According to the latest issue of Edge, Eidos Montreal will be revealing their second project, Thief IV, on May 11.
Details on the sequel are sketchy at best, though according to a comment made by former Eidos CEO Rob Dyer back in 2005, there’s a strong possibility the follow-up may take place in modern times, as opposed to the medieval setting of past iterations.
"People want another Thief, too. We'll make that series more modern, though...the medieval thing's run its course," Dyer said.
Ion Storm Austin was the original developer behind the project before the studio folded in February 2005. It will be interesting to see where Eidos Montreal takes the series and how the game will look on current generation hardware. Stay tuned for more information.

I still have the last Thief on PC. It came out on original xbox too. It was a great game.

Not sure I can do a pure stealth game... Always more of a Metal Gear type than a Splinter Cell (and therefore Thief) type.

I would love to get in on some Thief for PS3. I really wish they kept it medieval though.

Thief 2: The Metal Age is my favorite game of all time.

My only hope is that if Thief IV does come to PS3, then they throw in Deadly Shadows with it (just like Starbreeze/Atari did with the new R1dd1ck game). That was an xbox system seller for me. I must have played through it at least 10 times. IMO, the most beautiful game on the system.
