Absolute shame on Embracer if they bring back a dead studio just to kill it off again before they have enough time to make their first new game.

Relientk77203d ago

Wow wtf... you get all of the TimeSplitters fans, including me, excited by bringing back Free Radical, and now you kill everyone's hopes and dreams just like that. I'm so disappointed.

Gardenia202d ago

TimeSplitters were special games. It would have been great now with online multiplayer to play these games PVP or co op.

Snookies12203d ago

This is terrible, if true... Why can't we live in a timeline where we have Timesplitters again? I'm not entirely sure if this is affecting the one being worked on outside of Free Radical. I just miss this series so much, I want something... Anything...

Crows90203d ago

I think that insomniac could do a good timesplitters...without all the progressive crap hopefully.

ZwVw203d ago

All of those comments about Embracer being a better fit for Acti-Blizz, as opposed to MS, have aged gracefully..

Joe913203d ago

I know this is a bit out there but Sony should buy them. They aquired a lot of studios that made a lot of good games, I personally was hoping for a Legacy of Kain sequel or a reboot but I doubt that happens now.

DarXyde202d ago

I don't know that they would be willing to make that purchase after Haze.

Even then, I'm very apprehensive about acquisitions. Just seems like a lot to take on for a studio that is not very prolific.

That's great news. Hopefully the Coalition can smooth some of those edges from the last Avowed reveal.

Well I'm annoyed. Especially at all the ppl who said the graphics sucked. It's your fault they probably shifted the game to unreal so it could look more fancy for you. I was ok with it and hoping to actually play it sometime soon. Now it's like 99% chance it's delayed.
Edit: effing graphics whores

What the hell are you talking about dude? Avowed was already in development using the UE5. The Coalition is just helping Obsidian in the transition to its latest version (5.3)

Probably not even that big of a difference. Coalition might only have helped because they got a deadline to meet.
