Further indications have pointed to a TimeSplitters 4 project underway at the studio which built its reputation on the popular FPS series.
Alleged “trusted anonymous sources” have revealed to Official Xbox Magazine a playable build of the project, though the magazine claims in its latest issue there is “no guarantee” that the game will progress and be published.
The first three TimeSplitters games were built at Nottingham studio Free Radical Design, which in 2008 was rescued by Crytek after entering administration.
Now rebranded Crytek UK, the studio initially focused much of work on Crysis 2, and today has allocated resources to the THQ game Homefront 2.
However, due to the size of the studio and gap between projects, it appears likely that another game – such as TimeSplitters 4 – could have been worked on.
Crytek has not once publicly announced work on TimeSplitters 4.
