CVs Suggest Thief 4 Uses Unreal 3, Has Online Features

Thief 4 is living up to its shadowy heritage by refusing to give absolutely anything away. We've barely seen sight nor sound from the stealthy sequel since it was revealed in 2009, but the eagle-eyed folks over at NEOGAF have spotted some incredibly suggestive CVs from Eidos employees. Two resumes state that Unreal Engine 3 is being used to power the title... and more interestingly, "online options" crop up in a linkedin profile.

So what could these "options" refer to? The Thief series has historically never featured multiplayer in any capacity, and though many companies are convinced that competitive multiplayer suites are an essential part of new games, it seems unlikely that that Eidos aren't about to start now. Instead, this could refer to patches, downloadable content, leaderboards or cooperative elements - and hopefully Garrett will emerge from the shadows later this year to spill the beans.

Garret has always been my favourite video game voice (actor is Stephen Russel). I just found out that he's also in Skyrim and Fallout 3, among others.

And all fantasy games should have water arrows!
