The console version is in development at Curve and will be published by the firm.

The Swindle, which is in development for PC at Size Five Games, is a mixture of “platform, action and stealth” gameplay.

In it, players will break into buildings to hack the security systems in order to steal cash. The players mustthen try to reach the nearest exit as the alarms sound.

Each building and levels the players will be exploring are procedurally-generated, and the ability to upgrade the player’s thief with new skills and tools will be available after every job. This will allow the thief to take on bigger, more difficult jobs.

A release date is yet to be announced, but alongside the PC version, the game will launch on PlayStation 3, PS4, Wii U, Vita and Xbox One later this year.
