After 9 years since Thief: Deadly Shadows Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have unveiled the fourth game in the Thief series, simply called Thief, ahead of a release for PC and PlayStation 4 and possibly the next gen Microsoft console sometime in 2014.
Game Informer has teased us that the title will see the return of series protagonist Garrett and the Gothic Victorian setting of The City. Eidos Montreal seems to be branding the new title as a full series reboot rather than a sequel to existing games, though.
"We wanted as a core team to keep the main pillar of what is a Thief game," one developer says in the short trailer posted by Game Informer. "Garret is not someone that's renowned in the world ofThief, so most NPCs will not talk to him, and if they will see him they'll be quite afraid of him, because he's a scary gentleman," says another.
Thief 4 has been in development since at least May of 2009, when Eidos Montreal first publicly mentioned the title on its webpage. "Right now, we are focused on recruiting the very best talent to join the core team at the studio and help us make what we believe will be one of the most exciting games on the market," Eidos Montréal General Manager Stéphane D'Astous wrote at the time.
