Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad writer Gennifer Hutchinson has said that while she loves the Dishonored video games, she’s not actively pursuing a television show based on the series.
“Let me write a Dishonored TV series, you cowards,” Hutchinson jokingly tweeted a couple of days ago. IGN picked up on the tweet, following which a number of publications claimed that Hutchinson was eyeing a Dishonored TV series.
“That’ll teach me to make brazen jokey tweets about IP I love,” Hutchinson wrote to IGN after her tweet made rounds. “Seriously though, it’s a fun ‘what if?’ but in no way an active pursuit.” She later issued the following clarification:
Hi friends! Since this got way bigger than I expected, some clarification! I love the Dishonored franchise, but my tweet was me sharing that love, not indicating any serious plan to pursue it. Though I adore it, these things are much bigger than a single ‘lemme do this!’ tweet.
I have some projects I’m super excited about (that I can’t discuss) currently on my plate! But sometimes I like to shout about the IP I love. That’ll learn me.
I also would never seriously demand a job AND end said demand with ‘you cowards,’ y’all.
Although Hutchinson has put the rumors to rest, I can’t help but wonder how a Dishonored TV show would turn out.
Back in August 2018, Arkane Studios confirmed that the series is resting “for now” so the likelihood of a new release anytime soon is pretty low, especially since next-gen is around the corner. In the meantime, you can enjoy a tabletop RPG.
