Crytek’s Cevat Yerli has revealed to VG247 that, although the studio is aware that many people want the series to return, it simply isn’t high enough to justify the project yet. But it is high enough to get the developer thinking about it.
"many people want the series to return, it simply isn’t high enough to justify the project" you serious? what more do people need to do
Nobody asked for a Crysis game on consoles, but that didn't stop them. They even took the time to redo Crysis 1. Why not remaster the Timesplitter games?
That was obviously a logic decision. They wanted to make more money on a later market do the ported in to consoles...
Like JRPGs these games just arent favored this gen unless its all gritty and generically dependent on war themes. Persobally, Id like to see this on VITA
Yeah i'd agree with that too. I love the Timesplitters series but not everyone does enough i guess for them to sell in large enough quantities. Jrpg are selling less and less now as well Stupid disagrees because you're apparently bashing the franchise
^ maybe because i prefer vita exclusivity. i just think that the vita would b a modest market for a modest shooter that has no intentions of being some AAA mega hype expensively budgeted blockbuster
I would love a new TimeSplitters game, and I think this is the BEST time to release it. Halo 4, Black Ops 2, and Crysis 3. What you waiting for, Crytek!?
How dare they say such a thing. Have they really asked? They should just send out a survey and see
The problem is, who would they send the survey out to? "Dear Timesplitters fans, Would you like a new Timesplitters game?" Even the gaming community as a whole would probably be be quite receptive to the idea (given that it's a well-loved franchise). The question isn't whether clued-up internet-visiting gamers want a new game but whether the people who only buy 4 or 5 games a year would be interested enough to buy into it. A game needs more than the support of Reddit and N4G to be a success, especially a game in a franchise known for its massive amount of additional content.
Facebook and Twitter would be a good place to ask. Social media has its uses.
if you announce it I bet interest rise 10 fold!
very true good sir :)
They really need to make this game
Timesplitters 4>>>>Homefront 2>>>>Crysis 3 Priorities Crytek doesnt have em.
I remember being really interested in it until they said it would be free to play, that killed it for me.
“That being said, it did indeed trigger a deeper evaluation of what we do with Timesplitters, and I can only say this for now; we might have some surprises coming soon.” An HD Collection, perhaps?
There is already a survey/petition on Facebook. It's currently at a strong 29,000 likes. The link for it is below. https://www.facebook.com/Ti...
I spent countless hours playing Timesplitters with my cousins they need to remaster the old ones and make 4 one of my favorite modes was virus !!!
There are LOTS of games being made and released without being in high demand from fans. This is no excuse. And if you're not going to do it, give the franchise to someone who will.
Sounds like they need to release a Timesplitters HD Collection first then.
Yep this is how I heard what he said. "I tested through my official blog to see how big the Timesplitters community is, and while the volume of responses was quite high, we feel it’s not high enough yet.” Meaning there isn't enough for a full blown new Timesplitters but then he follows it up with “That being said, it did indeed trigger a deeper evaluation of what we do with Timesplitters, and I can only say this for now; we might have some surprises coming soon.” That sounds just like the right thing to say before announcing a HD collection.
