Next Thief Game Unveiled

Next Thief Game Unveiled

The next installment in the genre-defining crime simulator, Thief, was revealed today for PC and the next generation of consoles. Eidos-Montréal, the studio from Square Enix that developed the critically-acclaimed award-winning Deus Ex series. Thief, which is the fourth entry in the self-titled series, will be coming out next year.

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.

In The City, the poor despair while the rich prosper and dwell in their power. The City is filling with sickness and starvation; change has to come soon. Enter Garret, the master thief in all of The City. Thief hands over complete control over to the player in this open-world first-person adventure. Each level is carefully crafted with many secrets and choices, allowing players to have many different path to take.

“We’re handling a precious gemstone with Thief. Fans remember the original games very fondly and we want to preserve that essence – which we have excellent experience of doing at Eidos-Montréal – whilst also introducing Thief to a brand new, next-generation, audience. Our goal is to deliver the fantasy of being Garrett, the master thief, and we’re building this game around that core experience.” - Stephane D’Astous, General Manager of Eidos-Montréal
