Thief Reboot Announced
The stealth-based series Thief is getting a reboot by Eidos-Montreal, the studio responsible for Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
The Thief games star Garrett, a master thief who is also a part of an enigmatic group known as the Keepers. While Garrett would love nothing more than to just live his life as a simple thief, the City has a tendency to attract the attention of dangerous people and entities, with Garrett having a tendency to be caught in them idle of conflicts. However, while Garrett may not be the most physically fit of fighters, he does have several nifty tools and his natural cunning at his disposal.
The reboot will once again star Garrett as the protagonist, though there is no information yet on how the reboot will affect his characterization and backstory. Eidos-Montreal has also stated that this reinvention will retain the core features of the previous games that fans love, including the open nature of every level that encourages players to be creative on how to complete each level.
The game will be released sometime in 2014 for the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC; there are also plans to release this game for other consoles, though those consoles have yet to be revealed.
