Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have set an official release date for the next iteration in the Thief franchise. Thief tells the story of Master Thief Garrett as he becomes increasingly entangled in a conflict between Barron Northcrest and the oppressed masses led by Orion. Both factions believe in their own causes and are willing to go to any length to achieve their goals.
Barron Northcrest is a man who believes in the fires of industry and progress. “This city will not die with the old and the poor holding it back. The time has come for a new future.” Orion is the voice of the people who wants a return to the old ways. “No more will our homes be taken and our families starved. This City belongs to the people. We must seize it back.”
Garrett is caught in the middle of this growing divide that threatens to tear the city apart. There is a revolution coming and Garrett must walk a fine line that separates politics, the people and his own beliefs. Thief launches early next year on February 25th, 2014 in North America and February 28th, 2014 in Europe. Platforms include PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
