don't quote me on this but more than likely the demo will be out before the retail release.
as that is what usually happens.
when is another question entirely.
i think i rember deus x iw comeing out a few months before the reatail release.
so my best guess if you see the demo then the retail release should come out within a month (at best) perhaps 2 months.
at worst it could take 6 months.
jmho.

just wondering here...,,,But how many times have they restarted this game??...This game as taken for ever to compete...I'm not getting mad..but why so many delays?

Hopefully T DS will be super good!!!


One more thing will my ATI 9500pro 128 megs beable to run this game?;)

The DE:IW demo came out only a few weeks before the release, if I rember correctly. I'd expect the same from thief.

A 9500 Pro ought to do fine. DE:IW did OK on them, and Thief DS is supposed to run a good deal better then DE:IW.

Hopefully after the reputed performance improvements to DE:IW have been integrated into the engine.

I sure hope it'll be enough. I just bought one so that I can play T3 when it comes out. I was afraid my Geforce 2 MX wouldn't cut it. I went by the requirements for DX: IW, and met or exceeded their recommended requirements.

It's more than a fear. It is a fact. No MX card will work at all. One needs a bona fide pixel shader.

Acronomic, that guy nows says it was Thief 2, not a demo for Thief 3. Thought everyone should know.
