TimeSplitters 4 News

Concept art for cancelled TimeSplitters 4 shows never-before-seen characters

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.

Again. On FRD's website.

Free Radical has super-duper-double-confirmed that TimeSplitters 4 is in development through a post on its (currently borked) website.

"It's back!" the announcement post began. "Featuring even more crazy characters, devastating weapons and heart pounding hot sweaty action. It's funny, it's frantic and it'll do things you've never seen before! No, not naked girls, even better than that!

"We can't tell you the details yet, the monkeys have a loaded banana pressed against our skull, but this game will take the first person shooter to gaming nirvana. Save the world or die laughing, Timesplitters 4 is coming to getcha!"
