The newly branded Crytek UK wouldn't rule out the possibility of a new TimeSplitters , although they said it would depend on "market demand."
Well, such a statement is bound to create that demand. Crytek UK is currently hard at work on Crysis 2 – and that CryEngine 3 is getting a whole lot of positive attention – but after they snapped up former TimeSplitters developer Free Radical after the studio was forced into administration late last year, TS fans have been hoping…and hoping… And now, we have a user-made video urgently requesting the fourth installment, and if you want to add your voice to the mix, feel free to sign the online petition . The petition was just started so it's only closing in on 100 signatures but you can bet that more will sign over the coming weeks and months. This is a franchise that always fared well in terms of both sales and critical reception; its highly fluid and cartoon-y exterior always yielded top-notch entertainment, and most recently, the multiplayer really started to take center-stage. There are even a few die-hards who will claim to this day that the multiplayer in TimeSplitters: Future Perfect was better than Halo .
So anyway, we'll have to see how many people out there want TimeSplitters 4 , and if Crytek UK responds.
