Eidos Montreal, developer of the upcoming Thief reboot, has promised an optimised PC version of the game, adding that “it’s not a port.”


Speaking to Gamespot, producer Stephane Roy said, “Honestly, if you’re a PC gamer, you’re going to be in love with [this] version.

“They are going to have a PC version, not a port, all the PC options you can imagine are there,” he added.

The reason according to Roy, is that the PC version is developed by Nixxes Software, “This is because developer Nixxes Software is really, really good,” he said. As Gamespot adds, Nexxes, a Danish developer, is the studio behind the PC version of f Hitman Absolution and Deus Ex: Human Revolution, both of which received good PC versions, fans would agree.

In related news, Eidos Montreal said that it will be patching the game in March to bring support to AMD’s Mantle API.
