Thief 4, originally announced for next-generation consoles and PC, will also be released on PS3 and Xbox 360, Eidos Montreal has announced.

"Since Thief's announcement for a 2014 release on high end PC and next-gen platforms, we've received a huge number of questions from community members wondering if the Thief experience would ever be available for their current generation consoles," wrote Eidos Montreal community manager Adam Badke.

"With full details of the new platforms still emerging, it's understandable that some of our fans are cautious to plunge feet first into the awesomely hot but unchartered waters of the next generation."

"Yep, it's official! Thief is now confirmed for PS3 and Xbox 360 - in addition to PC, PS4 and Xbox One! " continued Badke. "And, as importantly, the game will ship for ALL platforms simultaneously."

According to the blog post, Thief's "core gameplay experience will be the same across all platforms."

Thief will be released for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2014.

Given Thief wasn't the most next-gen game we've ever seen, news of its current-gen release isn't the greatest of surprises.
