The first three installments were developed between Eidos Montreal, and Ion Storm with either Eidos Interactive or Square Enix publishing. The newest title known so-far as just ‘Thief 4′ is a next-gen title that is a couple years in the making – developed by Eidos Montreal (published by Square Enix) this title will be covered extensively in issue 240 of next month’s Game Informer (print edition due out in 2 weeks).

Original GI Post:

Eidos Montreal has been working for years to reboot the classic stealth series Thief, and the fruits of its labor will finally be revealed in issue 240 of Game Informer Magazine.

Our April cover story is a world-exclusive look at this next-generation stealth title. 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.

Square Enix plans to release Thief for PS4, PC, and other next-gen platforms sometime in 2014. Check out our coverage trailer for a taste of all the content you can look forward to absorbing over the next month.

Also in the issue, we take a look at Sony’s PlayStation 4 as well as Bungie’s follow up to Halo, a new sci-fi series called Destiny. We also research the harsh realities of mobile development and learn about the challenges small teams face when making a game.

We poke fun at the entire industry with our annual Game Infarcer feature, and then take an exclusive look at Trion Worlds and Syfy’s MMO/TV show experiment Defiance.

      I wont get my hopes up with the HD remake if i were you, uauslly it is aimed at fans and no one else. I have purchased a few HD games and all have dispointed me so far. Guess my expectations are too high.

      What’s funny is that they openly say if anheotr FF outsells VII then we’ll make a remake, but the company isn’t the same company from the mid-90s. We can all see that. One need only look at all the hits they put out in the SNES and PS1 days and compare those to today. We barely get anything today, and what we do get pales in comparison. So asking for anheotr FF to outsell VII is ridiculous. I don’t even want them to work on a real remake of VII because I’m so scared what they’d end up doing to it. At this point in time Square-Enix needs to rethink their strategy because clearly it’s not working. Their North American subsidiary is what’s keeping them afloat, which is insane if you think about it. I was looking through their financials the other day and virtually all of their money is coming from Eidos. Had they not made that purchase they would be in serious financial trouble right now.I really miss the days of the classic Squaresoft and Enix. We used to get so many awesome games that we’ve never heard of again. Where’s a new Chrono, how about anheotr Brave Fencer Musashi, Einhe4nder, Vagrant Story, the list goes on and on. What’s worse, when they do put out a new original IP they don’t market it at all. There have been some really awesome games released on the DS and PSP that the world all but ignored because they had no idea these games were even released, and that’s just sad.So at the end of the day I’ve almost given up on Square-Enix. They’ll always hold a special place in my heart, but their glory days are long gone. They’re now saying they might stop internal development completely except for smaller projects and outsource their larger projects so they can release more of them in less time. That’s how sad the situation has become for the once leader of the RPG genre.

    Never played DX, but I loekod at the Wikipedia on it and it sounds fun. The whole branching paths mechanic sounds neat, and any game where Texas secedes from the union and the Illuminati is involved is promises to be a pretty crazy ride lol. I might look into it.

    Honestly, after SE’s debut console game this geioeatnrn (FFXIII) and their balls-to-the-wall-amazing CGI’s I’m not surprised what their new engine can achieve. Right now FrostBite 2 is the only major player, more awesome engines = more awesome games.VN:F [1.9.17_1161](from 0 votes)

    Lani I have gotten a few emalis from him and yes he is telling me that he is doing me a favor by taking my content and that I may get 20 new visits to my site each month because of his splog. He is very arrogant and does not understand the meaning of the word plagiarism He told me that my friends want their content out there. None that I have talked to do. On top of it he does have a real estate license and is a member of NAR. I would say that his behavior does not match are standards that are as you know oh so high. He is misusing the R on one of his sites. If I have time later I might get him.
