Beloved British shooter series TimeSplitters has been bought by Koch Media, and it sounds like something is in the works.
It feels like the world may never see another TimeSplitters - the humour-infused first-person shooter series from defunct British developer Free Radical Design.
It's a huge shame - 2000's TimeSplitters, 2002's TimeSplitters 2 and 2005's TimeSplitters: Future Perfect were some of the best shooters of their generation, made by many of the same team behind the legendary 007: Goldeneye. There's not been much like them since.
It's widely known that a fourth TimeSplitters was once in development - firstly at Free Radical Design in 2007, and then again after the studio rebranded as Crytek UK. But nothing ever got far enough to be announced.
Last month, we learned of a cool Easter egg in Homefront: The Revolution. Now, we can show it in action.
TimeSplitters 2 developer Free Radical Design had an HD version of the game in development before the studio shut down, an ex-staff member has revealed.
Former Free Radical Design and Rare developers have joined forces to create a new studio.
