Eidos heeft het werk dat al gedaan was aan Thief 3, door het failliete Looking Glass Studios, meegenomen. En Eidos heeft dit doorgegeven aan Warren Spector en zijn team bij Ion Storm. Warren zelf heeft zelf bij LGS gewerkt als designer en is dus de perfecte man voor de klus, zeker als je weet dat deze man het brein achter Deus Ex is en dus zeker tot het maken van meesterwerkjes in staat is.

Het zijn nog maar geruchten, maar er is dus nog hoop voor de Thief-fans, waar er ontzettend veel van zijn!An interesting rumour surfaced this weekend, with a former Looking Glass employee claiming that British publisher Eidos has plans to keep the Thief series alive. Both "Thief : The Dark Project" and "Thief 2 : The Metal Age" were developed at the legendary Looking Glass Studios in Boston, which was forced to shut down due to financial difficulties earlier this summer. Now Eidos has inherited the franchise, as well as early work which had been done on a third game in the series.

The spicy part is that Warren Spector and his team at Ion Storm Austin are apparently being entrusted with the future of the Thief series. Warren is certainly an obvious choice to continue the Thief series - he is himself a former Looking Glass designer, and briefly worked on the original Thief early in its development before leaving for Ion Storm, where he produced the excellent Unreal-engined conspiracy-laden first person game "Deus Ex". At this stage it's only a rumour, but hopefully we will know more soon...
