Crytek have told CVG that the studio is thinking about a potential Timesplitters game. The last Timesplitters was the 2005 Timesplitters: Future Project for the PlayStation 2, Xbox and Gamecube.

"Yeah, we have been discussing it, but nothing has been confirmed yet, so let's see after Crysis 2," Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli told CVG.

Timesplitters 4 was in development but went under when developer Free Radical closed its doors. Acquired by Crytek and renamed Crytek UK, the team is now working on the multiplayer component of Crysis 2.

"I love working with our UK friends," Yerli said. "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.

"Today we have around 70 plus team members working on multiplayer only," he added. "That's a huge commitment from our company and was only possible because Free Radical had that capacity and was able to grow quite fast after we took it over."

Crysis 2 hits stores March 22 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. As for Timesplitters, we'll have to wait until Crysis 2 launches. March can't come quick enough.
