Crytek Considering a New TimeSplitters Game

Speaking with CVG, Crytek has revealed they're considering the possibility of revisiting the TimeSplitters franchise after Crysis 2's launch.

TimeSplitters was created by Free Radical, which contained former Rare (Goldeneye/Perfect Dark) employees, but after Future Perfect the developer attempted a new IP for the PlayStation 3: Haze. The critical disaster caused the studio to go into administration in 2008, but was rescued by Crytek and renamed Crytek UK. Currently they have been developing the multiplayer component for Crysis 2.

"I love working with our UK friends," said Crytek CEO, Cevat Yerli. "The team has been performing up to the quality bar easily. Our thinking was that the team had done 80-85 rated games, and we thought that with the right technology, IP and global IP direction they could reach the 90 barrier. I'm very confident that they can do that."

TimeSplitters 2 was damn near perfect, so it'd be nice to see the craziest FPS franchise of all-time return, gun-toting monkeys and all.
