As if we needed any more information on the impending releases of next generation consoles in 2013, OXM (via CVG) is rumoring that development for Thief 4 has been shifted to PS4 and Xbox 720, and will release next year on the aforementioned consoles.
The game is being made by Eidos Montreal, a studio with four teams working on various projects: one for Deus Ex, one for Thief, a playtest team and a quality assurance team.
Thief 4 was actually announced in 2009, however since its reveal, the game’s website has been inactive, redirecting fans to a forum “for discussion”.
At this point, it makes no sense for Sony and Microsoft to try and hide the truth: PS4 and Xbox 720 will launch next year. The real question is, are you ready?
