Deathloop Co-director Dinga Bakaba was a guest on an Xbox podcast where he confirmed that the action-adventure game is indeed a part of the Dishonored series. Fans of both games have had their suspicions in noticing similarities between the two and now those suspicions have turned out to be true.

“There are a lot of clues in the game, actually. There are some that are abused. One of them is really spoiler-y, so voila. But there are a lot of small things, and some that were under people’s noses all the time, but people are just figuring out.”

Dinga Bakaba currently serves as the Studio Director of Arkane Lyon but previously worked as a co-director for Deathloop, an earlier press release also listed him as the game director. He said that “Yes indeed, we envisioned Deathloop to be happening in the future, after Death of the Outsider.” He also shared that Akane had made the decision to not announce it as a Dishonored game because the studio wanted the game to stand on its own. The team, however, purposely placed various easter eggs, along with shared story details, within the 2021 title to clue players the two games were connected. A detailed Reddit thread has been created by fans showcasing the many ties between the two but anyone still holding out to play the game may want to wait on reading it as it does contain a number of spoilers.

“Once you know, you can unravel everything,” Bakaba said. “And yes, it does make sense.”

GOLDENLOOP update adds crossplay support

Deathloop originally launched as a PC/PS5 exclusive but is now available on Xbox. A recent update has also added crossplay support as well.

In addition to adding a host of new features to the game, the GOLDENLOOP Update brings DEATHLOOP to brand new platforms! With this update, you’ll be able to play on Xbox Series X|S. And if you’re a PlayStation Plus (Extra or Premium) or Game Pass member, you can play all of DEATHLOOP (including the new GOLDENLOOP Update features) for free.

The GOLDENLOOP Update also introduces crossplay for PvP matchmaking across PSN, Xbox, Steam, Epic and the Microsoft Store environments. You can set your Cross-Platform Matchmaking setting to Any (all platforms) or Same (just your platform), and you can also set your Cross-Platform Matchmaking controller to Any (all controller types) or Same (just the one you’re using).

Xbox console and PC versions will also feature cross-purchase and cross-save, so if you purchase DEATHLOOP through the Microsoft Store on either Xbox or PC, you’ll be able to play it on your other Microsoft platforms and pick up right where you left off.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
