Ex-TimeSplitters Crew Working On Crysis 2 Multiplayer
Okay, so they're not working on TimeSplitters 4. But at least they're a hard-working, dedicated group that should make the multiplayer mode for Crysis 2 shine brightly.
As some of you know, Free Radical, the studio responsible for the likes of the acclaimed TimeSplitters series and the ill-fated Haze, was forced to close up shop towards the end of 2008. However, Crytek swooped in and saved them and they're now known as "Crytek UK." According to what studio CEO Cevat Yerli told VG247, that very same group is toiling away on the multiplayer aspect of Crysis 2, and he says their new team members display "more focus and dedication" than he's ever seen. Said Yerli:
"On multiplayer, we brought in a whole studio, Crytek UK to work on the multiplayer. That is all they are doing, with a full team on it, and they are blasting forward at full speed with more focus and dedication than I’ve ever had before at Crytek. Because of their multiplayer experience, their job is just to make the most of this experience. So that is all they have to do."
Well, we do have to admit that TimeSplitters online was always fun, and you might still find some die-hard fans who will claim that TimeSplitters 2 online was more fun than Halo online. Those who loved TS are likely hoping for a new sequel someday but for now, they'll have to be happy with ex-Free Radical's work on the Crysis 2 multiplayer. ...we're all just trying to forget about Haze.
