Eidos Montreal on New Thief Rumors: “Forget it”

on May 16, 2017 8:08 AM

When I saw rumors circulating of another Thief title being in development I rolled my eyes and chuckled: seemed unlikely. And I was right to be skeptical and a bit cynical: because there isn’t a new Thief in development, at least not according to developer Eidos Montreal.

For those that don’t know: a rumor — according to film studio Straight Up Films — surfaced claiming that a new game in the series was in development and planned to release alongside a feature film.

Following this rumor, Eidos Montreal head David Anfossi took to Twitter to put an end to the speculation by tweeting out the following:

Eidos Montreal has recently worked on Thief, Tomb Raider, and Deus Ex. It is now working on all-new Avengers game in a partnership with Marvel. It’s possible the developer is working on more than one game, but that game doesn’t appear to be a new Thief.
