Crytek Wants To Make TimeSplitters 4 A Reality

First Person Shooters have largely become a tired genre with each successive release looking more and more like the last. With a few exceptions, the FPS is quickly wearing out its welcome with titles such as Call of Duty now falling into the same hole that killed off staples of the industry such as Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero. For fans of the genre, there is one series that stands out as a work of passion that perfectly blends fun and depth creating something truly unforgettable. That series is TimeSplitters and after the loss of Free Radical, many thought this series was lost. Well, with Crytek absorbing Free Radical, it turns out that many within the studio have a large desire to bring back this series. Crytek producer Peter Holzapfel has stated the studios desire to bring the brand back. There is a Facebook Group set up to gather followers and show the fan desire to see the series make a comeback. With over 35,000 followers, they have a good start but their goal is 100,000 so I am doing my part to support this wonderful campaign and ask that you do the same if you're a fan of this amazing series. If you're not a fan, grab a copy of TimeSplitters 2 or TimeSplitters Future Perfect for the PS2, GameCube or Xbox and get ready for a fun time (don't forget your friends because the multiplayer is AMAZING).
