A secret project at Thief and Deus Ex studio Eidos Montreal has been canned, sources have told Kotaku.

Thief remains on track for release on February 28 and a new Deus Ex title is in development, but a third unannounced game has been scrapped.

Two different developer sources have also told Kotaku that the cancelled game may have been connected to the Japanese branch of Square Enix, with another dev stating it was a brand-new IP.

Earlier this week it was suggested that a Final Fantasy game may one day be created by a team outside of Japan.
