Thief coming to Xbox 720?

Eidos Montreal dev's LinkedIn profile claims next-generation stealth game also in development for Microsoft's upcoming platform.

Eidos Montreal's upcoming stealth game Thief is in development for Microsoft's recently confirmed next-generation platform. That's according to the LinkedIn profile page of an Eidos Montreal developer spotted by Videogamer, who lists the game as in development for "PS4/Xbox 720/PC."

Publisher Square Enix has only confirmed Thief for PC, PlayStation 4, and "other next-generation platforms." The company declined to comment when approached.

If Thief is in fact in development for Microsoft's Xbox 720, it may not be long until that information is confirmed. Microsoft announced last night that it will hold a reveal event on May 21 to introduce its new console and usher in a "new generation of games, TV, and entertainment."

Thief will launch in 2014. Eidos Montreal has no plans for a competitive multiplayer component for the game.

Dah... They said it at the end of the trailer. This is as lame as an article can get.

Well that's hardly any news. BUt I am afraid tief wont be very good compared to the old ones. IT looks to be dumbed down in the name of mass appeal with nice hand holding arrows and flashing stuff

I guess I won't be playing Thief again unless they make it backward compatible to the 360. I'm not going to spend the money on a new counsel unless my 360 takes a dump.

Just because it may be available for the "720" doesn't mean they'll show it May 21st.. But it'd be nice if they did....

I can find no mistakes in this article, therefore it must have been written by an imposter.

What have you done with Eddie?!?

@Navardo95 Part of me wants to ask what chirstmas is, but the other part of me doesn't think it's fair to rag on a typo...unless it's Eddie's 'cos he gets paid.

@Gallowhand It's a strong achievement for Eddie to write an article without errors, but perhaps too strong? Or even, Armstrong (i.e. using activity enhancing drugs :P)?

@Oozyrat It's going to be called the Windows 8 Process Console, or just Win8 PC for short.

@Oozyrat Honestly, I would prefer it be called the 720 opposed to just "Xbox". I mean, that's like a reboot every other iteration; that would be stupid. I highly doubt that it's going to be called it that, and I don't see how so many believe that it will.

@Oozyrat No official name yet, even though there's rumors it might be called XBox Infinity. We'll see.

@Hurvl @Gallowhand It kind of makes up for the fact that the article itself is face-palmingly pointless and / or obvious. There will be loads of these repeating now as we basically get all the multi-format games that were confirmed for PS4 being confirmed for 720.

@blackace @Oozyrat Some have called it Xbox Durango, but the Devil and some other stuff goes by many names.
