Considering the age of the series (the first title, Thief: The Dark Project, released in 1998), I thought it was time to do a screenshot comparison to showcase the giant leaps in visual fidelity that the series has seen since its initial release many moons ago.
Below, you will find screenshots ordered from left to right, with the oldest ones on the left. The order is as follows: Thief: The Dark Project and Thief II: The Metal Age on the first rows, and Thief: Deadly Shadows and Thief 4 beneath.
Note that Thief: Deadly Shadows and the newest Thief title do not have numbers in their titles, but I referred to them as 3 and 4 respectively for continuity.
Thief 4 (known only as Thief) has been announced for next gen consoles and PC, and is to be released in 2014.
Undoubtedly, the game will be at E3, and OXCGN will bring you up to speed on what Eidos Montreal is doing on this long-awaited installment.
Until then, are you excited for the next installment of Thief?
Or do you think it will have a hard time fitting in?
