Game news Deathloop 2 in development? The blunder of a dubbing actor

For quite some time now, Arkane has been an important studio in the video game landscape: we owe it very successful games, the latest of which is Deathloop, released in 2021 and offering a concept as a truly atypical universe. It is obviously that the developers still have a project in stock for the franchise.
A game anything but loopy
Arkane is certainly a creative studio that has its hands full. With the two Dishonored, the French studio has proven its know-how in terms of gameplay, level design, but also universe and scenario, building the loyalty of an entire community over the years. His work on Prey has also been praised, just like the one on Dishonored, released on PS5 and PC in 2021 before appearing recently on Xbox Series.
An ultra-inventive FPS based on the concept of the time loop, incorporating many particular mechanics that take some time to learn. No doubt well aware of having made an atypical title with obvious potential (and which also takes place in the same universe as Dishonored!), it turns out that the Lyonnais obviously have a surprise in the cards, without us really knowing what it’s all about for the moment.
A dubbing actor is made to talk
Today’s little leak comes from Jason E. Kelley, the actor who lends his voice to the protagonist of Deathloop, Colt Vahn. Interviewed alongside Ozioma Akagha (Julianna Blake’s voice actress, the game’s big bad), he talked about the famous first-person shooter, going back to his initial auditions for the game, which then had a name. secret code.
When asked if he remembers the code name in question, E. Kelley specifies that he does, but that he cannot reveal it “because we always call on him to work on another project under the same name. “. Immediately realizing his blunder, the actor and his comrade try to save the furniture by whistling, then claiming to have said nothing.
In other words, it would seem that Arkane Lyon is working on a new project related to Deathloop. It could be an extension, or even a sequel: as it is, hard to say but there is therefore a chance of seeing Colt again in the future, in one form or another.
