A number of details about Arkane Studio's in-development Dishonored 2 have been revealed to NowGamer by a source with knowledge regarding the game's development.
According to our source, Dishonored 2 is being developed at Arkane's Lyon studio, with Harvey Smith - co-creative director alongside Raphael Colontonio on the first Dishonored - heading the project.
Dishonored 2 could be set to star a new protagonist, with our source revealing that Arkane has had discussions about replacing Dishonored's main character, Corvo, with Emily Kaldwin.
Emily Kaldwin is a child in the first Dishonored, suggesting that Dishonored 2 will be set some time after the original.
It is likely that much of Dishonored 2 will take place in new areas outside of Dunwall (the City in which the first game is set), though our source could not give us details on exactly what locations the player will visit in Dishonored 2.
There are four islands that have been established within the fictional world of Dishonored: Gristol (where Dunwall is located), Tyvia, Morley and Serkonos, so it is unsurprising that Arkane is looking at visiting new locations in Dishonored's sequel.
