Fourth Thief game announced for PC and PS4

New entry in stealth series to come out on next generation of hardware in 2014

Square Enix is resurrecting the Thief property with a new instalment next year.

Developed by Eidos-Montréal, the studio behind 2011’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the game has been confirmed for PC and PlayStation 4, as well as other next generation consoles.

The new game, currently named Thief, is positioned as a reinvention of the franchise, which has lain dormant with the release of Thief: Deadly Shadows in 2004.

The new game marks the return of master thief Garett in a first person adventure that allows players to take full control and choose their own path through the game’s levels, as well as how they approach and overcome each challenge.

Eidos-Montréal general manager, Stephane D’Astous, said the goal for the studio is to deliver the fantasy of being a master thief.

"We’re handling a precious gemstone with Thief,” he said.

“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.”

The game is slated for release in 2014 for PC and PlayStation 4, though Square Enix adds that it is also planned for other next generation consoles, which is likely Microsoft’s successor console once it is formally announced.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
