The lights are on
Though Crytek formally denounced rumors that the company is working on Timesplitters 4 for the next generation Xbox console, co-founder Anvi Yerli says a new game in the series is still on the table.
When Crytek acquired former developer Free Radical in 2009 and renamed it Crytek UK, the company also received rights to all of the studio's intellectual property. Though no one is champing at the bit to see a Haze sequel, the well regarded Timesplitters series may still have value. That begs the question – what does Crytek plan to do with the series?
"Obviously Timesplitters, historically, was for them [Crytek UK] an important IP," Yerli told NowGamer. "From our perspective we always had a lot of fun playing
Timesplitters – Timesplitters 2 was amazing fun. Crytek and Crytek UK
are interested in the IP; we are thinking about it but we’re trying to
decide what we could do best with the IP, where we could bring it. There
are no concrete plans yet."
When NowGamer asked if an HD collection of the previous titles could be in the works, Yerli said, "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..."
What's your take? Are you interested in another Timesplitters game or would you rather the team work on something else?

TimeSplitters 4 would be a great launch game for the Xbox 720 or PS4. If they reboot it period it would be great.
I think they should totally make a new Timesplitters, that game was one of my most played series when I was younger. I miss the wacky shooters I enjoyed playing before most games are super hardcore serious now bring back my Deer heads XD.
btw first real comment.
o denied was 3rd real comment unlike the first post lol
time spliters 3 was probbily my best purchase for my ps2 love to see what they could do with the game
i just hope they still keep the focus on split-screen fun, thts wht made it diffrent and with everygame targetting online, this would be something needed, but given crytek is making it with their graphics and all, i hardly see tht happening:(
I would love another timesplitters. the first one and third one are still some of my favorite FPS games. We'd probably have one by now if HAZE wasn't such garbage
Wouldn't mind seeing him get kicked in the nuts again. Loved just about everything in that game. Weapons varied with time line and the haunted mansion had the perfect over the top flare. (Timeplitters 3)
Future Perfect is still one of my all-time favorites. I can't even imagine how incredible a 4th could be.
I would love Timesplitters 4! But they better keep the old art style and level creation tools. If they try to make the game realistic looking, they're going to piss off a bunch of fans
Work on something else? Are you kidding!? What could be better than a new Timesplitters game?
Oh please please please give us another Time Splitters! I absolutely adore the Time Splitters series. There is nothing quite like them. I can not tell you how many countless hours I spent playing the challenges, like seeing how long I can survive against a swarm of zombie monkeys or how many man sized chickens I can kill in a time limit.
Crytek being focused on a property that has a history (and presumably would continue that with any new entries) of being quite unrealistic and not visually impressive seems... wasteful.
Well, Crytek. What are you waiting for!? I've been played 1, 2 and FP, so I waiting for you to release it! Bunch of rumors what people talking about the new TimeSplitter game in 2008.
They better still be interested Timesplitters is one of the wackiest but most fun FPS ever you dont know how many hours I put into Timesplitters 2
