Of all of the video game franchises we’ve been seeing get a bit of a makeover or reboot, the very popular Thief series is one that would have been near the top of many gamers’ wishlist. But for whatever reasons, we never saw a new game in the franchise released on this generation of gaming consoles.
But never fear, publisher Square Enix and developer Eidos Montreal have announced that a new Thief is on the way…in more ways than one. The game will not only be a new entry in the series, but will also be a reinvention of the franchise.
Time has moved on. Power has shifted. New greed replaces the old. But to remain free in the city of chains – that is still the greatest prize.
First I stole to survive…then I survived to steal.
I am one man; I hear your secrets, see your hidden truths.
I am the shadows, the dark and deadly, the velvet night. You will not see me coming.
I am Garrett…What’s yours is mine.
There is a rising tide of fear in The City. Hatred saturates every stone and whilst the rich prosper, the less fortunate face misery and repression. Ravaged with sickness and famine, they wait for something to change.
Into this shadowy world steps Garrett, THE master thief…
The game is being developed for high-end PCs and for the next generation of gaming consoles—Sony’s PlayStation 4, and Microsoft’s still-unannounced Xbox 360 successor.
