Thief 4 development ramps up

With development on Deus Ex: Human Revolution wrapping up for its August release, the Thief 4 team is now occupying Eidos Montreal’s main production floor.

“It’s their turn now,” said Deus Ex: Human Revolution art director Jonathan Jacques-Belletete to Eurogamer.

“We’ve ramped down, they’ve ramped up. The main production floor is occupied by them now. We’re occupying a lesser space.

That’s not to say that the Deus Ex team has moved onto Thief 4. Both teams are entirely separate, and Jacques-Belletete has “no role at all” in Thief 4‘s development.

“It’s a really kickass team [working on Thief 4],” he said, “some great people.”

“The Art Director is a good friend of mine, and it’s in really good hands.”

Unfortunately, the Deus Ex director couldn’t say anything about the actual game.

“I cannot say anything about the game apart from that it’ll rock your shorts.”

Thief 4 was confirmed in May 2009. Since then, the only real update we’ve heard of the game is a couple of leaked images from inside the walls of Eidos Montreal.
