Nico Cantin sounds like as if he doesn’t know what he is talking about. All I hear is “We give a shit about the legacy of the #Thief series and make it a copy of low-class games”. The video itself is a no-teller about how the game is going to be like. But taking inspiration from Dishonored, Bioshock or Assassins Creed is the biggest mistake they can make.
These games feature nothing the new Thief or the Thief series in general can benefit from. The only games a new Thief game can benefit from are the original Thief games itself!
The hiding in the shadows mechanic of the original, standing in front of a guard while being covered by shadow might not be realistic, but is at the same time charming and what defines the games. Take away this and you make it no Thief game. Right now it looks like as if they gonna drive the franchise into ruin.
