The game will just be called Thief and is being developed by Deus Ex: Human Revolution developer Eidos Montreal. According to early reports on Thief, it will be released sometime next year for the PS4, PC, and “other next generation consoles” (meaning the next Microsoft console).
Game Informer will have a full reveal of Thief in their upcoming April issue. For now all we know about the game is Garrett will be returning as the main protagonist.
