TimeSplitters was probably one of the most inventive first person shooters of its time, a glorious game that a lot of fans look back upon fondly. With shooters getting a renaissance of sorts in recent times – games like DOOM, Titanfall 2, Overwatch, Splatoon, and more are far different from the ordinary expectation of what a shooter should be – now is as good a time as any for a TimeSplitters revival.
Thankfully, it looks like TimeSplitters Rewind, the previously announced remake of the original games in CryEngine, will be releasing later this year. The game is a standalone multiplayer game being developed by fans of the original Timesplitters series. It will include characters, maps, and weapons from all three games completely rebuilt in the new engine. While this is a far cry from a brand new TimeSplitters, for many fans, even this may be enough.
