p The future of the Thief franchise has been in question since its 2014 reboot, but we now know that it's set to come back stronger than ever.
Since the release of the Thief reboot in 2014, we haven’t heard too much about the future of the franchise.
However, there’s been an update on the status of its film adaptation — and with it, confirmation that a new game is in the works.
The movie is being developed by Straight Up Films, the production company behind films like Wally Pfister’s directorial debut Transcendence, and the 2016 Western Jane Got a Gun.
The Thief adaptation is listed on the company’s website among its various projects that are currently in production.
Straight Up Films describes Thief as “one of the greatest games ever created” and suggests that the property is “poised to be the next great multiplatform franchise.” The blurb goes on to state that this multimedia success will be achieved by the release of the movie and an upcoming video game sequel “in step” with one another.
