Thief 3: Deadly Shadows Box ArtGeneral manager at Eidos Montreal, Stephane D’Astous, has confirmed that a fourth entry to the first-person stealth action series, Thief, is currently in development at the studio, although it’s too early for the studio “to offer any specific game details.”

“We’re in the early development stages for Thief 4,” said D’Astous, “but this is an incredibly ambitious and exciting project for Eidos.” D’Astous continued on to say that the development staff on the project comprise the studio’s “best core team.”

Another highly regarded series is also getting a sequel courtesy of Eidos Montreal in the form of Deus Ex 3, the development lineage of which intersects with that of Thief, as entries to both series were worked on by Ion Storm Austin, at the time headed up by veteran Warren Spector.
