Bethesda announced Dishonored 2's release date yesterday. The sequel to the highly acclaimed action stealth game by Arkane studios will launch on November 11, but the wait to see the first gameplay video will be much shorter, as that will happen during Bethesda's E3 Showcase.
Still, in the meantime we'll learn a lot more on Dishonored 2 thanks to the GameInformer coverage. The first piece reveals the cast of voice actors, and it's one filled with talent, with many voices that will be familiar to those who love watching TV shows.
Stephen Russell will voice Corvo Attano (which makes sense, since Corvo is now much older). He has a lot of experience as a voice actor for games.
Known For: Thief: The Dark Project/Thief II: The Metal Age (Garrett), Fallout 4 (Nick Valentine/Codsworth), The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Prince Clavicus Vile/Mercer Frey)
Erica Luttrell is going to voice the other playable character, Empress in exile Emily Kaldwin. She had minor roles in iZombie, Lost Girl and Intelligence recently.

Vincent D'Onofrio, who recently became popular for his interpretation of Wilson Fisk on Daredevil, will play Luca Abele, Duke of Serkonos, the southernmost isle and setting of Dishonored 2.

Rosario Dawson is an accomplished actress that you may recall as Sin City's Gail, as well as Claire Temple in Daredevil, Jessica Jones and soon Luke Cage. She will play Dreadful Wale Captain Meagan Foster.
