Eidos Montreal and Square Enix announced a Thief reboot is in the works for PlayStation 4, PC and other next-generation consoles including the already revealed PlayStation 4 and the yet-to-be-announced Xbox 720. Game Informer, who originally broke the story, will feature Thief as the cover story of their upcoming issue, with the cover being revealed Tuesday to confirm the game’s existence. The next-generation stealth steampunk game is expected to release in 2014.

Thief will star series main character Garrett. The expert thief will be stealing his way to riches in the updated Gothic, industrial setting of the City. However, social tension has spread over the City as the tyrant Baron has taken over control and a plague has depleted the inhabitants. Garrett will have to sneak his way through the game’s levels, with each offering multiple paths to choose from. Lockpicking will also play a role in the gameplay.

[adsense250itp]The Thief franchise is a critically-acclaimed series that began with the release of Thief: The Dark Project in 1998. A Thief game has not launched since 2004, when Ion Storm and Eidos released Thief: Deadly Shadows. Garrett has been the protagonist in each of the Thief games.

A new Thief game, previously known as Thief 4, has been rumored to be in the works for years. Thief 4 was officially announced in 2009 but that has evolved into a complete reboot of the series. It seems the latest iteration of the Thief franchise was looking to leverage the next-gen systems before being officially announced. According to the article, and Eidos, the latest edition of the game will retain its roots, including the qualities that made the previous three games so popular.

More information on Thief is expected to become available when the issue releases in April. As more news on Theif and Eidos breaks, stay tuned right here at Gaming Illustrated for the latest information.
