Just a couple of small updates, the latest issue of edge magazine has this teaser-
Eidos Ad on Flickr - Photo Sharing!
A blind man on a galloping horse couldn't miss the edges of the Thief logo peeping out from behind that banner, and a few folks over on the TTLG forums have imposed it over the top and it's a pretty good match.
Also, a regular page called The Spy in UK PC gamer magazine has this to say-
Finally PC Gamer’s ‘Spy’ all but reveals in his usual way in the next issue (on sale 7th May) that Eidos Montreal are indeed working on Thief 4. Incidentally the ‘Spy’ alludes that the previous plans for a new Thief to be set in the modern era have been shelved.
I guess we'll find out for sure on May 11th (also the final day of my thirties
) but it seems pretty conclusive so far.
Only an announcement for System Shock 3 could make me happier than the prospect of a new Thief game
