Crytek Confirms That TimeSplitters 4 is Not in Development

Posted on April 27, 2012 AT 07:11am

THE BUZZ: Crytek has denied all rumors of TimeSplitters 4 being in development.

A company spokesperson joked to CVG that the company, “spent all of the development budget on buying monkeys.” When asked for a more serious answer regarding the game, the spokesperson replied: ”No, it’s not in development.”

The full statement reads:

“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?”

EGM’s TAKE: This is really sad news for fans. We all got excited at the thought of finally glimpsing the next game, but alas it is not to be. Hopefully Crytek will one day start development on the sequel we all dream of. Who knows, it may even be a next-gen title, that would be even sweeter. In all seriousness though, they should really get those monkeys under control.
