the-thiefThe past couple of months had brought us rumors and hints regarding the existence of Thief 4, but now everything is official, as Eidos Montreal has confirmed that Thief 4 is really going to happen. Great news, huh?

Don’t get way to excited for now, though, since we have absolutely no details about the upcoming game (except for the fact that it is in its very early development stages). However, I am sure that Eidos Montreal will manage to amaze us all whenever the project will be ready.

“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-Montreal. “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.”

And while they’re recruiting world class developers for Thief 4, they’re also working hard on Deus Ex 3, which should hit the stores soon-ish.
