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.

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)

MrBaskerville18h ago(Edited 18h ago)

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

Unreal isn't nearly as bad as Unity when you update a project. Though it obviously depends on the project. But unity generally gets an aneyurism if you threaten to update, where Ue is usually less stingy.

In excited for Avowed and Gears 6.

It already was Unreal 5, its just moving to the latest build.

CantThinkOfAUsername10h ago

Latest build is 5.4 and it's better than previous iterations, particularly in animation and performance.

Apparently the latest build looks way better graphically. This rumor from Jez Cordin (who's credible) pretty much confirms it.

Interested in seeing more on Avowed in a few weeks.
