Skybound Entertainment and Rival Games have partnered to bring Robert Kirkman’s comic book series Thief of Thieves into the gaming world with a new interactive game based off of the comic. The game will be demoed for the first time ever on Steam at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2017 and will be available on Steam in early 2018.
Thief of Thieves will follow Celia, the protégé of Kirkman’s comic book protagonist Conrad Paulson, the legendary thief known as Redmond, during her apprentice years. While the comic book series introduces Celia in a flashback, the game will detail how Celia became an accomplished thief of her own.
President of Skybound Interactive Dan Murray said:
“We’re excited to broaden Robert Kirkman’s world with a mix of characters from the original plot and fresh faces. Rival Games has created an excellent expansion of the original storyline and we can’t wait to share it with our fans.”
Jukka Laakso, the CEO of Rival Games, added:
“Comics have always been close to our heart here at the studio, and Thief of Thievesobviously resonates with the team as a crime story. Our cooperation with Skybound has been fruitful from the start, and we’ve been enjoying some great input from their creative team.”
In order to celebrate this announcement, Skybound Entertainment released a gameplay teaser trailer for Thief of Thieves that can be viewed below. Enjoy!
