Thief 4: Returning Voice Actors Important

Stéphane D’Astous has told us that getting the same voice actors back for Thief 4 is something that Eidos-Montreal are taking “very seriously.”We spoke to D’Astous, the general manager of Eidos-Montreal, shortly after this afternoon’s announcement that Thief 4 is in the works.While he was reluctant to talk about the specifics of plot, setting, and the like, when we asked whether or not Eidos-Montreal was trying to get in touch with the original voice cast for recurring characters, D’Astous responded as follows:”Something that is extremely clear in the forums and in the comments from the fans is to re-use the voice of Garrett, and this is obviously something that we’ll consider very seriously.”This isn’t exactly a confirmation that we’re going to see Garrett back in the game, but if recurring characters are even a possibility, I’d guess that we’ll be stealing stuff from the same time period. Considering the fan adoration for Garrett and the amount of attention D’Astous is paying to what people want, I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to assume the master thief will at the very least make an appearance.
