GOOD GOSH YES! Thief was my favorite series back in the day... I just hope they get the great voice actors back and Thief 3 had a problem with the cutscenes... they didn't have the same style as the first 2 games... I want those style of scenes back. CAN'T FREAKING WAIT!

sounds great, except the part, that it might be in modern setting.

Probably the best available description of what might have been came from the developer known as Krypt:

Basically Thief 4 was going to be a retelling of the original games, except set in modern times. It would have modern versions of the same characters from the old games, who's roles would have been translated to modern day parallels. Some of the old maps were going to make a reappearance as well. To be clear, it was not going to be anything like Splinter Cell or similar games. Garrett wasn't going to be turned into a James Bond type of guy with a bunch of gadgets or anything like that. He would still be the dark, sarcastic loner who uses his own skills and ingenuity to do his thieving, not gadgets. I don't think we were even going to let the player use a gun, just simple tools and weapons. The art direction would have been similar to the steampunk from the previous games, just translated to modern times, with the same crowded and dilapidated city streets and such. I guess the Silent Hill series is the closest reference I can think of for what we had in mind for looks, but it would have been pretty different from that too. We were going to somewhat modify the "rules" of the modern world to make them more conducive to the Thief-type stealth game also, and not necessarily realistic. There wouldn't be light switches that anyone can just turn on to reveal you, the enemies wouldn't all have machineguns, there wouldn't be lasers, etc. Basically we were going for a very similar type of gameplay to the original series, just in a twisted steampunkish modern setting.
It was only in pre-production for about two months before the Ion Storm "end times" began, so the concept never got much more fleshed out than this, but that's basically what it would have been.
It would have used the same engine as T3, but we were hoping it would be optimized a bit more and get some new features.

So it's going to be a Splinter Cell if its modern times.

Modern day Thief? No, **** that **** off thanks.

The quote about the medieval thing being 'done to death' is a complete load! That has to be one of the nicest and most beautiful settings for a game... Seriously, there have not been that many Medieval FPS games released that are worthy of mention. I would KILL for another one. Honestly, name your target. George Lucas? Greedo? Uwe Boll? I'll do it.

It wouldn't have been on the Wii anyway, so you would have hated it.

FarCry2 had nothing to do with the first, so why should Thief series be any different.

Re: Thief 4!
 
Oh and also I am not getting worked up over what may not even be the story/setting... I will just wait for details and I have faith they won't screw it up royally if they do decide to make a more modern one.
