As yesterday's trailer
revealed, there'll be no more Stephen Russell
in Thief: and there was much anti-rejoicing. While the Thief/Looking Glass community is inevitably and understandably up in arms about Garrett's larynx replacement operation (the inevitable petition is here
, if you want to fruitlessly sign it), I imagine the game's sailed too far across the development ocean for Eidos Montreal to want to turn their ship around at this point. They have at least attempted to justify their ditching of the guy who's stoutly been with us for three Thief games previously, arguing that it's because they wanted to mo-cap and voice record one actor simultaneously.
