Rumor: Thief 4 to be announced for PS3

Update: Apparently, according to Edios, there’s to be no Thief 4 reveal at E3, as it will be concentrating solely on Deus Ex: Human Revolution for the event – per Connected Consoles.

Nothing was said about an announcement before or after that though – not saying there will be either – just throwing that bit out there is all.

Thanks, Splatterhouse.

Original: A new entry into the Thief series got a bit of legs today, thanks to a tweet from Sony pointing to the placeholder site for Thief 4.

Not much to go on other than the tweet, but it’s out there at least.

If you look in the Twitter feed, the post has been removed, but thanks to lovely Google and its cache magic, there it is for the world to see.

The place holder has been up for quite some time, so has the Facebook page, so we’re curious as to why PlayStation would be tweeting this unless there is some kind of reveal planned at E3.

Considering the game was said to have grown “leaps and bounds” back in November – it may just happen and at least the tweet gives us an indication of one of the platforms it will be released on.

Keep your fingers crossed, then.

Thanks, ABG.

    Nah… I’m sure it will be an exclusive DLC thing again. This game can’t be exclusive.

    I thought they had already said it would be released on pc? Surely this just means it’ll be on the PS3 as well.

    It would be very unlike Ubisoft to make a exclusive PS3, PC or 360 title.

    @8 It’s Eidos/Square enix, not Ubisoft.

    No, it will be a multi-release you can bet the farm on that. The tweet just pretty much “confirmed” it was coming to PS3 is all. Just wondering where and how it will be revealed is all, personally.

    It’s multiplatform.

    #14 4 years ago
  15. Erthazus

    Then it’s probably an exclusive DLC thing i’m sure.

    I had always assumed it would be a multiformat release inclusive of the PS3 anyway.

    As Steph says, I don’t think this points to any sort of exclusivity the game just technically hasn’t been announced for consoles yet.

    As far as I’m aware both this and Deus Ex are running on an updated version of Crystal Dynamics Tomb Raider engine, so the technical groundwork is already there. It also stands to reason the game’s already been shown in some form at a pre-E3 event, the same one where the press were screened the DE:HR trailer that’s going public tomorrow. Maybe we’ll see something of this before the event itself as well.

    On another note: How the fuck does a 4 represent an “E” ?

    @19 I hate it when numbers are used as letter in any capacity. Same with all caps in a company name. Makes my OCD explode all over the place.

    It was originally an “E”, but they cut its ends off and stuck them back together to make a “4″.

    wtf is that news? just because sony playstation did a tweet about thief4 there will be an announcement… There is no logic in this!
    It just could be jeff rubbenstein(sony’s n.a communauty manager) posting a link from a game that he like a lot thats all… nothing more nothing less…

    @23 I don’t think you fully understand the love folks have for this series, nor how bad people have been teased to the point of crying over it. If you have information that proves it was “nothing more or nothing less” than an link to a game the com mgr likes, then by all means, please feel free to give us the information and we will update it – but be sure and give it to the other sites that posted it as well — just to be fair to all on the internet.

    Until then, it stays in the “rumor” sector.

    Much like Deus Ex, Thief 4 will obviously head to consoles. Edios want to atleast make some money on the game.
