Thief: Deadly Shadows?

If the EBGames listing is correct for Thief: Deadly Shadows, then a new title for ION Storm's upcoming installment in the stealthy Thief series previously known as Thief III has been unveiled (thanks GameSpot). This change has not been confirmed, but EBGames has been correct about such revelations in the past, and the break from sequel naming conventions is consistent with ION's recent Deus Ex: Invisible War.

I’m quite surprised at the response for this one. I think there are two matters which have been overlooked.

1. This game is being developed. When the Looking Glass broke, we were all sure that it meant the end of the Thief series. Regardless of the track record of ION, we’ve been given a new lease. I don’t even care if it is virtually an expansion pack.

2. The other important distinction to make is that every time a sequel to something great is made, the expectations are so high that no matter what is done the game, movie, story is doomed to be perceived as a trite copy. But had it come out with a new name, slightly different twist & new characters, people would herald it as the best game since or even better than the previous game.


I think the real problem is that people read too much about their entertainment so that when the media is released they have preconceived notions about how they should feel about it. So even if they would like to enjoy it, they can’t because they don’t know how to appreciate it.
