Crytek ‘Thinking About Timesplitters’

Crytek are stroking their beards and going ‘hmmmm’ a lot while thinking about Timesplitters. Co-founder of Crytek, Avni Yerli, has been talking to NowGamer and was questioned about the much loved franchise.

Obviously Timesplitters, historically, was for them [Crytek UK] an important IP. From our perspective we always had a lot of fun playing Timesplitters – Timesplitters 2 was amazing fun.

Crytek and Crytek UK are interested in the IP; we are thinking about it but we’re trying to decide what we could do best with the IP, where we could bring it. There are no concrete plans yet.

  1. I really hope they bring Timesplitters back, would be amazing!

  2. Classics HD the trillogy and make a new one thats what you do with it.

  3. Go on?… :)

  4. ‘Decding’? What is that, some sort of shagging position? Anyway, a new timesplitters would be great, especially with theb Cryengine 3 they have.

  5. Whilst I found these games quite fun, I feel I am missing something as to why they were so popular.

    • Beer plus splitscreen plus one hit kills plus brick as the only weapon

  6. DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! :P :P :P (or a HD collection of the past 3 games)

    But please include a off-line 4 player split-screen mode with bots in a new TimeSplitters game if you do a new one. F**K the same old online FPS BS we keep getting now! :-/I get bored of killing nobodies on-line. I like to see the faces of who i kill sitting next to me! :D

    • This! With 42″ screens the norm now it would make 4 player split screen a lot easier. I don’t know how we used to manage with them tiny CRT’s!

  7. I played Timesplitters 2 a couple of years ago and it’s aged so badly it was truly shocking. Definitely leave sleeping dogs lie. However, if they wanted to reinvent the franchise and retain the quirks, charm, fun-factor then fine. Just don’t pay too much attention to the old one.

    It’s like your grandmother. You feel obliged to give it a kiss on the cheek to say hello but ultimately you dare not look too long for fear of nightmares.

    • I still love the Dam level in TS2 and sometimes load it up just to play that.

  8. What to do with the IP? Hmm, that’s a tough one. Make a sit-com? Or how about a musical, it could rival Spiderman? Really Crytek? Make a game.

  9. Timesplitters2 with online play > Any other FPS

  10. This is a must!
