Well, here's something you probably weren't expecting to hear today - work on the next entry in the TimeSplitters series will commence in the coming months.
Yes, Deep Silver has announced the formation - or should we say, reformation, of Free Radical Design to bring the "much-loved" TimeSplitters IP back to life. The developer will be situated in the UK's Nottingham area.
Key original members of Free Radical Design including the founder's Steve Ellis and David Doak (also former Rare employees), will lead the charge. The studio will advertise positions in due course.
Here's what Steve (the studio's development director) had to say about the return of TimeSplitters:
“To finally be able to confirm that the studio has been formed and that we have a plan for the next TimeSplitters game is incredible. While we cannot tell you anything more at the moment, we look forward to sharing information in the future.”
So, there you go - TimeSplitters is back! Are you looking forward to seeing what these industry veterans come up with? Leave a comment down below.
