reports hearing from users who have experienced lost or
corrupted saved games in Thief
, the stealth reboot. Oddly, the problem
started yesterday, and apparently could be worked around by setting resetting
the computer's date to April 2, suggesting this may be some sort of cruel April
Fools' joke. The response they received from Eidos, however, seems to indicate
this is serious. "We're aware of an issue that seems to be affecting some Thief
players, preventing them from completing some levels," Square Enix tells them.
"We're taking this very seriously – as a first step we're reading as many
reports of the issue as possible, working to replicate it internally, so that we
can understand what's causing it. We're sorry for any disruption to your game
today, and we'll update you as soon as we have more information."
