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!

i frickin loved 2 and future perfect, cant wait for the next one
just think ts fans we are finaly getting the shooter we have all been waiting on.
This is the most exciting news I've heard since Mass Effect 3 gets Kinect compatibility. Timesplitters 2 and 3 are among some of my favorite games of all time, with the humor, game-play variety, and more content per package than any other franchise in history. Now that console gaming has moved into the era of online play and DLC, Timesplitters has even more opportunity to shine as a franchise. Let's hope the game-play can still contend with today's heavy hitters.
I absolutely loved the last Timesplitters game, and I totally think another one would inject the FPS market with some much needed comedy and creativity!
awesome, I loved this series when it was on PS2
save the monkeys will ya?
I'd love to see a new Timesplitters, but they should reinvent the franchise instead of slap a 4 on the end of it.
Wasn't much of a fan, played Timesplitters 2 and 3, ill probably rent it though.
Well, it looks like TimeSplitters might be close to getting off of IGN's "Life Support" list...for what that's worth...
Please do it crytek i will preorder your limited edition (or epic, legendary, balls of steel whatever you want to call the top edition.) the first day it's available (hope it comes with a statue of the monkey with dual sub machine guns not trying to plan ahead or anything)
If this is their next "Mysterious Shooter", bring it on. This is one of the best shooters of all time, and I can't express the joy that we would all receive if this project was made into reality.
OHH!!! HELL YES!!!....IF THIS HAPPENS.....I SHALL GET WAT EVER EDITION THEY GIVE IT!!!!
That would be the best announcement all year if that happened.
That monkey wins. Pure and simple.
TS is fantastic. I love the challenges and the countless number of characters in multiplayer. Mostly the different monkeys. I used to be a ninja monkey with an army of cyborge monkeys and go up against a bunch of security guys. That or the "Deerhunter". That thing was creepy.
