Thief Reboot Planned To Sneak Onto Next-Gen Platforms In 2014

It started with what appeared to be 16 leaked screenshots from a presumed next-generation Thief title.

And before long, we learned that in fact, the next-gen Thief project will grace the cover of next month's Game Informer.

Eidos Montreal has been working "for years" to issue this reboot of the classic stealth series, and hero Garrett returns to "The City." This is a Gothic, industrial metropolis that vaguely reminds us of Dunwall in last year's Dishonored. And much like Dunwall, The City is ravaged by a terrible plague that creates plenty of social tension, and there's a political tyrant - the Baron - who rules with a brutal iron fist. Square Enix intends to release this Thief reboot for the PS4 and PC at some point next year, but the game is also planned for "other next-gen consoles."

This could be one of the very best games during the early years of the next generation. Those who remember Thief from yesteryear probably recall it with a great fondness...

I never played a Thief but was always interested in it, I'll certainly be keeping an eye on this. Some of my favorite things to do in open world games is sneak around people and open locks and cause general mischief.

I'm the same way. While I never actually got around to playing it, several of my friends did and loved the hell out it. I'll definitely be watching this for PS4.

I have played this game because it is one of the old pc games my dad left lying around, I am stilled saddened that such an amazing game still didn't make enough to keep looking glass studios around, Dark Project was good, but I wanna go on ebay some time and acquire the others to play them, would be nice if the older ones were all released as a multi pack for pc or consoles, the ending to this game left me a bit freaked out

I bet all of you Dishonored fans are looking foward to this. Im pretty happy that its getting a reboot. Some games deserve a chance to re-shine in todays gaming world. Shame a certain company doesn't realize this..

I've been waiting for 'Thief' news for a while, and assuming it arrives on schedule, it will definitely be a strong argument for me to adopt the PlayStation 4 early.

I most definitely remember Thief with great fondness, I even clearly remember the sound of the bow in that game like it was yesterday.
Only problem is that Dishonoured reminded me so much of Thief that it has taken some of the punch out of this news. And I like the Dishonoured setting better.

But it will be great fun to see Thief return.

Never played any Thief game but I always heard that it's one of the best steath game of all time.

Though I got a question, for those who played Thief before, do you think Dishonored is anything like it?

Dishonoured has a *lot* of Thief in it.
