The lights are on
We knew that Eidos Montréal's Thief was coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Today, we've got some interesting news for those hoping to play on current consoles.
According to a post on the official Thief community blog, the game play experience will be the same, regardless of which system you'll be playing on. Additionally, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions will launch on the same day as the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One editions.
For more information on Thief, be sure to check out our coverage from the April 2013 issue.

This is beyond worrying. They're not only releasing the game on 5 platforms, but all on launch day? Are they way ahead of schedule? I sure hope everything turns out well. I really love this series.
already made the decision of anything that comes out on both the PS3 and PS4. I will just wait until I get a PS4 to get the most out of my 60 bucks.
I have never played a Thief game but am very interested in this title. I hope to see more from it because I haven't seen any gameplay from the game yet and it would help solidify my decision on getting the game.
The E3 gameplay didn't look next-gen. It looked graphically similar to last year's Dishonored.
Pistol Bob is pleased.
Great news for those who won't be able to get the next-gen consoles right away.
that's good for people not upgrading to next gen
Is this official or just a hint?
Dang, that's awesome. Thief being on PS3 just killed another reason for me to get next-gen on launch day.
It's cool of them to bring the game to current gen since not everyone will be able to get their hands on an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 on day one (I know I couldn't get my PS3 when it first came out). Still, I'm worried that because they have to make it work on current gen consoles that it won't be as awesome as it could be on next-gen.
... ppl thought they weren't?
Whoo!That is a relief seeing as I am not upgrading my console immediately.
Yes! I missed this franchise, the original was so great.
Awesome news guys.
