Is it just a little ironic that, much like the series hero Garret himself, gamers have been in the dark regarding the upcoming Thief 4, having to steal any glimpses of rumors and details they can? Well, those days may be coming to an end, as it seems Thief 4 may be getting a lot of coverage soon.
Speaking to OXM at GDC (LOL), Eidos Montreal’s Stephane D’Astous had a few words to share about the game. “We have more international staff working on Thief, which brings a great flavour to the game. There are a lot of challenges to bringing back a great cult IP, but we consider it like a new IP and we are going to respect the spirit of the franchise like we did with Deus Ex. [That game] was the kick-start of this new series of great games, and Thief will be part of that. We don’t want to deliver the same each time. Our mandate is to bring new stuff to the table; games that we’ll be talking about for years.”
Anyone here play any of the Thief games? They’ve become cult classics for their non-linear design, interesting protagonist, and their approach to stealth gameplay. Make sure to linger around OnlySP for more upcoming Thief 4 info you can steal.
