btw.. um Thief 3 was talked about ;d

Eidos Interactive announced the continuation of the immensely popular Thief franchise for PC CD-ROM and the PlayStation 2 Computer Entertainment System.

Eidos Interactive is pleased to report that further iterations of the Thief franchise, will be developed in the Austin, Texas offices of Ion Storm and will be lead by Warren Spector, who contributed on the original Thief: The Dark Project. Warren has also produced other highly praised titles including System Shock, Ultima Underworld, and most recently, Deus Ex. Several members of the original Thief team have already signed on with Ion Storm to continue working on the series and more announcements are expected soon.

Warren Spector states, ?With Thief, LookingGlass Studios created an entirely new kind of game and, in so doing, changed the face of gaming forever. We here in the Austin office are thrilled, proud and a bit humbled at the prospect of continuing and building on the work of the talented men and women who made Thief and Thief 2. Several of us cut our teeth working with those folks, our design philosophies were developed in collaboration with them and, plain and simple, we're fans ourselves. To all the other fans out there, we say: Rest easy. We respect the Thief tradition and we'll do everything in our power not only to live up to everyone's justifiably high expectations but to surpass them.?

?This is great news for all fans of the Thief series,? states Eidos? Vice President of Development, Nick Earl. ?Warren has proven his game design talents time and time again. The next Thief will undoubtedly be the greatest to date.?

No release date has yet been set for the tentatively titled ?Thief 3.?
Two screens linked from over there btw... Alucard

All hail the greatness that is Warren Spector. All hail, all hail!

I suddenly feel all giddy after seeing those screenshots, as if I were a cheerleader who just saw the high school jock take his team shirt off. Which follows with a high pitched squeel and then faint.

Uh, so basically they are saying that Thief 3 is in development, something which we knew a year or two ago. Furthermore, it will probably be out on PS2 as well.

BAh, Warren Spector has become a marketing clown, last I heard he isnt even in charge of DX2 anymore. Now he dedicates his time peddling the Looking Glass legacy to PS2 and making other spinoffs (like a DX one).

Did you learn nothing from the flop that was DX on Ps2? You sold out, man. You sold out.

I'd love to see Thief 3 come to PS2. Just to see how badly it would bomb and cause useless Eidos to lose more money then they can afford to. The console community would not warm to Thief in the slightest. Its like giving them RTS games. Then again make the RTS exclusive and suddenly it'll be the best thing since sliced bread..
