The lights are on
The last time we saw the Timesplitters series was when Future Perfect released back in 2005. A lot has changed since then, including the development studio Free Radical being acquired by Crytek – but more Timesplitters could be closer than ever.
According to a rumor recently printed in OPM, the big reveal for Timesplitters 4 is just around the corner. The magazine reads: “Gun-wielding monkeys are finally making a comeback! A fourth Timesplitters title is to be announced soon.”
In this case, my guess is that "soon" means "at GamesCom." Also, don't be surprised if/when you see Crytek's name attached to the project. The company has expressed interest in continuing the franchise. If the rumors are true, it's a good time to be a Timesplitters fan!

Sweet! I hope we can make our own maps in the next one as we did in Future Perfect. That was beast lol.
When I was a kid me and my buddy would play timesplitters all the time. I can't wait for the next one!
As a Gamer and a longtime Timesplitters fan I am entitled to a squeal of excitement for one developer each....I think I'll use one here.
I really really hope this is true!!! My favorite video game franchise of all time!!!
Well I have never played Timesplitters, but judging by the sheer amount of excitement in this section, I'm assuming it must have been really good. Well, now that they're with Crytek, I'm assuming the next game will have the Crytek 3 Engine powering it. Awesome graphics + good game? = WIN
After crysis 2, I'm not holding much hope for the series, however much I loved the older games.
These games never had much in the way of story, but were great for senseless, b-movie fun. I wonder if it's going to be the same shallow storyline or if they're going to give us something meatier?
OMG I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR SO LONG
Oh Billy! www.youtube.com/watch
I miss this series so much, glad to see it's still in people's thoughts.
PLEASE OH PLEASE OH PLEASE I NEED THIS GAME
Yeah, I want this to be true.
Played and beat the first three games. Can't wait to here the annoucement. Also MONKEYYYSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!! with guns
o i hope they keep it classic and not try to turn it into a cod clone
and virus mode....i want to play that online so bad :D (never played future perfect, only the previous)
Dear sweet mericful poseidon :O
god knows how much I spent playing the games, 100% completed each game(which I've never done in any other game to date), made a multitude of maps and played the games with my cousins all the time, I actually was playing TimeSplitters 2 less than a week ago.
Also, as excited as I am for Battlefield and CoD, Screw'em, Give me Timesplitters NAO PLZ.
I've just recently gotten back to playing FP! I hope they have better level editors and character creation as well as more characters!
I have been expecting for this for years. I hope its more than a rumor. The best fps shooter series. They should keep all the gamestyle: co-op main story, challenges, splitscreen, tons of characters. But online would be great too.
