Dishonored executive producer, Julien Roby, has responded to claims made by Electronic Arts' Frank Gibeau that releasing new game franchises this late in the console cycle is too risky, saying gamers are becoming tired of playing so many sequels.
While Mr Roby acknowledged that "as long as the game is good" people "will want to look at it", it didn't necessarily mean that saturating the market with sequels was a good direction for the industry. He said that if "it gets a good review and it's marketed propertly", it's probably going to be a success.
"I think people are getting tired of just playing the same thing over and over," said Mr Roby.
He said he hoped people tried Dishonored "for the fact that it's trying to do something a little different than those other games."
