View author's profile

Thief and Deus Ex studio Eidos Montreal is apparently working on an as yet unannounced third-person action game for Xbox One, though no actual details on the title have been uncovered.

It's thought that the game could be an instalment in the Deus Ex Universe, although the LinkedIn CV of Senior Game Designer Heath Smith simply notes that the project is an "Unannounced AAA 3rd person action adventure (PS4, XONE)."

The profile also indicates that the new Eidos Montreal project commenced in November 2013, probably around the time development on Thief is beginning to slow down. Thief is due out on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in February 2014.

I really liked Deus Ex and the direction it went, I'm hoping to feel the same about Thief. So I welcome this news but it's hard to guess what you will get from the publisher Square Enix; their decisions, along with sales expectations make me feel like Edios needs a better home sometimes.

If Eidos could get away from Square Enix, id be a lot more optimistic when I see news articles about them.

I dunno about Thief. I want another one, but when the developer had to take out kill streak bonuses and QTEs from the game because people complained I just saw it as the developer fundamentally misunderstanding what game they are actually making to begin with. Which doesn't bode well for it even after those things have been removed.

I wish Arkane were actually making it... :/
