Dishonored announced for PC, X360 and PS3 – Spiritual Successor to Deus Ex?

Bethesda today confirmed that it will publish Dishonored, an all-new first-person action game under development at Arkane Studios. Dishonored will be the first project for the studio since being acquired by ZeniMax in 2010 and in case you were unaware, this particular studio was behind Arx Fatalis, the amazing Dark Messiah of Might & Magic and Bioshock 2.

Under the direction of co-creative directors, Raphael Colantonio, lead designer on Arx Fatalis, and Harvey Smith, lead designer on Deus Ex, Dishonored is set for release on X360, PS3 and PC in 2012.
Details on Dishonored will be revealed in the exclusive cover story in Game Informer’s August issue, which ships to subscribers in early July 2011 and hits newsstands on July 15th. From what we know so far, Dishonored will be a First-person stealth/action adventure game.
Raphael Colantonio said:
“At Arkane we have a passion for creating deep, immersive game experiences. To be able to finally share details of our project is both extremely exciting and satisfying.”
