Eidos Approaching Thief 4 in the Same Way as Deus Ex

The highly-anticipated sequel to 2004’s Deadly Shadows was originally announced in 2009 but a bit quite until now.

We now hear from OXM that the Thief is being approached in the same way as Deus Ex.

Eidos is reportedly reviving the sequel by Eidos and CVG note that the desired approach means it’ll it will offer a mixture of new features and classic ones.

“We have more international staff working on Thief, which brings a great flavour to the game,” Stephane D’Astous told OXM.

“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.

“Deus Ex was the kick-start of this new series of great games, and Thief will be part of that, 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.”

CVG also report that Thief 4 will feature some sort of online component and utilise Unreal Engine 3.
