Thief 2 prototype appears in yet another leak

While not quite on the same scale as Grand Theft Auto 6 (opens in new tab) or Diablo 4 (opens in new tab), another recent video game leak has provided an intriguing insight into one of the PC’s most critically acclaimed games. Over the weekend, an unfinished prototype of Thief 2: The Metal Age (opens in new tab) appeared on the Internet.

The prototype is dated November 4, 1999, which is roughly five months before the game launched in March 2000. It was discovered and uploaded by a game preservation organisation called The Project Eclipse Team, then shared by the Twitter account of one of its members @Hwd405, as part of a much larger release (opens in new tab) of game prototypes from the late nineties and early 2000s.
