About three months ago we saw the first reveal of Thief, a reboot of the beloved stealth franchise that was scheduled to be released on next generation and PC platforms. That is no longer the case as Eidos Montreal has confirmed today that Thief will also be hitting the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
“Yep, it’s official! Thief is now confirmed for PS3 and Xbox 360 – in addition to PC, PS4 and Xbox One! And, as importantly, the game will ship for ALL platforms simultaneously,” says Community Manager Adam Badke.
It’s not that big of a surprise as the PS3 and Xbox 360 are very well established platforms with more than 100 million users combined. It’s disappointing to lose even more reasons for owning a PS4 and Xbox One, but the current-gen crossovers will slowly fade as the generation goes on. Thief is scheduled to be released sometime next year.
