Thanks to GameSpy for its interview with Ion Storm's studio director Warren Spector
, discussing "design, his excitement over the new Thief title, and past mistakes."
He comments on the optional third-person mode in the forthcoming Thief: Deadly Shadows
, suggesting: "It really does provide a kind of tactical awareness you don't get in a first-person mode"
, and goes on to further discuss the controversial fan reaction
to Deus Ex: Invisible War, admitting: "We made a really bad, bad decision... by not supporting drag and drop in the interface on the PC version of Invisible War, and that was unforgivable."
However, he doesn't comment on recent rumors
that have him "aiding in the design of the next Tomb Raider game"
, currently in development at fellow Eidos-owned studio Crystal Dynamics
