Square Enix and Eidos Montréal, the same studio that produced the critically acclaimed Deus Ex: Human Revolution, unveiled today that THIEF will be released for high-end PC’s and next generation consoles. THIEF is, for those who didn’t know, the reinvention of Thief 4, which has been in development for a number of years.
The setting of THIEF shows a city in the grips of fear. While the rich live in luxury, the unfortunate face misery and oppression. Ravaged by plague and famine, they wait for something to change.
Into this shadowy world steps Garrett, the master thief. The player will guide Garrett through this first-person adventure heavily entrenched in an intelligent design that allows players to take full control, with the freedom to choose their path through the game’s levels and how they approach and overcome each challenge.

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,” said Stephane D’Astous, General Manager, Eidos Montréal. “Our goal is to deliver the fantasy of being Garrett, the master thief, and we’re building this game around that core experience.”[/quote]
