These days, everything amazing-but-dated needs an equally amazing reboot. While publisher Square Enix has revived both of its Tomb Raider and Hitman franchises fairly recently, it's all ready to reboot another older-school title for next generation console awesomeness. That's right, taffers, Thief is back in all of it's arrows-to-the-dome glory and it is confirmed for E3.
The first-person steampunk stealth-'em-up looks a bit like it's second installment, but darker and more next-gen-ier. The new game will probably be familiar to younger Dishonored fans because that franchise practically owes its own existence to the original. From what we've seen, the new Thief will have pick-pocketing aplenty, that old familiar skull-cracking blackjack, and an endless quiver of arrow-shooting. While Garrett will be the face of this reboot, we're not sure if it's the same Garrett, or someone taking his mantle. Pure reboot or not, it's definitely going to be on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
