Eidos Montréal today confirmed the development of Thief 4, the next installment in the massively popular stealth action series.
The team behind the sequel is comprised of a number of industry veterans, all of who have worked on various triple-A titles in past years, bringing their personal expertise to their respective fields. Eidos Montréal is confident that this team will be able to create a game that not only lives up to its reputation, but also exceeds it. The same development team is also in the process of working on Deus Ex 3.
“We’re in the early development stages for Thief 4, but this is an incredibly ambitious and exciting project for Eidos,” said Stéphane D’Astous, General Manager at Eidos-Montréal. “While it’s too early for us to offer any specific game details, right now we are focused on recruiting the very best talent to join the core team at the studio and help us make what we believe will be one of the most exciting games on the market.”
Platforms have yet to be confirmed (though we're fairly sure it'll show up on PlayStation 3), but we hope to have more news on the project in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
