Dishonored success paves the way for future Dishonored games

Dishonored's commercial success turned Bethesda's one-game gamble into a franchise, Bethesda spokesman Pete Hines told Destructoid.

According to Hines, sales of the stealth title exceeded the company's internal expectations, adding "we clearly have a new franchise."

"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," he 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 [Studios]. We clearly have a new franchise."

Yesterday, Dishonored's first DLC offering, Dunwall City Trials, was announced for a launch on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on Dec. 11.
