Crytek UK Still Debating The Return Of TimeSplitters
Okay, so Crysis 2 has been out for a while. It turned out really well, too.
So how's about that new TimeSplitters, Crytek? Remember how you saved Free Radical, the TS developers, after Haze bombed in 2008? They're part of your team now, which is why you're officially called "Crytek UK." So...gonna listen to the fans on this one?
It seems they might. In speaking to NowGamer, company co-founder Avni Yerli says they're still thinking about such a project. Unfortunately, there are no concrete plans as of yet, but Crytek isn't about to abandon TimeSplitters entirely. Said Yerli:
"From our perspective we always had a lot of fun playing Timesplitters - Timesplitters 2 was amazing fun. Crytek and Crytek UK are interested in the IP; we are thinking about it but we’re trying to decide what we could do best with the IP, where we could bring it. There are no concrete plans yet."
Damn straight they were fun. Also, Yerli admits he hadn't thought about the possibility of remaking the first few franchise entries in high definition, but he still thinks it's a "good idea." Personally, I always loved these games; they were lighthearted and enjoyable, and although they weren't much different than other FPSs, they did have their own distinct charm.
