It’s not gameplay, but just the knowledge that Sly 4 exists fills me with so much joy. The new trailer (likely fully rendered) shows a shadow that looks like Sly climbing around city streets, with him returning to the safe house carrying a bunch of loot. It ends with the shadow turning into Dimitri, one of the more… colorful characters from Sly 2/3. It sucks to see no gameplay, but the concept looks really cool.
The game will be titled Sly: Thieves In Time. One of the theories for a sequel after 3 was that the game’d involve time travel, since Bentley makes a small mention of it during his epilogue speech. Those settings could be really cool, and I’m really, really excited for more details on this game.
The game is set to release at some point in 2012. Can’t wait.
