TimeSplitters could find a new home on Crytek’s GFACE free-to-play platform, according to company founder Cevat Yerli.
Yerli explained that he would love to make another TimeSplitters game, however publishers just aren’t interested in picking the franchise up. “I wish we would develop it. We can’t develop it the way Free Radical had started it before we acquired them,” he said.
“When we looked at it – and again, I love TimeSplitters, I’m a huge TimeSplitters fan particularly of the multiplayer part. I love the idea, I love the brand, I love everything – but the publishers don’t. That’s reality. And I don’t want to spend our own money on the project in a retail business.”
He left some hope, as he teased a second way that TimeSplitters 4 could see the light of day, “So let me say it this way: I love the picture of Timesplitters running on GFACE. So if we get enough fans, being loud enough…”
