TimeSplitters was an awesome franchise. And it's too bad that developer Free Radical went kaput after the ill-fated Haze .

But the good news is that Crytek snapped up the Free Radical guys, and they're taking notice of a TimeSplitters 4 Facebook fan page .

The goal is to get 100,000 signatures and if that happens…well, there's no guarantee that Crytek will immediately start work on a new TimeSplitters , but at least the fans would've made their point. One ex Free Radical employee, Graeme Norgate (a music composer on past TS titles), said he'd contribute a victory theme song if they hit that goal, and a senior Crytek artist says he'll toss in a character design for the series if the page gets more than 1,000 Likes. …oops wait, already happened! Better get drawin, buddy.

Okay, so it's true that a cartoony shooter like TimeSplitters might have a tough time in this new landscape of totally authentic, gritty, bloody, hard-hitting FPSs. But if the fanbase is still there, we don't have a problem…right?

Oh, and here's a Tweet from Crytek boss Cevat Yerli:

"I had 2 interviews that provoked this question, how big is the Timesplitters Community? Let me hear you!! TS2 rocks, one of my alltime favs!"

Maybe it can be parlayed into a kickstarter deal, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of future games are begun and/or funded by grass roots efforts.

that was already discussed and declined in a interview.
cervat said their too big a company and how it would look on them to look at kickstarter.
just makes it sound like it would hurt his ego…….

Done…..signed the petition, then re-tweeted request directly to Crytek CEO, & also re-tweeted this thread onto my own Twitter too.

It has been sorely missed this generation I would really love for Timesplitters to make a come back – It's one of the only FPS's I can actually enjoy (The military ones just bore me..)

If this actually seems like it's going somewhere I'll sign – but if it's just one of those fans petitions which gets ignored – meh.

With Crytek going F2P… Can't say I'd be interested. Maybe if it turned out as a proper retail release. Guess all I can say is "Find me Ben!" Shouldn't say that though, there's a whole LOT of trees around here ;P

There deffo hasn't been enough shooters this gen with a focus on just having fun. One of the (many) reasons I like Starhawk is it doesn't take itself too seriously, and its mechanics seem more weighted towards fun, than to being serious military shooter #28.
