Crytek UK, formerly Free Radical, has categorically denied the rumours seen in Official Xbox Magazine (and digitised by their friends at CVG) that they’re working on Timesplitters 4. By way of countering the claim that a source of OXM’s had played the game, the group of comedians at Crytek UK issued the following statement to CVG.
For Timesplitters 4, with ever spiralling development costs, massive teams and endless crunch we decided on a more radical development strategy.
In short, the experiment was to implement the infinite monkey theorem. With cloning being a far too expensive option, we spent all of the development budget on buying monkeys on the black market.
Those seven monkeys are now sat in a room with typewriters and lots of mirrors, and we fully expect Timesplitters 4 to be finished soon. Rumours are that they haven’t written any code but just tease the press from time to time. Those damn monkeys.
PS: anyone got any bananas?
I think that deserves a round of applause. Or a banana.
