Why Thief 4 Needs to be a Reboot

"Why does Thief Mk2 need to be a reboot? Because industrialisation, bitches.

Despite the previous games’ themes of magic vs. technology, there hasn’t been any room for technology vs. artisans."

Mariel Hurd talks about why the classic series will be better served by a reboot than a new instalment.

"Reboots revitalise stories in a way revivals can’t. Rather than adding another event to the already-teetering pile of Shit This Guy Has Gone Through, they take things back to basics and see where you can go from there. A reboot is the chance to explore the unseen corners of a setting without all the baggage which came before." (PC, PS4, Thief, Xbox One)
