Despite Deep Silver’s rescue of Crytek UK—originally Free Radical Design—ownership of the TimeSplitters IP remains with Crytek, a Deep Silver rep confirmed to Polygon.

“The TimeSplitters IP did not come with the deal—it was only for the Homefront IP,” the rep told Polygon.

As Free Radical Design, the studio developed TimeSplitters, TimeSplitters 2, andTimeSplitters: Future Perfect in 2000, 2002, and 2005 respectively. Once acquired by Crytek in 2009 and renamed Crytek UK, the studio worked on the multiplayer content for Crysis 2 and collaborated with Crytek Frankfurt on Crysis 3.

Now known as Deep Silver Dambuster Studios, the developer continues work on Homefront: The Revolution after being rescued from tumultuous financial issues while under Crtek’s ownership that saw many employees depart the after failing to receive pay for a substantial amount of time. The Homefront IP itself was picked up by Crtek following THQ’s bankruptcy sale in January 2013.

With Crytek transitioning from game developer to online publisher, it’s uncertain as to whether the company will hire out to do anything with the TimeSplitters IP or eventually sell it.
