Default Rock, Paper, Shotgun - Deus Ex 3 Art & Thief 4 Speculations?

April 6th, 2008, 13:54
Rock, Paper, Shotgun has a nice piece of concept art that came to them via a French site and a circuitous route. It's authenticity as art from Deus Ex 3 isn't proven but they discuss their reasons for believing it genuine.
In related news, a couple of days ago they speculated Eidos Montreal is also working on Thief 4, after spotting job positions with some strong hints:
To quote the statement from their site: “Eidos-Montréal is proud to announce the recruitment for our 2nd “AAA” project. … A hint! The title begins with the letter “ T”.” Which doesn’t mean much until you notice - as a forumite of theirs did - the previously existing line on their site here: “The first two games we develop will revive successful franchises.” With the Montreal Studio already at work on Deus Ex 3, it’s an easy leap to the further adventures of Mr Stealy rather than the further adventures of the-also-Eidos-Owned-Terracide. Or, less facetiously, they could be Tomb Raider… but that franchise doesn’t need reviving. Let’s be honest: It’s almost certainly Thief. They wouldn’t have said the teasing “T” otherwise.
