Goth is out, kids. All that black make-up and sulking. Like, it's so 1998, you know? That's the message from Eidos Montreal where a long awaited new entry in the Thief series is in development. Just don't expect to see hero Garrett looking like he's off to a Sisters of Mercy concert this time.

"In the beginning, in the conception, we had carte blanche to completely restart a new design of Garrett," game director Nicolas Cantin told Game Informer. "We wanted to keep the main DNA of who Garrett was. We didn't want to change that much because it was kind of working already."

"We wanted to bring him more for the modern audience of today's console market," added narrative designer Steve Gallanger. "He's now in the game doing more action moves and that's how we wanted the costume and the suit to reflect that. In the beginning he was kind of more gothic; we turned down all the things that feel more gothic. For example: black nails and things like that - we don't have that any more. We want to make him a little bit more mainstream on that."

While this news may send old school Thief fans stamping to their bedrooms to write angry poetry on their school bag in purple marker pen, it definitely shows that Eidos is willing to tweak and twist the critically acclaimed title in order to make it work for a modern audience.

Thief is currently slated for a 2014 release on PC and next generation consoles.
