Eidos Confirms Thief 4

Eidos Montréal general manager Stephane D’Astous has confirmed that the company is currently developing Thief 4.

"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,” he said. "We’re in the early development stages for Thief 4, but this is an incredibly ambitious project and a very exciting one."

No platform or release details were announced, although it’s likely more information will emerge at next month’s E3 event.

“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," D’Astous added.

To date, the stealth-action series consists of 1998’s Thief: The Dark Project, 2000’s Thief II: The Metal Age and 2004’s Thief: Deadly Shadows. Looking Glass Studios developed the first two titles, while Ion Storm Austin developed the third game in the series.

Eidos Montréal is also currently working on Deus Ex 3 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Earlier today Edge reported that Eidos has additionally confirmed the development of new entries in the Tomb Raider, Hitman and Kane and Lynch franchises.
