Well, somebody at Bethesda really messed up. During a Twitch stream earlier today, Dishonored 2 was accidentally confirmed. Whoops.

Bethesda has been taking down YouTube videos containing the actual leak. A mic was apparently still on as developers were candidly talking, and near the end of the clip, somebody comes in to tell them that the mic is on and everything is being picked up.

The video above, which is audio only, features Harvey Smith, co-director of the first Dishonored, with Raph Colontonio, president of Arkane Studios.

Of course once something is on the Internet, it’s always on the Internet: There are multiple mirror links being thrown up on popular gaming forum NeoGAF.

Considering Bethesda’s E3 conference is slated for tomorrow, it just means we got this bit of information a day early. Either way, it seems that the company is taking the gaffe in stride.
