Thief, a reboot for the series by Eidos Montreal that will be out next year for PC, PS4, and whatever the next Xbox is called.
The game is no longer called Thief 4.
The April issue of Game Informer has more details on the new stealth game, which looks a whole lot like Dishonored. Not that that’s a bad thing.
The next-gen sequel is said to have been in the making for almost five years, and was kept away from the public eye since its original May 2009 announcement.
The main cause of the extended development stretch, the developer told Game Informer, is that in order to avoid “million dollar disasters”, the Thief team was kept small and within the concept stage of development until a clear idea emerged.
Given free rein to reinvent the Thief series, the Eidos Montreal team experimented with a brand new character and even experimented with a third-person title with environment clambering, similar to gameplay in Assassin’s Creed.
