Anybody who played Thief will be happy to hear that the series is up for a complete reboot in 2014. The title of this exciting new game is simply “Thief”, which would suggest its return to basics. Developer Eidos Montreal has huge boots to fill as the original Thief was, and still is, one of the best games ever made. Details are still too scarce to find, but it seems that the game is set in an open-end world, and game-play is non-linear, which is fantastic news since linear progression was one of the main objections to the original. This is definitely one of the most awaited video games of 2014! Thief will be available on both the PS4 and Xbox One.
