Thief Developer Diary Discusses Story and Narrative

Posted on June 28, 2013 AT 05:13am

Eidos Montreal has released a new developer diary for Thief, which explains the reboot’s narrative and offers up some reasons for why Garrett acts the way he does.

Narrative director Steven Gallagher explains that Garrett grew up in an orphanage and has no idea where he came from, so he steals to exert some sort of freedom from his past.

Thief is due to release in 2014 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
