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.
Long-in-the-works fan project TimeSplitters Rewind has released a new development update with fresh screenshots and behind-the-scenes footage.
Remember TimeSplitters Rewind, the fan remake of the classic shooter series? It's still being worked on.
Crytek has told Eurogamer it will continue to support TimeSplitters Rewind, the in-development fan remake of the classic British shooter series, as its indie team begins work on a PlayStation 4 port.
Rewind's next-gen console version, announced earlier this week, will support cross-platform play with Rewind's main PC build.
Unlike the PC version, Rewind will allow for classic splitscreen multiplayer on PS4.
