There's not much on it yet, but there's some images and it's supposed to come out on 2014.

It looks a lot like Dishonored, visually, even if in the gameplay they're trying to take it a different direction

What I was thinking. And both games have a theme on sneaking around.

But Dishonored itself cribbed from the original Thief games.

Ya, the article Hiryu posted talks about that, they also addressed how Thief will be different. One of the designers had this to say:

From the Article Hiryu Posted wrote:“We played Dishonored. We had fun playing it, but at the same time, when we were playing it we realised it was a very different type of game, even though the inspiration and the source is the same. In terms of game mechanics, they have a very strong arcade feeling over their magics. They’re very magically inspired – our direction is more mystical, more immersive, more realistic feel.…Thief isn’t about revenge. It’s not about killing people. It’s about stealing, and being places you shouldn’t be. That’s what made Thief stand out in the old days. It was about everything else but killing.”

I'm still very skeptical about this game... From what I've read so far, it seems like a far more casual Thief game, which is a shame because I loved Dark Shadows for its difficulty
