Why a New Timesplitters Could Be the Most Impactful Shooter Since Call of Duty 4

Just a few short years ago, it seemed as if the side-scrolling platformer had, for the most part, gone the way of the dodo. With the dawn of the next generation of consoles, the popularization of digital distribution for video games and the emergence of a burgeoning indie scene, however, they made a comeback in a large way. Games such as Limbo and Braid are considered modern-day classics and sold hundreds of thousands of digital copies. With the recent creation of a Facebook page by a fiercely loyal Timesplitter‘s fan calling for Timesplitters 4, it seems as if the classic first-person-shooter that was hugely popular last generation may (emphasis on the “may”) follow in the footsteps of the paltformer – despite Crytek’s attitude toward the series.

The thing with the Duke was that his game was developed over several generations and was touched by many different hands.

If Crytek starts the game, sees it through to the end and releases it in reasonable time - 3 years tops - then the game will in no way end up like DNF.

The Time-splitters series was the best shooter last gen in my opinion.

Just watch it become a CoD clone.

I would go to Crytek's headquarters and burn it to the ground.
