Yesterday Bethesda announced Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, a standalone entry in the Dishonored franchise. As shown by the title, Death of the Outsider is necessarily an addition to Dishonored 2, but a new story set in the Dishonored fiction. That’s not to say that the two aren’t related; Death of the Outsider, which has players in the shoes of assassin Billie Lurk with her former mentor, Daud, looks to follow the events of Dishonored 2. Keeping the theme going, Billie Lurk has her own unique suite of abilities and gear to fuel her path of vengeance. The goal, killing the Outsider, will almost certainly have big implications for the Dishonored franchise, though it doesn’t necessarily have to mean the end of the series.
Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is scheduled for release on 15 September 2017.
