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?

I never got to play any of the Timesplitter games so I'd definitely pick up an HD collection.
man i would kill for a timesplitters 4, or even an xbox 360 HD version of TS 1,2 and 3
I'm liking this
i want ninja monkeys, and robot monkeys, and zombie monkeys. i want timpesplitters 4 to have ninja robot zombie monkeys. if they just released timesplitters 3 with some updates honestly i would be pretty dang happy.
isn't the next xbox coming out like 5 or so years from now
I feel like the only person in the world that wants Haze 2. I thouhgt the story and gameplay were great.
I'd rather have a new Timesplitters though. TS2 had a great story but FP's mapmaker was fantastic. Hopefully they plan to bring that back with a new installment.
No doubt I’m interested. Been hoping for another Timesplitters since this generation of consoles released.
timesplitters basically defined my time with my gamecube, im really excited for a new one
This would be HANDS down the BEST HD remake or fallow up story in the history of anything. EVER.
HD collection and a new game please
I never got to play the Timesplitters games, but I've heard good things. Hopefully they do release a collection so I could try them out. =)
I have very fond memories of those games.
Crytek can't be working on Timesplitters. There's no room for the word "Cry" in the title.
Would be excited for a new one.
I loved playing 2 as a kid. HD collection or TimeSplitters 4? I'll be satisfied with both.
I LOVED TimeSplitters 2 & 3, been waiting for 4 since GI ran that incredibly brief article about it years ago, with the imitation Gears Cog logo with the TimeSplitters monkey head. Hella funny
