THIEF will NOT Launch with Mantle Support, Coming in March via a Patch

THIEF will be the second game that will support AMD’s new API, Mantle. And while Nixxes Software and Square Enix claimed that the game would support Mantle from the get-go, EIDOS Montreal’s ‘Valerie Bourdeau’ revealed that this won’t be the case after all.

As Bourdeau said, the development team is busy working on a patch to support AMD’s Mantle and TrueAudio technologies that is scheduled for March.

“We’re confident this patch will ensure the best and fastest THIEF experience for AMD Radeon customers. We’re sorry we couldn’t bring this to you sooner – although we will use this time to bring you the very best experience possible and will let you know when the patch is ready.”

THIEF is currently planned for release this week!
