Eidos Montreal to Reveal New Game in "the Upcoming Months"
Written By
View author's profile

Eidos Montreal is set to reveal a new, unannounced title in “the upcoming months.” That’s according to the LinkedIn CV of Alexandre Richer, a generalist/UI programmer at Ubisoft.

Richer left his role at Eidos Montreal in January this year, a position he held for 18 months. During that time he helped develop “the user interface for  currently unannounced project, using Scaleform technology.”

Richer added, “More details to come within the upcoming months.”

So what is it? Well, that “upcoming months” tease hints at the probability that the project is heading to next gen. Meanwhile, some corners of the industry are whispering that it could be Thief 4.

It’s not the first time we’ve heard such rumours, of course. Back in June some footage from the game leaked, then in August it was revealed that the game had been pushed to next-gen consoles.

We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like a good bet.

I suppose it is awfully wishful thinking that I'm hoping it might be another Deus Ex game already?

Human Revolution was astoundingly brilliant.

Agreed, macd, defiantly in my top list of games for this gen, it was amazing.

I would be nice to see a new Thief game. I'll settle for the Thieves Guild missions in Skyrim now to quench my need to steal and kill from the shadows.

Random request, thinking of stealth and what-not, can we have a new top down Commandos game please! Thats been to long coming too!

Thief had an amazing feel about it. The footsteps leading to robbing jewellery and much more.
Seriously didnt enjoy deus ex, just didnt feel the gameplay. I dont know how it got
A 9 on IGN, not saying its a bad game just not a top notch one either.

Thief 1, Thief 2 & Thief DS, I played & still have them.
They were some of my best memories during secondary school. They really changed some of my value towards the art of stealth and staying quiet. Even now, as I walk in the street at night, I too would try to walk among the shadows and stay alert to all sounds around me.

Truly looking forward to Thief 4.

I agreed above guy mention that maybe Kane & Lynch 3 and I agreed with staff wrote here story about Eidos Montreal's new title on way in near future and it is Thief 4.

Well I want Theif returns because it is long time no seen Theif since 2004. Come on Eidos bring it back and tell us that you working on it!!

Well if not Thief 4 then I do maybe expect it is Deus Ex: Human Revolution 2 or Deus Ex 4. :)

Well I do like see Thief, Deus and Kane & Lynch returns in one year (my image will be cool and dream come true). Hehehe

I think it is important to bring Thief first for it is returns because long time awaits for it.

New IP game will be nice but most of people agreed with here and me and others that we want "THIEF 4"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Deus Ex was in my top ten games of this generation. I really cant say how much I loved every minute. I have never played a Thief game, I have only heard of its legend. I am very interested either way. I trust this studio.

You are CLEARLY ignorant! Deus Ex: Human Revolution is about stealth, although you "can" play it guns blazing (and die more, too).

The Thief series was THE game that introduced gamers to stealth-games... and if you actually played it... you would remember it didn't suck! Granted, Thief 1 & 2 has dated graphics (which is WHY I'm hoping they will remaster the first three in HD on the 360 - a boxed set, or Games on Demand), but the games are still awesome! "Thief: Deadly Shadows" ONLY plays well on the original Xbox (or PC), but not on the 360. There are video glitches which can confuse the player on what is being seen (torches, smoke, etc... through solid objects).
