The reasoning behind third-person being implemented into 'Thief'

Traditionally, Thief is a first-person game, however; in the upcoming reboot of the series the director of the game revealed the reasoning behind why we will have certain third-person moments in the game.

I have no hope for this game being good.

As soon as I learnt that the maps/areas of the game are small, I'm no longer interested.

Yet ANOTHER PC game butchered to suit bloody consoles.

Wasn't Thief: Deadly Shadows on the original Xbox?

Yet consoles aren't the reason it was butchered. Consoles have supported vastly superior maps to this. TES and GTAV for example. This is a half assed decision by the devs to get out of more work.

It's more than likely a decision made to meet deadlines.

Dynasty2021 ... You make me laugh ... you try to come across all "PC elitist" but you are just another attention seeking nobody. I am sure you live in a sprawling mansion, drive the best car money can buy and are surrounded by sex hungry playboy bunnies ..... you have it all .. including your dogs bo****ks gaming rig !! ha .. bet the bunnies are wet when they see your setup !!
Grow up ... did it ever occur to you that owning a console over pc is a "choice" . Money is not a factor for me but I choose to buy what I want.
Im sure people would laugh at your fashion sense / house / stained pants or whatever !!

So its only few parts with 3rd view?? Not intresting!!

The fewer the better.

Stealth games are vastly improved in first person as you don't get to see around corners. You have to actively peek and listen to your surrounding to know whether it's safe.
