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...
