Overwatch: Bringing Personality Back to Online Shooters

If you really think about it, there isn’t all that much to Overwatch. It’s an online shooter with a few different game modes and no single player component to speak of.

Despite that, I can’t remember any shooter where the characters and lore have had such a huge affect on gamers. This very well put together FPS has managed to become more than just a game to so many people without even so much as a cutscene. You can see that in the huge amount of cosplay, fan art and yes, even porn.

From looking at the gameplay, it just looks like Fortnite, this would have been very poorly received by timesplitters fans.

Another legendary series that ends brutally.. glad this never came out, it’s an insult to the original one

I'm glad this got cancelled, what's with the Fornite knockoff? TimeSplitters was an FPS, not a 3rd person battle royale.

What were they thinking?

Looks fornitey would've been cool at the time tbh

I got into a minor disagreement with their staff shortly after the closure, after i commented about a Timesplitters HD remaster to gauge public reception before such a big project here:

Looking at the gameplay footage, it's clear that the staff (no matter what level) we're out of their depth, putting lots of hours into a game that would of been DOA if Embracer didn't shut it down.

They removed the footage. Here it is if anyone's interested: https://youtu.be/BesmfPD8fj...

It's basically a Fortnite clone. Seems like a good decision to cancel this game.

To be honest the odds of this ever being good or recapturing the original trilogy were always going to be slim to none. The franchise was a product of its time. Look at how misplaced nostalgia met reality with Goldeneye and Perfect Dark. If you have to use old IP then most of the time you have to completely reinvent it from the ground up.
