TimeSplitters

It’s been over a decade and a half since we got the last TimeSplitters game, but a return of the franchise has been on the cards for some time now. Holding company Embracer Group acquired the IP back in 2018, and a year later, the series’ co-creator and co-founder of original developer Free Radical Design Steve Ellis joined up to help plot the future of the series. Now, we have (somewhat) concrete news on what that’s going to look like.

Deep Silver has announced that Free Radical Design is being reformed under the leadership of original co-founders David Doak and the aforementioned Steve Ellis. The studio will begin development on the next TimeSplitters game, though Deep Silver states that development hasn’t yet started. More news on the same will be shared when they “have more news to share.”

Free Radical Design was acquired by Crytek in 2009 following reports of bankruptcy, following which they were restructured as Crytek UK, and would go on to work on Crysis 2, Crysis 3, and Warface. Internal restructuring led to much of the staff being laid off in 2014, following which many core members of the team would go on to form Dambuster Studios (also owned by Deep Silver), who are currently working on Dead Island 2.
