An interview on Eurogamer chats with Viktor "Victor" Antonov of Zenimax about Dishonored, Arkane's upcoming action/stealth game. He talks about the state of writing in games in general, saying: "It's been a poor, poor five years for fiction in the video game industry." He also decries a lack of variety in the industry: "There have been too many sequels, and too many established IPs that have been ruling the market. And a lot of them are war games. And they're great projects and great entertainment, but there's a lack of variety today," he tells them. "So, when you step out of this established genre, people cannot grasp it, or the press tries to find a match." He seems to suggest the solution to this lack of variety in games would be more "historical [sic] realistic" games like theirs: "And too bad there are not; I was expecting there to be 20 games like this."
