The Cancelled Modern-Day Thief Reboot/Sequel

Recommended Posts

I heard from a few scattered sources that instead of the Victorian-inspired only a few centuries in the future of the medieval steampunk time Thief 2014 was in comparison to the original trilogy, there was supposed to be a modern-day type reboot/sequel of the original trilogy, where you played as a modern burglar, but one who ALSO gets entangled in supernatural phenomena. Has anyone thought of trying to make that, but as a different name than "Thief", since Eidos probably still wouldn't want to let someone use the idea despite them abandoning the concept?

i think this is more offtopic topic, because people dont want to switch themes or help (much).

Thief Simulator is not really comparable to Thief apart drom playing a thief. It is a nice idea, but has no real story other than "you are a thief that tries ro make a living". I have started it, but have not played it for some time.

That's it, freyk! So, the point is, could a modern-day Thief type game, featuring an expert burglar who encounters the supernatural on a job, ever get as much of a following as Thief/TDM, which takes place in a more "plausible" location of experiencing horror whilst sneaking, a fantasy world?
