Ah, good old Timesplitters. If you remember the game you probably have some good memories. If you don’t remember it you are really missing out and I feel a little bad for you. Of course you could always go pick up a used copy somewhere to refresh your memory.
Well anyway, as you may know, Free Radical fell apart in 2009. Crytek swooped in and bought them out and basically left Timesplitters to die. They feel like there isn’t enough of a demand in a game like that in today’s market. The CEO however stated that he would be happy to push forward with a HD remake if this petition got 300,000 signatures. Sales on that would of course show them whether or not they should move forward with Timesplitters 4.
The company formerly known as Free Radical Design (now Crytek UK), who employs many who worked on the original Goldeneye 007 for the N64, has begun an official campaign to save TimeSplitters 4 on Facebook. CEO Cevat Yerli stated last week that TimeSplitters was in trouble due to financial problems at Crytek UK and being unable to pitch the title due to uneasiness about lackluster sales of previous TimeSplitters games.
As a response to this, Crytek UK has set up a Facebook page devoted to saving TimeSplitters 4. If you want a new TimeSplitters title, make sure to speak up!
