It's sad when games that fans enjoy don't get made because the franchise might not have mainstream success

And if they do do it then the characters will be dlc. The over abundance of characters and whackyness made the originals so great but 10$ says whytek will turn it into a COD clone.

Half Life 3 on the other hand is being baked to perfection I guess.

This guy chat the biggest shit. People are tired of Crysis. Its a joke of a game. Very average shooter with a terrible multiplayer.

The franchise was made popular when the first crysis had superier graphics compared to console in early stage of cycle. Cysis 2 was very dissapoiting and crysis 3 looks preety much no different.

Timesplitters is the only game that can completely change the ball game. I am prety sure COD fans would love the ultra fast shooter its known for, they could steal huge portion of the market with timesplitters had they made TS4 or A Remake of sort.

A timesplitters would be the very thing crytek would need to change there fortunes around. This idiot cant see it, to busy comparing his shooter to other top shooters and his cry engine to unreal engine. Too much talk and not enough time spent on creating games.

He's the CEO, it's his job to talk up their stuff...

They should release a Time Splitters HD collection to test how gamers respond to it and if it does great then make Time Splitters 4

DeadlyFire4425d ago (Edited 4425d ago )

I don't care how big the company is. If crowdfunding is the only way to give gamers the game they want then its the right way to go.

What this article tells is basically Crytek has admitted they don't want to fund developing a game that is not the norm for games out there today. Publishing it would be a challenge for them, but if they had crowd funding it would be solidly funded and published because its what gamers love. It would also help them gauge how big of a following the series has behind it.

I see nothing wrong with them using crowd funding to publish the game. They themselves are not publishers.

Omg I would love TimeSplitters 4

Please make


topgeareasy4426d ago

I bet they will take out

offline multiplayer

mynameisEvil4426d ago

If they do, I simply wouldn't buy it. The bot matches, especially when friend is thrown in, were my favorite bit of the series. I guess it's just because I'm a sucker for games with bot matches, though.

Grimhammer004426d ago

Agreed. TS4 would be amazing. The only series where I don't find time travel a tedious crutch of story design.

The shooting was always do good in that series.

MilkMan4426d ago

Careful what you ask for...Folks wanted a new Need For Speed and they got The Run made by the same guys that did Carbon and the original Most Wanted and now they want TimeSplitters 4. You gotta know, lighting down strike twice.

Leave it alone.

You wanna relive the good-ol days? play the older games. Thats what they are there for.

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.

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

ryuuzakibjorn2976d ago

Thank-you for the kind words!

ryuuzakibjorn2975d ago

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

PaleMoonDeath2975d ago

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!

BlackIceJoe2975d ago

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.

ryuuzakibjorn2975d ago

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.


Lost in Time: Whatever Happened To The Creators Of Timesplitters?

"Timesplitters 4 will likely never happen, the story behind that is a long and complicated one."

Relientk773114d ago

Would love to see Timesplitters 4

but probably wont happen


PSN_ZeroOnyx3114d ago

It's sad because TimeSplitters 4 would be huge and push PS4 sales even further.


The Optimistic Rebirth of Timesplitters

Timesplitters has always been considered a wonderful oddity in the industry. Nothing compares to the series' wacky antics and insane multiplayer action. Unfortunately despite critical success and a rabid fan base the franchise is struggling against modern forces threatening its very existence.

Triad Gamer takes a look at the Timesplitters series and investigates why after 9 years the franchise is still waiting on a 4th iteration.
