Dishonored 2 is being developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. Though the first Dishonored was developed by both Arkane teams in Lyon (France) and Austin (America), its sequel was developed largely solely in Lyon as Arkane Studios Austin were focused on developing 2017's Prey. Both studios, however, collaborated on the game, and playtested each other's builds.
The game runs on Arkane's new internal "Void" engine, as opposed to Unreal Engine 3 that was previously used in Dishonored. The Void engine is based on id Tech 5, with art director Sebastien Mitton saying the team kept "[roughly] 20 percent" of the original engine. Arkane removed unneeded elements from the engine like the mini open world and overhauled the graphics. The new engine is intended to improve in-game lighting and post-processing to help the game's visuals, and allows the game to visualize subsurface scattering.
