While Crytek still anxiously await further signatures on a petition for a proper Timesplitters re-make, they’re apparently more than happy to hand out official to anybody keen to go ahead and make it for themselves.
“I have just had word from Crytek that they are going to permit and support a TimeSplitters CryEngine mod,” wrote Daniel Wesoly, founder of the Timesplitters 4 Facebook page, which boasts over 100,000 members.
“I am now looking for modders that can handle the CryEngine. If I manage to get a group together, then they may let us use assets from the original TimeSplitters game!”
Wesoly’s intends to build a “TimeSplitters all-in-one. All the levels, all the characters and all the weapons”. There’s no more news as yet, but Wesoly is asking for people experienced with CryEngine modding to hit him up — details at the Facebook link above.
