Dishonored 2 and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus are both critically-acclaimed experiences, but they failed to break records when it came to sales. Due to this, many gamers thought that a sequel to Dishonored 2, or another chapter in the Wolfenstein saga, might've been put on hold.
In an interview between Metro GameCentral and Pete Hines, Bethesda's Senior Vice President of Global Marketing and Communications, provided some answers. When Hines was asked about Wolfenstein III and the rumors that it was shelved, he said, "Absolutely we're making a Wolfenstein III. MachineGames said on stage that they're taking a break from the larger story to do Wolfenstein: Youngblood. But we all have to see how that ends."
His response to whether there would be another Dishonored game was even clearer. Hines stated the following.
I wouldn't read too much into that... Arkane has two studios, they're working on a number of things. That's no different than Todd Howard saying, 'I'm gonna make a Fallout game and then I'm gonna make Starfield before I go back to The Elder Scrolls 6.' He didn't say 'I'm never making another...' there's like, 'We have an idea for another thing here, we have an idea for another there.'
Hopefully this should put the rumors to rest. It's clear that the games won't be out for a number of years. Hopefully by that time Bethesda will figure out ways for them to appeal to more gamers.
