Rumor: Thief 4 Getting Pushed to Next Gen Consoles
Rumor has it that Thief 4 won’t be making it out on the current generation of hardware, and will instead be pushed back to the next Xbox and Playstation iterations.
The news comes from OXM UK, which claimed in its latest Gossip section that Ubisoft Montreal’s game had been pushed back to the next version of the Xbox, and by extension, the rest of the new hardware expected to get announced next year.
Square Enix hasn’t commented on the report, but job listings for Eidos Montreal state that it’s hiring for a “next-generation action game” that will include elements like player choice and stealth. OXM thinks that game is Thief 4, and not some unannounced Deus Ex title building on the studio’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
