Time To Split: The Life and Death of the Free Radicals (History of TimeSplitters and Free Radical)

With the launch of Homefront: The Revolution, developed by the remnants of Free Radical, the question on a lot of people's minds is "Where is TimeSplitters?". This arcticle is an in-depth look into the TimeSplitters series as well as it's developers Free Radical, who later went on to become Dambuster studios, looking into where it all went wrong and also diving into their secret projects.

The story is too old to be commented.

Now this is a great article, this is what n4g use to be. Good articles with tons of information unlike the n4g of today that's all about fanboy wars mainly ps4 fanboys

Thank-you for the kind words!

Amen to that, Homefront is sadly the closest weird going to get, looking at the facts. I hope I am wrong though.

It's a saddening affair, Doom reminded me why these arcade shooters are more enjoyable in my eyes for FPS, multiplayer mayhem in TimeSplitters 1, 2 & 3 were godly. Many a evening in my childhood were spent on TimeSplitters just unlocking all the characters for killing in capture the bag!

HD remaster is all we need, screw online it's all about that local!

Great article, l just wish these guys and gals could make a new Timesplitters game instead of the ones Crytek wants them to make. A new Timesplitters game with local four player split-screen gaming would be amazing. Sadly it looks like no new game is in development.

Sadly with the original developers are fragmented as they are, (I think it's about halfway through the article, I do a mini "Where are they now") - I don't see a new TimeSplitters game coming any time soon... At least not without the core feeling. If we see it come back, I see it come back as a purely competitive online shooter.
