The original Thief game, Thief: The Dark Project established an entirely new genre of stealth based game play. Eidos-Montréal, which is also currently producing Deus Ex 3, say that it has recruited the very best core team for the development of Thief 4. The team is comprised of industry veterans who have worked on an "incredible collection of AAA titles" and who each bring personal expertise in their respective fields.
“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-Montréal. “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.”
Development is under way and the team at Eidos is looking to recruit more talent for the project.
