPG games,” genres which Dishonored definitely falls into in one way or another, and of which elements could be expanded upon in a sequel.

Now, hold your Dunwall-rasied horses. There’s no concrete evidence that this is absolutely a Dishonored title, as it could very well be a game from an entirely new, unannounced IP. Still, the cards definitely match up right, and considering the enthusiasm of Bethesda for the Dishonored IP, we find it safe to say that this rumor actually pertaining to a Dishonored 2 is the most likely possibility.

Stay tuned for much more news about a possible Dishonored sequel should more info arrive about it. What do you think it should be called? Disavowed? Disheartened? Disoriented? Gosh, I could do this all day.

RUMOR: Xbox One S All Digital Images, Release Details Leak Ahead of Official Unveiling

xbox one s all digital

Images of a discless Xbox One S have leaked online, confirming rumors from last year.

Winfuture.de revealed the pictures it acquired yesterday, as well the name Xbox One S All Digital, prices, and a launch date. Check out the pictures down below.

The console would allow users who are less oriented in the physical media space to take advantage of an all-digital device.

Some of the speculation regarding all-digital hardware pictures a cheaper, maybe even smaller model. However, yesterday’s leak suggests that, while the Xbox One S All Digital may come bundled with games, the price will stick at around USD$250 with no real change in physical appearance.

The only visual difference between the Xbox One S and the Xbox One S All Digital is the lack of a disc drive. Otherwise, the two slimmed down pieces of hardware are visually identical.

As well as a look at the console, the website says that an official reveal will come April 16 with a release following on May 7.

The pictures uncovered do not come from an official source, so holding off believing everything here is for the best. That said, a device such as this makes sense for Microsoft considering the Xbox Game Pass and the inevitability of a more digitally-inclined market.
