Recent comments made by Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli have spurred fans into launching a petition calling for a TimeSplitters 4 project to appear on Kickstarter.
Speaking at E3 earlier this month, Yerli discussed the much requested shooter claiming he wished the team was working on it. The team even considered starting a Kickstarter project to raise funds, but thought it would be inappropriate for such a large company to rely on fan funding.
These comments have sparked the creation of the “100,000 Strong for Timesplitters 4” campaign, which is calling for fans to show an interest in the sequel.
“We are a group trying to convince Crytek to finish developing TimeSplitters 4! Even if it means doing a Kickstarter,” the group has said. “Even though the page is to gain 100k, we’ll probably need much more. So don’t give up at 100k!”
It appears as if Yerli has been paying attention to this initiative as he wrote on Twitter shortly after its creation, “How big is the TimeSplitters Community? Let me hear you!”
Anyone who is a TimeSplitters fan needs to “Like” this page now. Crytek obviously wants to start work on the project, so we have to make so it has no choice but to create a fourth title. The TimeSplitters games are my favorite first-person shooters of all-time and really capture the fun of multiplayer. I’d be happy with HD remakes of all three titles, but a fourth game would be amazing.
