Rumour: Thief 4 'switched to next-gen consoles'

Long-in-development sequel could release next year, claims report

Eidos Montreal's Thief 4 has been switched to next-generation consoles.


That's according to the latest issue of OXM UK, which reports in its gossip section that the long-in-development revamp will likely release late next year, when Xbox 720 (codename 'Durango') is expected to launch.

CVG sources indicate the report is accurate.

Theif 4 is said to have been in development for four years, with one designer even claiming to have completed the game's final level.

The long-in-development sequel has recently seen its audio director and lead level designer both depart for other studios, along with several concept artists and other designers.

Eidos Montreal job listings reveal the Deus Ex: Human Revolution studio is working on a next-gen action adventure game, with mentions of "player choice" and "stealth".

If the OXM report is to be believed it's Thief, not necessarily Deus Ex, that's being geared up for the next consoles.

When contacted Square Enix declined to comment.
