awards_studio of the year


Arkane Studios

Headquarters Lyon, France Founded 1999 Website

The technical and creative consistency that makes Dishonored feel so special is the mark of a studio working at the height of its powers, and an achievement indeed considering that half the team is based in Lyon, France, and half in Austin, Texas. Dishonored is the game where many of Arkane’s skills and ideas have really paid off: its firm belief in player choice, experience in finely honed melee combat and communicating a sense of firstperson physicality. We can’t wait to see where the studio goes next.
