Rumor: Thief Sequel Announcement Set for May 11

Word that Eidos Montreal is set to announce its second project has lead forum-goers to deduce that the title is likely the fourth entry to the company's revered series of stealth-action games, Thief.

Following its announcement of Deus Ex 3, Eidos last year hinted that the title of its second unannounced game begins with the letter "T"--prompting quick assumptions of Thief 4.

But according to a recent advertisement in Edge magazine, the upcoming title also resides on GameSpot's "Hall of Fame," "Greatest Games of All Time" and "Ten Best Heroes of Gaming" lists. As Kotaku points out, GameSpot forum members soon realized that Thief is the only game mentioned on all three lists.

Eidos Montreal is predictably declining to comment on the rumors, instead pointing to May 11 as the day it will officially reveal the project.
