Dishonored dated

Dishonored will be released in North America on October 9, and in Europe on October 12, publisher Bethesda has confirmed.

It means Arkane Studios' striking firstperson stealth game, which was announced last July, is mere months away. The October date is especially interesting, coming just a day after Irrational Games delayed BioShock Infinite from October to next February.

Bethesda president Vlatko Andonov said: "We are pleased that Dishonored has captured people's attention. We are looking forward to sharing lots more information about the game leading up to its launch in October."
