Arkane finally confirms, yes, Deathloop is set in the Dishonored universe

Since Deathloop’s release last year, fans have speculated that the acclaimed time loop shooter is actually set in the same universe as Arkane Studios’ popular Dishonored series – and now theorists can finally pat themselves on the back and put their cork records away: The developer has confirmed that this is indeed the case.

Creative Director Dinga Bakaba broke the news during the final episode of the Xbox podcast (thanks PC Gamer), confirming that Deathloop is “one of the future of the Dishonored world.”

When asked directly about the potential connection between the two games, Bakaba explained, “We have a number of systems [that mean] not everyone saw the same thing [in Deathloop], not everyone has heard the same song hidden somewhere, not everyone has seen every room. So it was nice to see the community picking up on the little hints we had scattered all over the place that we did indeed envision Deathloop happening in the future after that [the third Dishonored game] death of the outsider.”

“It’s something we didn’t want to do [too big a deal about],” Bakaba continued, “because [Deathloop is] its own story, with its own character, its own time period that we wanted to flesh out… But at the same time after Death of the Outsider… we always wondered what would happen after that. And when we were doing Deathloop, we were like, ‘Hey, that might be one of the things that might happen.’

“There’s a specific timeline to tie that together and there’s actually a lot of in-game cues. Some are obvious – one of them is really spoilery, so voila – but there [are] lots of little things, and some that have been under people’s noses all along [that they’re just now] find out.”

Bakaba pointed to Deathloop’s Heritage shotgun as his favorite example of this, noting the small logo on the side that was barely visible for a long time. Since Arkane gave protagonist Colt idle animations in the last Goldenloop update, it’s now possible to clearly see that the logo actually represents Dishonored’s Dunwall tower.

“So there’s a lot of little things like that,” Bakaba continued, “and then you can start to be like, ‘Hey wait a minute, if this is the Dishonored world, where can that happen? And then you can actually follow the thread and it kind of makes sense.”

Bakaba also stated that if players step back to look at the world as a whole, they will notice more similarities between Dishonored and Deathloop, from their magic and technology to their classes and disparities. “Even if that’s something these characters are running from [in Deathloop]’ he added, ‘you can see those differences are still there.’

“We tried to see everything as evolution,” Bakaba concluded, “but every time [the characters] When we mentioned the past, we were either vague enough or we naturally obscured the names. They’re talking about the Motherland, for example, and not Tyvia, but… once you know, you can unravel it all and yes, it makes sense. It was nice for us to envision one of the future of the Dishonored world. ”

Deathloop was recently released for Xbox after a year of PlayStation console exclusivity and is now available in Game Pass for Xbox and PC. So if you feel like hoping and trying to make those Dishonored connections for yourself, now is the perfect time. Arkane finally confirms, yes, Deathloop is set in the Dishonored universe
