TimeSplitters 4
Crytek Gauging Demand For TimeSplitters 4 on Twitter
Written By
View author's profile

We'll clear this one up for Crytek right now and save the studio the hassle. YES. Pretty much everyone wants TimeSplitters 4, and has been wanting TimeSplitters 4 for the best part of seven years. Still, despite a clear demand for the game, Crytek Founder and CEO Cevat Yerli has been putting out the feelers on Twitter in an effort to get a handle on the community's feelings about a new TimeSplitters.

"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!" Yerli tweeted in response to an earlier conversation on a TimeSplitters forum. We suggest getting on Twitter and pestering Yerli to get on the case and sort TimeSplitters 4 out sharpish.

Crytek had recently announced that TimeSplitters 4 isn't in development, stating that it had been the iconic TimeSplitters monkeys doing all the teasing. "In short, the experiment was to implement the infinite monkey theorem. With cloning being a far too expensive option, we spent all of the development budget on buying monkeys on the black market," Crytek's tongue-in-cheek statement read.

"Those seven monkeys are now sat in a room with typewriters and lots of mirrors, and we fully expect Timesplitters 4 to be finished soon. Rumours are that they haven't written any code but just tease the press from time to time. Those damn monkeys."

Here's hoping that Yerli's latest tweet is just the first signs that TimeSplitters 4 is in the offing soon. Fingers crossed that those monkey's get it sorted.

[Thanks, WattAShot]

Not making a TimeSplitter 4 would be Crytek biggest mistake since it is, for me, the best FPS on console (not many FPS (if none) have tons characters, tons of multiplayer modes, SPLITSCREEN for 4 players !!, tons of weapons, tons of unlockable and tons of humour...).

I told Konami I'd buy Poy Poy 2 twice if they put out an update/HD Remix/XTREEM version but got no response. :(

I guess I'll humour the Timesplitters community and join in the badgering.

I hate how disconnected companies are from their consumer base. He could type "Timesplitters 4" into google and answer his own question.

Also, TS:FP is far superior to TS2.

If it came out i doubt i would buy it, i played TS1&2 years ago on my ps2 and pretty much only have good memories. Throw in 15 randoms/lag and general online bs and i doubt my memories would be good

Talk about not being in touch with your community. If Crytek and any sense they would know by now that making TS4 is a NO BRAINER!!

Combine TS 1 & 2 to release on XBLA and I will be a happy gamer.
TS1 was the whole reason I bought a PS2.
TS2 was very fun on OX.
TS3? Never tried.

Its because companies constantly ignore the fans.

Look at koonami they ignored metal gear solid 1 for the hd collection.
Resident Evil classics fans wanted old school from re1-3, ten years later and still be ignored.

A lot of people wanted halo games like halo 1-3 but instead we got Reach.
A lot of fans wanted world war 2 CoD games but we ended up with generic action, even now the future, completly ignored the classic fans.

Should I go on? games like star wars battlefront 3 nowhere in site or half life 3. I could on all day about company's that don't listen. Like whats taking so long for sonic adventure 2 for xbla or why doom's lag was never fixed in the xbla ports or why Yu-gi-oh didn't include any story? Any fans may disgree or agree with some of these comments but I'm sure one of these comments have annoyed some of you at some point.

Enough with the modern shooters. Lets have some real fun and humour in a game. Timesplitters franchise needs to carry on. Why do game developers not listen to the people buying their games. Make us smoething that we really wanna play.

@22 - Not always the case. Some companies are simply to busy to go back and work on remakes, especially when they're working on new games.

Let's be honest, TS4 would sell well enough, as long as they stuck true to what made it great in the first place. Loads of challenges, characters, a great story mode and a map editor. Throw in some online fun and job done.

This is exactly like square enix pretending that there isn't enough demand for a ff7 remake.

Either these execs are hideously ignorant or they really are playing a pathetic dumb act so they can come off as saviours when they announce what we've been asking for 20 years later

TS2 is and always will be my favourite ever game, let alone shooter. So many happy memories of Elimination games with my little brother using only remote mines.

In fact while at uni last year the nostalgia was enough to go out and buy a PS2 again and play all through the Story, Arcade League and Challenge modes again. Will never get old for me.

TS 4 sounds like a 2014 release. I'd also wait for it on next-gen if that's even going to be any good.

I would buy anything that had to do with TimeSplitters! Either and new one or an old one that they remade. I personally would like them to remake timesplitters 2 for arcade. I would also settle for 3.

Why not do an anniversary edition like Halo CE? I doubt it would take that much money to do a HD remake of TS2. Release it on XBLA and if it doesn't take of don't develop TS4.

Right now if Timesplitters 4 came out it would dominate the market. The reason for this is the fact that despite Halo moving in a more "modern" direction we have a lack of arcade shooters like the Unreal Tournament series. Timesplitters 4 would be the only arcade shooter on the market AND I'm almost certain that millions of people would buy it. I know I put more than 200 hours into Timesplitters 2 and Future Perfect and would gladly put that time into a new Timesplitters game. Crytek stop dicking around and do what is obviously right!
