“You are going to have a PC version, not a port.”
Eidos Montreal says that the PC version of the upcoming stealth action adventure reboot for the Thief franchise will not just be a port of the console versions of the game, and says that it will be an excellent game on its own merits.
“Honestly, if you’re a PC gamer, you’re going to be in love with [this] version,” Eidos Montreal producer Stephane Roy told GameSpot, while also crediting developer Nixxes Software (also worked on Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s and Hitman: Absolution’s PC version and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition), calling them “really, really good.”
“They are going to have a PC version, not a port,” Roy continued. “The PC version looks amazing also. The PC version is very solid.
“All the PC options you can imagine are there,” Roy concluded.
