The fourth game in the Thief series, simply titled Thief, is coming next year for PC, PlayStation 4 and "next-gen consoles," (aka whatever Microsoft calls the next Xbox) the latest Game Informer confirms.
Rumors of a new Thief game from Eidos Montreal have circulated for years, but as goes the realm of the AAA video game, nothing’s official until it finally appears on the cover of Game Informer.
I’m told Square Enix and Eidos Interactive were close to revealing Thief years ago, but it was a bit rough, and chose to spend a few more years developing the game, allowing Deus Ex: Human Revolution to remain in the spotlight. Given the huge response to Deus Ex, it seems like the right move now.
I’m now acutely reminded that I’ve never played Thief: Deadly Shadows because of my reaction to Deus Ex: Invisible War, despite the overwhelming praise I’ve heard for a horror section known as The Cradle. Maybe now is the time to fix that mistake...
