Crytek UK Employees Want to Work on TimeSplitters 4, Pretty Please!
Are you a fan of the insanely popular time travel based first person shooter series, TimeSplitters? Of course you would be if you have been playing game since the turn of the millennium. However, we haven’t had the pleasure of getting TimeSplitters 4 in our hands.
It might have been a rough period for Crytek UK, with all the rumors about redundancies and delayed salaries; however, the studio expected to make TimeSplitters 4 have spoken out about it again.
Mark Jackson, an animator at Crytek UK was talking to journalists at the recently held Develop Conference where he was questioned about the project that has been windswept for a while now.
If you thought that it had been canned for good, thankfully you are wrong as Jackson says ‘God no!’ moving on to explain how ‘in the studio it’s held very dear. It’s just waiting for the right situations and deals to be done. I’m not privy to that, but from everybody working at the studio – everyone, whenever we say what would you like to do next, it’s TimeSplitters.’
That being said, he also reiterated that the fans of the game haven’t lost interest in the next TimeSplitters game as well saying ‘You would not believe the amount of times people ask for Timesplitters.’
He did say, in so many words, that the game had not been dismissed; it was above his pay grade to talk about whether or when it would come out and who exactly has the strings to the project.
Let’s hope that Crytek UK has enough juice in them to churn out TimeSplitters 4 anytime soon.
