A new iteration of Thief, which has apparently been years in the making at Eidos Montreal, has been revealed as the cover of Game Informer’s April issue.
According to a post on the Game Informer website, the game, simply referred to as Thief, will be a next-generation effort as Square Enix intends to release it for “PS4, PC, and other next-gen platforms sometime in 2014″.
“Series hero Garrett returns to the Gothic, industrial metropolis known simply as the City to steal any and everything that will make him richer,” the post says.
“Unfortunately, the City is broiling with social tension as it is ravaged by a plague and lorded over by a political tyrant known as the Baron.
“In order to survive his adventures, Garrett will have to pay attention to his environment and make use of the may possible paths through each of the game’s levels.”
A reel released last year by compositing artist Eric Wong appeared to be a trailer for the game. Although since removed, you can check out the brief clip, here.
