'Thief' outed as next-gen title for 2014

The next Game Informer cover has revealed Square Enix's reboot "Thief" as a next-gen title due out in 2014.

The magazine describes the game as follows:
“Series hero Garrett returns to the Gothic, industrial metropolis known simply as the City to steal any and everything that will make him richer.

“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.”
Eidos Montreal GM Stephane D'Astous stated in a press release;
“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.

“Our goal is to deliver the fantasy of being Garrett, THE master thief, and we’re building this game around that core experience."
The games industry has long been on the trail of what was thought to be Thief 4 for quite some time now.
