We determine the θ dependence of the deconfinement temperature of SU(3) pure gauge theory, finding that it decreases in the presence of a topological θ term. We do that by performing lattice simulations at imaginary θ, then exploiting analytic continuation. We also give an estimate of such dependence in the limit of a large number of colors N and compare it with our numerical results.
