Square Enix and Eidos Montreal, the studio behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution, has announced THIEF for high-end PC’s and next generation consoles. THIEF is the reinvention of a franchise that could claim credit for the modern day stealth genre.
Players will take control of Garrett, the master thief in a first-person adventure that allows players to take full control, with freedom to choose their path through the game’s levels and how they approach and overcome each challenge.
“We’re handling a precious gemstone with THIEF. 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,” said Stephane D’Astous, General Manager, Eidos Montréal. “Our goal is to deliver the fantasy of being Garrett, the master thief, and we’re building this game around that core experience.”
