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: Fable 4 Story, Gameplay Details Leak Ahead of E3

Published

Fable 4 will abandon its typical setting of Albion and firearm combat for a brand new, medieval-themed open-world, a possible leak suggests.

A video of the upcoming game has supposedly been viewed by reddit user LagSwag1 who quickly shared the information.

The screenshot below appears to show a brief story synopsis of a new world built upon the ashes of Albion and Fable 3’s Aurora. The two lands have been ‘reduced to fables’ by a mad king, who rebuilt the Spire and wished for an asteroid to strike the planet.

Now in a new era of a medieval-styled world spanning new continents and a Heroes Guild has survived behind a demon door. The leak also appears to describe specific old Fable links such as prophet Theresa and Jack of Blades. However, whether or not these links will be main features of gameplay or if they are alluded to as myths, history, or lore is unclear.

Fable 4 will feature first or third-person camera options, features in-depth character creator, incorporates multiplayer, and also strongly relies on time travel, perhaps as a mode of fast travel.

Though, again, not officially confirmed, the leak suggests the game will also benefit from using the Unreal Engine.

Forza Horizon developer Playground Games has taken over the mantel of producing the next Fable game, so how these leaked details may relate to the game remains to be seen. If the leak is accurate, fans can look forward to an update at Microsoft’s E3 press conference June 9.
