Smith has teased a new project after wrapping up work on 'Dishonored 2' in Lyon and moving back to the Austin, Texas branch, with the former site now concentrating on PC and PlayStation 5 game 'Deathloop'.

Speaking to Vandal, he said: "At the end of 'Dishonored 2' I went back to Austin.

"I'm not on 'Deathloop', I'm on another [project], working with those who made 'Dishonored' and 'Prey.' "

Smith didn't offer any more information on the upcoming title, including what it actually is or how long it's been in development for.

It's also currently unknown when a public announcement can be expected, or whether the release will be part of the 'Dishonored' franchise.

What we do know is that Microsoft will be publishing after its acquisition of Arkane parent company Bethesda.

Commenting on the takeover, Smith added: "I would say there has been no change at Arkane so far, but if I were to imagine the ideal partner, thinking of all the publishers and the people I know who work for them, it would be very very difficult to find a better partner for Bethesda than Microsoft.

"They fit perfectly."
