Yes, another first-person shooter is in development. No, it isn’t another World War II simulator and it will most likely not suck. If you’ve played any of the games in the TimeSplitters series before, you’re probably jumping up and down with pure excitement after reading that headline.
This piece of information comes from the August issue of OPM UK and was posted on the official PlayStation forums:
To this day, I consider TimeSplitters 2 to be one of, if not the best, multiplayer game ever created. It sounds like the next installment will feature all of the things that made TS2 such a fun experience to be had – truly crazy characters, a good sense of humor, and of course, monkeys.
Oh, and if you’re starting to contemplate how you can come up with $600 to buy a PlayStation 3 in anticipation for TimeSplitters 4, don’t sweat it too much. Both TimeSplitters 2 & 3 were available on PlayStation 2, Gamecube, and Xbox. And if EA decides to play the role of publisher again, there’s a good chance that we’ll see a multiplatform release.
