In a recent interview with Strategy Informer, Eidos Montreal producer Stephane Roy has given us a little insight into what to expect from the PC version of the Thief reboot – which is currently in development – suggesting that it is getting special attention from the development team.
“No doubt on our side the PC version is extremely important,” Roy said. “Just playing Thief with a keyboard and mouse it’s different so we must make sure we support that well. For making the PC version we think like a PC gamer, for consoles it’s a different type of beast. It’s one of our goals to make sure that the PC version isn’t just a copy of the console version.”
This shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, considering that Square Enix’s last big multi-platform title, Tomb Raider, had a particularly good PC release.
Thief is due out in 2014, and is currently confirmed for PC, PlayStation 4, and “other next generation consoles.”
