Thief III officially named?

EB Games gives us a clue.

The third game in the venerable Thief series will be called Thief: Deadly Shadows, an EB Games product page briefly proclaimed this week, before returning to the game's working title, Thief III, when eagle eyed gamers stole the link away and pasted it all over the place in anticipation.

Officially publisher Eidos still calls the game Thief III, but that's always been acknowledged as little more than a working title. And although a premature product page update isn't always significant, GameSpot and others are citing "informed sources" as confirming that it's more than mere retailer excitement.

Thief III, or Thief: Deadly Shadows, is being developed by Ion Storm and should be released on PC and Xbox later this year.
