Just as Corvo has done in the past, the Dishonored 2 release date has just popped up out of seemingly nowhere. Details have been a little dry out of Arkane Studios and Bethesda on the title so far but they have now gone out and set a release date for us. It looks like Dishonored 2 will be joining the ranks of the Holiday Season titles as it is set to release on November 11th for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. That's a bit fewer on the platforms than was speculated before but seems to be the way of the world right now.
Sadly this is the only update we have had for Dishonored 2 since the last bit of gameplay was shown last year but the good news is that we will be seeing more of that in short order. Actually in just over a month from right now as the plan is to show everything they have off at E3 during the big press conference on June 12th. I am a bit curious as to why they wouldn't give us a nice little sneak peek at things along with the release date but a month isn't too long of a wait now is it? Maybe for some but not for me.
Of course there are planned "exclusive" updates coming to a few of the larger paid media sites out there so it won't be a complete void of Dishonored 2 news leading up to then. In fact this month's Game Informer has the rights to all of that in this month's edition. You know, because we can't let all of the information fly without being behind some paid fail-safe outlet. But we do have a few things to look forward to from here I guess.
