From Strategyinformer.com: "Despite calling the Thief titles my favourite gaming series, I honestly believed that Thief 4 (from Deus Ex: Human Revolution developer Eidos Montreal) was going to be cancelled. It had to be next-gen at this point which would increase the costs, and historically despite being brilliant the series had a very niche appeal – a pure stealth game set in a medieval fantasy universe that over three games had killed two well-respected developers? It was a risky proposition to bring Thief back, but I was overjoyed to see that Square Enix decided to take that risk and run with it into full Next Generation reboot territory. Today I got to see the game running for the first time. To say I was excited would be like saying a burrick has a slightly gassy stomach or The Cradle isn’t really a good place to leave your kids – a gross understatement".
