Each time I've spoken with anyone from Arkane Studios, I've always snuck a question about "transmedia" in there. Transmedia, for those unaware, is the exploitation of your source material across more than one media platform, and in the case of Arkane and Dishonored, seems like a perfect way to pull from the seemingly deep and rich world the developer has crafted for their forthcoming single-player experience
Every time I've aksed I've been met with a "we're just focusing on the game right now" type of response, but my question may have been answered, in short, by today's new "Tales From Dunwall - Part 1" Dishonored video.
While short, the video's purpose is to begin fleshing out, at least from a background perspective, the game-world we'll all be trouncing through in two weeks time, and it's as stylish as all get-up. (In fact, I'm as excited about seeing more of these as I am about playing the Game.)
