Dishonored’s Sales are ‘Exceeding Expectations’

Bethesda has informed Destructoid that their new stealth action title, Dishonored, has performed above the publisher’s expectations.

“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,” commented Bethesda’s PR chief Pete Hines.

“We did terrific numbers again this past weekend, both in stores and on Steam, where Dishonored was listed as the one selling title over the holiday weekend. And Dishonored has really sold well overseas,” Hines added.

“So, we’re very pleased and appreciate all the fans that have supported Dishonored and Arkane. We clearly have a new franchise.”

The game has met with critical acclaim since release and it’s commercial success among existing IP launches will hopefully encourage more publishers to take risks on new titles.
