Thief 4: Dagger of Ways…

A year ago I heard a developer mention a modern day reboot of Thief. Stunned I hadn’t heard of it already, I asked when it was coming out. Never, he said – it was cancelled almost ten years ago.

“When we pitched to Eidos, the feedback was ‘no supernatural stuff’,” my secret source told me. “We were going with a 100% realistic game set only in the real world. Many designs and decisions changed by the time the project was killed.”

Eidos and Ion Storm may have cancelled the project, but I got hold of the internal pitch document, spoke to the team and published the full exclusive reveal of Thief 4: Dagger of Ways on Eurogamer.

Also, it went up at the same time as my article about Troubleshooter, Warren Spector’s original pitch to Origin Systems for Deus Ex.
