Crytek UK in talks for a new TimeSplitters game

No promises, but Crytek UK may very well be getting ready to make a brand new TimeSplitters game. The studio -- composed primarily of former Free Radical guys -- is in talks with publishers over the possibility of releasing a new game. If there's enough interest, it looks like a thing that could happen.

"We're talking to publishers at the moment about whether that's a viable route or not," says managing director Karl Hilton. "There hasn't been a TimeSplitters game for quite a while. Obviously TimeSplitters is a FPS with a strong multiplayer element. The question is, is that the way to go with another one, or should it go down a different route, or should we be developing a new IP altogether?

"It's down to us talking to publishers about what their interest is and where they see it going. If they're keen for a TS game, then we'd be happy to do one. If they'd like us to develop something new then we'd do that."

According to Hilton, there's been some positive buzz about a new TimeSplitters, with publishers viewing the game as "a really successful product or as a product that was almost successful but could have done better." So, this might very well happen, and I'm sure everyone will be excited (except the hardcore "fans" who will moan about every little thing).
