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.”

Prior to the announcement, screenshots of the game appeared on Russian website GamesManiac.

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.

    Sweet! Can’t wait! :D

    And even though they say it’s a reboot and there’s no 4 in there, I hope it’s still in continuity with Thief 1-3. Too much good story there to just abandon. :(

    It’s about fucking time.

    Those screens are looking good. SqEidos are doing their past franchises some serious justice so far. Outside of a couple of issues I loved Human Revolution, still in the air on Absolution vs Blood Money, and Tomb Raider is proving to be rather enjoyable right now (never thought I’d ever say those words).

    Building up a solid track record so I’m going to remain a bit optimistic that this one will continue the trend.

  • Aw yeah! I love some good stealth. Will get this for my PS4.

    I’m glad it’s a reboot and honestly hope for a new story or a retelling of some sort, because I don’t have the previous entries in the series down.

    Love the art direction!

    The PS4 and next gen in general are getting quite a good library already. Seems like the PC architecture is making things a tad easier

      Agreed, which is excellent; consoles really needed to make this type of evolution in order to keep up with the outside changes (mobile/tablet, change in consumer habits/taste, and even culture changes regarding technology as a whole).

    Fuck Yesss!!!!!!

    I am looking forward to that game on the PS4. Been a big fan of the series.
