Eidos Montreal has told Connected Consoles that the studio is fully dedicated to upcoming title Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and that Thief 4 will not be making an appearance at the E3 conference.
I could be wrong, but hasn't most of the staff from Looking Glass left Eidos?
Hard to tell. The guys from Looking Glass went to Ion Storm for Thief 3 and then Thief 4 is being developed by Eidos Montreal...hard to keep track of where the Looking Glass guys could be these days. -__- Still, it's good to know they haven't been forgotten. :D
I can wait a little while longer.
We'll probably just see the first footage later this year I expect. But I'm certainly looking forward to Deus Ex: Human Revolution!
I'm looking forward to Deus Ex also. The first one was an amazing game, if its half as good I'll be happy.
Second one was absolute poo though so im hoping that they use the first as the blueprint for the new one.
Second one wasn't terrible by any means, just they somehow managed to change almost everything for the worse (universal ammo, simplified augmentations, stupidly small environments ...) relative to the original. Was still one of the best games of 2003.
E3 related rumours sure are being shot down very quickly these days. I remember GamesThirst put up a rumour saying Natal would be released this month and 2 minutes later, it was proven false by Microsoft. But even if Thief 4 coming to PS3 exclusively was less of a stretch, this clarification just goes to show we shouldn't be jumping to conclusions till the big show.
Having Thief 4 as a ps3 exclusive would never have happened – it just dosnt make any sense. Although the game is brilliant, its not insanely popular or even well known as a franchise to the average console gamer.
ah they finally realized what a typo error THI4F was? thiaf ftw !
ahh crap, now there's nothing to look forward to for me
I was looking forward to seeing it at E3 =[
