TimeSplitters 4 To Deal Final Blow To Xbox One
TimeSpliiters 3 was the last of the series, released in 2008 on Xbox, PS2 and GameCube it was hugely popular with gaming fans throughout. Timesplitters 4 has been a whistle in the wind but no confirmation or whisper had been given on a possible new game.
There were big rumours going around the web in 2011/12 that Time splitters 4 was indeed in development and would be making an appearance with the next-gen consoles. This was the case until the studio developing the series went into administration and Crytek took the reins. Once this happened, they immediately suspended the work on the upcoming shooter indefinitely.
To sweeten the blow, Crytek announced they would release ‘TimeSplitters: Rewind” for both the PS4 and PC. To add to the news further, they said it would be completely free to everyone.
“TimeSplitters Rewind is a fantastic initiative that Crytek continues to support,” Nick Button-Brown, the general manager of games for Crytek
After the takeover when the question was put to TimeSplitters series developer Steve Ellis, “Do you think the series will be developed again for the future?” he replied:
“I don’t think there’s any chance that’s going to happen.”
Now this is where it gets really interesting, we have given you the background story above so everything is better understood. You may have read the above and think “This is about TimeSplitters not coming back”. You would be wrong.
When Crytek took over the studio, they announced the work on the game was suspended, forever. From a close source which wished to remain unnamed, this was not the case at all. The game was still in very early development and was not going to be ready for the first year of next-gen release. They announced TS: Rewind to almost confirm the end of the series, but this was never the plan.
Our source mentioned in detailed to us, TimeSplitters 4 will be coming to PS4 as an “Exclusive” and describe the game as the “Xbox One killer.” A lot of focus has been put onto the release of Titanfall with the Xbox one but this is one of many cards Sony have up their sleeves for the PS4.
We don’t know when the game will be announced but the real possibility of TimeSplitters 4 is ever more emerging. As more details come to us, we will update you.
