NowGamer: Avni Yerli, co-founder of Crytek has told NowGamer the company is still deciding how best to continue the Timesplitters IP...
I love the series. I want to see what Timesplitters will look like running on Crytek's Cryengine 3. All those bright cartoony colours will really shine, and finally hoist the series into the current gen (and onto PC for the first time!) Hopefully Crytek won't strip it of its funniness or worse, try way too hard to be 'funny' (until it turns into painfully unfunny, à la DNF!) EDIT: 'When we suggested doing an HD collection of existing games, Yerli added: "That’s a good idea! [laughs] There are indeed a lot of games doing it but we haven’t thought about that yet. But it’s a good idea..." Now that's a HD collection I'd pay good money for! If it had online support for the 3 titles, it would be awesome. Not to mention Future Perfect had a really good story mode, that I wouldn't mind having a play through again!
Yeah I would definitely buy an HD collection of timesplitters, if the multiplayer is included as well, even better!
BS they already have the next Xbox development kit and they showed a tech demo behind closed doors at E3
I love Crytek!
imo Timesplitters 3 was the best! i still remember being overwhelmed by the time traveling aspects and by cortez's shenanigans... cortez ftw
i bet it'll suck
I side with Malandra. This is publicity hype.
"Crytek 'Thinking About Timesplitters" -___- I prefer the original team of rare for make new game.
rare didn't make timesplitters....
It wasn't Rare, it was a group of ex-Rare employees who formed a company called Free Radical. Free Radical was bought and renamed Crytek UK, but some very important people left during that change over. So I half-agree with what you're saying. Any attempt at Timesplitters 4 wouldn't be the same without these people, Steve Ellis (who developed Goldeneye's multiplayer mode) and David "Dr." Doak in particular.
Free Radical was purchased by Crytek and renamed Crytek UK, so The "original" company, just renamed will probably have a hand in making another Timesplitters game. edit: as for the specific people involved digitaleraser has more info than I do.
The game will feel like a crysis mod
true, but it seems that most of the older gaming companies like rare that were in their prime back in the late 90s just can't make gameplay that stacks to other titles these days. Not saying that's true for all of the developers, like epic for example. But while we are talking about rare, yea, I rest my case with games like perfect dark zero.
@geth1gh: Right, but Rare is just an empty shell at this point. You have to remember, almost no one who worked on Goldeneye or Perfect Dark were still at Rare to do PDZ...there's Ken "Klobb" Lobb, and that's pretty much it. People seem to get too focused on developer names, and forget that a dev name means nothing if the individuals who made it great are no longer there. And the people responsible for making Goldeneye 007 and Perfect Dark quality games for their time all either left to create Free Radical, or were Martin Hollis.
After seing this headline i had to read this article. Because i have some news of my own witch make of it what you will. But could lead to another time splitters. As many others i always found time splitters one of the best looking and fun playing games of last gen. When i heard that the company went bust i wasnt happy i was very sad for the devs. However when i heard that crytek was gonna employ these guys. so they can give them input on the console scene i was really pleased. 2 of the best devs you could want. Now for my news my personal info read into it what you like. When littlebigplanet first launched there was figures of sack boy. Many ppl sold them on ebay. I was one of thoe ppl a grown man of 33 not too intrested in toys like that these days. So i put mine up for bid. Sure enough it sold, only the buyers name caught my eye, so i messaged back stating congratulation on being the winning bid and asked him cheekly are you got any plans of making another timesplitters. He responded he said yes i am part of the team that made timesplitters but im one of the artists, intestingly he told me as for the next timesplitters. All we have in production like many others is just Art Concept' So of course i couldnt beleave my luck not only have i sold to a dude who works on this game but hes bought my sack boy and told me theres art work flying around. Thoe all this well and good this was b4 the company went bust. Untill i read tis today i didnt think it would happen it is there game they know it was top. COULD IT BE ? I hope so :)
Lol @ disagree doesnt matter i know a member freeradical messaged me and bought my ebay item. Yes morbius it is one smooth gem of a game. Replayablility was awsome unlocking cheats made it fun.
still one of the smoothest games ever.
Thinking? They should be doing!!
I didn't get to play timesplitters that much, not that i didn't want to but because i just didn't have the time. But now if this is true then I'm probably going to play this one.
Timesplitters 2 is by far the best one. All of them after part 2 went straight downhill
HD collection of previous Time Splitter games would be a day 1 buy for me.
Same, anything Timesplitters is a day one for me :P, spent hundreds upon hours playing each of them back in the PS2 days.
same for me I love timesplitters
Do it Crytek.Do it!
WTF? You guys haven't started making it yet?
Think harder. Make it happen!
crytek is a top class dev! anything they touch will be fantastic! but i want crysis 3! :)
I guess you don't own Crysis 2 on 360 then. The game has major problems that still haven't been fixed 3.5 months later. Crytek has potential but they're a bunch of amateurs...... or they just don't care about fixing issues that they themselves have admitted exist.
Have to agree. I own it on ps3 and it is horrible. Bad a.i, average graphics, average sound, poor level design. Over hyped.
PLLLLLEEEEEAAASSSSEEEEEEEEE TIMESPLITTERS!!!! Or at less a remake for Timesplitters: Future Perfect xD
I hate remakes, I'd so much rather have a sequel. But if they take influence from modern FPSs', then I don't wanna know
I seriously love Future Perfect. Please Crytek UK, it needs to happen ASAP!
Don't do it crytek. timesplitters need the original developers.
Crytek OWN the original developers. These same devs who made Timesplitters and Haze was bought by Crytek and renamed to Crytek UK
ok then whoever made the old ones, make them now! :) looking at crytek
Crytek UK are Free Radical (Timesplitters original devs) http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
I would prefer a HD remake of these CLASSICS with MP instead of Crytek do this and MAYBE f**king it up!
We knew this a while ago
They need to make timesplitters 4 soon!
Do not think crytek do and you've got a buyer right here. P.S If you used Monkey you were a cheating mofo just saying...
Two words for them. DO IT!
Crytek + Timesplitters = Pure Awesomeness
HD Timesplinters: Future Perfect with psn support. One of my favorite game of all time. OF ALL TIME I can't tell you guys how much I love that game.
I would only want a new Timesplitters if it was from Crytek UK (previously Free Radical). The developers of Crysis can go suck it. Free Radical FTW!
Just make sure they bring back the gun-toting monkeys.
Hey, I got a a crazy idea... start by rounding up all the Free Radical guys... ALL OF THEM... and asking them...
You want to see a new Timesplitters, but you don't want the guys who did Timesplitters to do it? @maxmill I won't go that far, but I will say that it was the first FPS that showed me that they can be fun.
but they are already making Timesplitter 4 so this is OLD news as the game has been in production. Crysis Warhead 2 or better yet they can buy the Lone Wolf Flight from the Dark I.P. which was stopped due to Ksatria closing down BUT Red entertainment has picked it up BUT I wish Crytek would buy this game and stick it on the CryEngine 3 with DX11 day 1 and i would buy buy buy it.
YES! Timesplitters is the greatest FPS series of all time
yes do it! I was just thinking about Timesplitters the other night. I had so much fun 4 player multiplaying with my brother and freinds not to mention all the CPU's runnng about back in the day, Fun times. I hope they make a 4th imagine all the madness and goings on when playing online :D If they do they need to make atleast 16 player online that would be awesome!
I had to take some TIME out to say this. Trust me Crytek. WE ARE ALL thinking about it too. This would be some much needed freshness. AH I remember the good ol' 4-player split screen. :) Loads of chips and soda and great times! EDIT: Your fans deserve this!
Yes I love the Timesplitters series
WTF do they mean "HOW?" . The same way as Timesplitters2. Dont fricken change it. why do I get the feeling its gonna be some COD clone
Considering the Crysis 2's multiplayer was basicly a COD-clone, I think Timesplitters 4 might get the same treatment. It's the same developer after all.
Great, another glitchy FPS from Crytek that never gets fixed. I'll pass.
Hope they make it, miss this series.
Would be great to see the series back. Might have to dust it off and take a trip down memory lane.
Don't want to be offensive or anything,.. because I never finished Crysis 1, Crysis 1 Warhead or Crysis 2,..Actually played Warhead the most,.. There is just something about Cryteck games, that really doesn't resonate with me,.. I actually think Far Cry 1 was their best designed game,.. Let's hope for the best, but I really don't want them to have this IP. Their tech is pretty great,. but gameplay element design and creativity,.. their games are missing a certain je ne se qua in my opinion,..but then again some people love their games and pacing,..
i enjoyed the way you worded this. :D
Hell Yess !! But Don't make it on the cry-engine 3 :(
i wish they would stop thinking about it, and make the bloody game already, huge amount of hours in my teens killed in just fighting bots, i loved Timesplitters 2!
They should do it but keep the progression system based on unlocking characters in balls to the wall challenges. Only this time, the challenges can be multiplayer. Kick ass story, multiplayer just how it was, TRANCY MUSIC of great importance, no perk bullshit in sight. I will buy it. And if they aint feeling risky, i'll take HD TS2 with multiplayer support.
They better think HARDER. That mess of a game called Crysis 2 shouldn't be what Crytek is remember for. The sooner they release better stuff the better, oh and NO ENERGY BARS TO MANAGE. Let professional's design your games, not tech heads.
Four Player Split-Screen. 32 player Virus Online. That is all.
only if free radical would have done another time splitters instead of that p.o.s b.s haze..
