It's been a long wait for a new TimeSplitters title. A whole generation, in fact. We've been teased with some stunning concept art over the years, but there's not been a realistic prospect of a new TimeSplitters title on the horizon since Free Radical Design went into administration.
If you're not quite all shooter'd out, or you can just about make some room for TimeSplitters, then it's time to sign this petition and let Crytek know. Although they are on record as saying they want to make TimeSplitters 4, they're far from convinced that there's a market for it, as Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli explained to gameinformer:
"There’s a very hardcore market that is very verbal about it. I would love to see this, and if the fan base approves a further petition. They’re trying to call 300,000 voices, I think it’s at two or three thousand right now. If they could get the petition together I would be very happy to put in front of decision makers in the company, the key stakeholders, and say 'Look here. This is how it is, let’s make it now.'"
So if you wouldn't mind seeing a TimeSplitters HD Collection released, and with it the prospects of a fully-fledged sequel, you know what to do - get signing that petition!
