Thief 4 may be in trouble. Internet sleuth Superannuation has posted a column at Kotaku that details high-level staff turnover at developer Eidos Montreal. According to LinkedIn resumes, Thief 4's audio director, two lead level designers, a pair of senior concept artists, a senior technical level designer, a senior animator, and a senior level designer have all left Eidos Montreal since 2010.

So what? They'll start a new company and do what they did Eidos not let them.
In the meantime, Eidos will release Thief 4.
It's a win-win to us (gamers) either way, provided that neither game is going to suck.

Csimbi> It's a win-win to us (gamers) either way, provided that neither game is going to suck.I have my worries about this!

Eidos has a bad reputation to hit the final nail in the coffin of otherwise perfectly good titles, yes.
But hope is the last thing that dies, so I keep my fingers crossed.

What a bull comment , dumb down for consoles... They don't need a console as an excuse to fuck up a pc game, Diablo anyone? Just a piss poor excuse to shift the blame and consider yourself in denial. Is this how far the goal post have shifted? Any piss pc game in future , must be because it's coming out on console. If the pc game is pish, and isn't coming out on console, it will just be patched and that's a big difference of course.....
Before consoles existed we used to rip the devs a new one! They used to answer on forums and LISTEN. This was the equivalent of twitter back then. People considering buying the said game, came to the forum, read the bad bugs, omissions etc and didn't buy it until addressed. Today they buy a pc game without waiting or hammering devs via the many portals and blame a console, even if the game is SHIT on the fucking console also!
So incredibly intelligent... Not.

They left cuz the game is gonna suck shit and they don't want their names tagged to it because they know there will be backlash from the fanbase. Thief to me was a huge bore so it's no big deal to me either way.

I hope it's not the case. If it was, they should change the release date and make it right.
