"Hopes are high" for TimeSplitters 4

TimeSplitters 4 could yet become a reality… although it won’t be a retail game.

That’s according to Crytek, which is the current owner of the studio once known as Free Radical and now working under the guise of Crytek UK.

Wasn't it originally in development for Nintendio before the Crytek buy out?

Wouldn't be a bad choice to produce another, Timesplitters is a popular franchise, albeit somewhat forgotten about.

Big question for me, could Crytel make a game that's actually built around fun gameplay rather than number of dynamic light sources?

GammaSix4413d ago

Please, i really need this game. With an industry over run with COd cod clones, bringing back the most enjoyable FPs series would make the world such a better place.

LoaMcLoa4413d ago

Not really liking the whole F2P-concept.. But I really want to see some more Timesplitters

Crytek Gives Brief Update on New Crysis Game; Studio Has a "Great Team" Working on It

Crytek gives an update on their new Crysis game, confirming that it's still in development, with more to share down the road.

DefenderOfDoom2222d ago

Actually would love a new Crysis campaign.

P_Bomb222d ago

Ditto. Ran through them again last year. I’ll grab the new one.

Crazyglues221d ago (Edited 221d ago )

Yeah they really messed up by not adding the Multi-player to the Crysis Triogly because while the campaign was fun I really loved the Multi-player and couldn't wait to see what it was going to be like on current gen.

They could have dropped new maps and DLC and fans would have bought it up... -But they dropped the ball and did just the Campaign's with no new content or story, which was just crazy.

Anyway still hoping Crysis 4 is the whole Chicken Sandwhich with all the toppings.... Can't wait.

PrinceOfAnger221d ago (Edited 221d ago )

Yeah It will probably be 5 years development

SimpleSlave221d ago (Edited 221d ago )

That's awesome. So how long till the studio closes and everyone gets fired?

Series S owners: "but can it run crysis doh?"

Crytek Sends Cease and Desist To A Popular Photo Mode Modder Frans Bouma

Immersed Gamer writes: "Frans Bouma just received a Cease and Desist letter from Crytek, developers of Crysis. Did he pirate their game? Or maybe he infringed on their copyright? What horrible thing did Bouma do to deserve this? Well, he modded in a photo mode so that people could take beautiful pictures and share them on social media."

Open source the code and dump it on the internet.

"from his Patreon page" Uhhhh yeah.......Oh gee and I wonder why that was problem? You know where this goes there Filip or perhaps you are just not quite yet.

Mazgamer911d ago (Edited 911d ago )

It's astounding how quickly someone uniformed will take a side of soulless company just because a modder might be making some pocket change.

For your information: He puts all of his camera mode mods on GitHub, completely free of charge. His Patreon is nothing more than a way to tip him some cash for his work.

He says so himself on his GitHub page:
I do this for fun, not profit, but can't create cameras for games I don't own. I've therefore setup a Patreon page which allows you to safely support my work".

Are you following "mastershredder", or are you not quite there yet?

Giblet_Head911d ago

I did some digging and from what I can see it's probably the "early access" releases of his mods only through Patreon that may have stirred Crytek to send the C&D. Apart from that his mods are indeed available free of charge through his GitHub page.

CobraKai911d ago

It’s a non-profit mod tho. It confuses me cuz modders can do things like completely overhaul the art assets of a game or add licensed cars, but adding a photo mode seems to get the cease.

Orchard911d ago

I guess they want to be the next T2/Rockstar...

Fishy Fingers911d ago

Rarely do you see something with so much potential (Crytek) shoot themselves in the foot so many times.

BlackIceJoe911d ago

Instead of sending a C&D Crytek should thank him, for this, because this will lead to more people buying and playing the game.
