Thief is infiltrating current-generation consoles alongside its launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC, Senior Producer Stéphane Roy announced in an Eidos Montreal video. It will launch on Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One and PC simultaneously, and all versions are under development from the same team.
The core gameplay of Thief on current-gen and next-gen consoles will be the same, but the two versions will have slight differences.
"No doubt we have to change it a little bit – the next-gen is just so powerful – so we have to adapt our strategy of how to make it happen on current-gen," Roy said.
There is a rising tide of fear in The City. Hatred saturates every stone and whilst the rich prosper, the less fortunate face misery and repression. Ravaged with sickness and famine, they wait for something to change.
Into this shadowy world steps Garrett, the master thief, in a first-person adventure featuring intelligent design 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.
