We might have just been introduced to the wonderful world of next-generation gaming, but the developers at Eidos Montreal still claim that their upcoming Thief reboot will look best on the PC.
At least, that’s according to art technical director Jean-Normand Bucci, who spoke to DSOGaming about the project in a new interview.
"The new consoles are very strong, very powerful. They allow for much more than what a console gamer is used to. The gap between PC and next gen has massively reduced for sure," Bucci said. "The new consoles and high-end PC offer better frame rate, higher resolution, and many new features along with DX11 support.”
Some developers are just more comfortable creating games on a PC, and Bucci seems to hit that point home when going into more detail about that particular version of this sneaky project.
“The PC version will support all the graphical features of the next-gen consoles with numerous improvements, including even better anti-aliasing, higher resolution shadows, and support for multi-monitor,” he continued. “Thief on PC will also be amongst the first batch of games that support AMD’s new Mantle API for high performance graphics."
There will be a difference between current and next-gen versions of the game. We know that. But the news that the PC Thief will reign supreme is a bit of a surprise, considering the power of the PS4 and Xbox One.
