Eidos teaser maybe, probably hints at Thief 4

It seems that Eidos Montreal — currently working on Deus Ex 3 — is gearing up to announce their second project soon. How do we know? Because it posted an image on its Web site that says they’re going to announced their second project soon. How about that?

But what could it be? The Internet has speculated, and they’ve come to the conclusion that it could possibly be the long-awaited (once in production, then canceled) Thief 4. There is, however, some confusion. One user on the Through The Looking Glass forums is positive that the font used for the teaser is the “classic” Thief-series font, Carleton Regular. (Of course!) Another user, quite frankly, just doesn’t see it. 

Compelling evidence, to be sure. More compelling, however, is an old Eidos Montreal job listing that stated the developer was “proud to announce the recruitment for our 2nd ‘AAA’ project … A hint! The title begins with the letter ‘T’.”

Oh, E3. You can’t come soon enough.

[Thanks, Derek!]
