QTEs Out in Thief Says Eidos Montreal

November 15, 2013 - GamePolitics Staff

Quicktime events are out of the latest Thief game, Eidos Montreal announced this week. The studio removed the events because of strong reactions from the press and the community at large, although Eidos Montreal says there were not that many in the game to begin with - and there was only one in the game demo that was at E3 way back in June.

"We're not implementing them. To begin with, there were very few instances of QTEs in the game; in fact there was only one in that whole hour-long E3 demo," Eidos said. "However, given the strong reactions it evoked in the press and the community, it was an easy decision to do away with them entirely. So we're not doing it. No quick time."

It was also confirmed in the blog post that Thief will not feature any swimming levels because, "If Garrett went swimming, he would probably freeze to death."

Eidos also confirmed that Thief will feature an Ironman difficulty mode, where if the player dies, the game ends.

Thief will be released on February 25, 2014, for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.

When QTEs are done in the style of gameplay rather than random buttons to mash its great. A shame they can't improve it rather than side step it....


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Eh, maybe they tried and felt it didn't make any sense.

QTE's in thief? what were they thinking with that BS?

No swimming either... meh, nothing big there, except that I hope it doesn't mean NO swimming at all.

Some of the best entries in the original 2 games (TBH I barely count 3 as Thief.. it lost so much somehow. That god aweful game engine they used didn't help either.) were done by swimming in from the sewers or some run off.

In other words, For Everything But Wii U.
