Thief 4 officially announced by Eidos Montreal - Website launched
As expected Eidos Montral today announced that the studio is developing Thief 4 and announced the new part of the stealth game series.
The Thief series is well known. The innovative gameplay and the good atmosphere always inspired the stealth community. Up to now there had not been any hints about a successor - Thief 3: Deadly Shadows was the last part of the series. But today Eidos Montreal let the Cat out of the bag.
With a short message General Manager Stephane D'Astous announced that Eidos Montreal develops Thief 4 and is currently looking for staff for the project.
Eidos-Montréal is excited to unveil, our previously secret second title in development at the studio, as Thief 4, the next instalment in the legendary series!

"Were in the early development stages for Thief 4, but this is an incredibly ambitious project and a very exciting one. 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."
The official Thief 4 website has also been launched.
Our German colleagues from pcgames.de revealed that Thief 4 is already under way - and that Eidos might be responsible. Thief 4 is scheduled for end of 2009, early 2010 is more likely though. We are excited to sneak through dark catacombs and chambers again in order to steal golden goblets.
