Thief 4 Steps Up Development

April 28, 2011Written by Cameron Teague

With development of Deus Ex coming to a conclusion just in time for it’s August release, the keys to Edios Montreal’s main production floor now belong to the team working on Thief 4. Originally announced back in 2009, we have seen very little on Thief 4 but with the gang taking over the floor, it means we are sure to see plenty of information soon.

Speaking to Eurogamer, Deus Ex: Human Revolution art director Jonathan Jacques-Belletete had this to say:

It’s their turn now. We’ve ramped down, they’ve ramped up. The main production floor is occupied by them now. We’re occupying a lesser space.

Eurogamer pressed Belletete to reveal details on Thief 4 and asked if his team had any role in the upcoming Thief 4 to which he responded “no role at all”.

It’s a really kickass team [working on Thief 4], some great people.

The Art Director is a good friend of mine, and it’s in really good hands.

I cannot say anything about the game apart from that it’ll rock your shorts.

There you have it, Thief 4 is getting a lot more serious and that should hopefully mean new details, screenshots, and videos coming soon.
