Montreal Community website
features a community Q&A on Thief
upcoming revival of Looking Glass Studios' classic stealth series (thanks

and are removing the soul-crushing "gameplay" element of QuickTime events, true

razorstealth: You mentioned QTEs in the last
Take 5. How are you planning to implement these so that they don't break

Easy, we're not implementing them. To begin with, there were very few instances
of QTEs in the game; in fact there was only one in that whole hour-long E3 demo.
However, given the strong reactions it evoked in the press and the community, it
was an easy decision to do away with them entirely. So we're not doing it. No
