I loved the crap out of Thief: Deadly Shadows, especially the terrifying Shalebridge Cradle level where you had to get around a long abandoned orphanage-turned-insane asylum, brimming with these creepy creatures called Puppets. Thief 4 has been in developement for several years now, but since it’s official unveiling in 2009, the game’s been unusually silent [insert silent thief joke here].
Thanks to the Internet however, we might have some new information on the game. According to some info gleaned from various LinkenIn profiles, Thief 4 will use the popular Unreal Engine 3, and include some sort of online mode. Head past the jump for more details. Among the profiles are an animator, programmer, and level designer whose profiles say they’re working on Thief 4 on the Unreal Engine.
Add to that an online programmer whose profile mentions their involvement in the “networking, gameplay, debugging, online and offline tools of Thief 4” and another that says pretty much the same thing, only for an unannounced project that may or may not be Thief 4.
What do you think? Are you looking forward to Thief 4, and more importantly, what do you think of a Thief game with multiplayer?
