It looks as though TimeSplitters might be making a return in the near future as Crytek UK - formerly Free Radical - are speaking to publishers about bringing the franchise back.
"We're talking to publishers at the moment about whether that's [TimeSplitters] a viable route or not," said Karl Hilton, the boss of Crytek UK.
"There hasn't been a TimeSplitters game for quite a while. Obviously TimeSplitters is a FPS with a strong multiplayer element. The question is, is that the way to go with another one, or should it go down a different route, or should we be developing a new IP altogether?"
TimeSplitters 4 was in development before they went into administration in 2008.
