Crytek CEO urges fans to sign TimeSplitters petition for sequel or HD re-release

TimeSplitters

Fan favourite TimeSplitters has been awaiting a fourth installment for years. After witnessing the collapse of developers Free Radical, and seeing the IP being bought by Crytek UK, fans hoped this would mean the new life would be breathed into the series.

Many years later, though, and fans are still waiting. Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has said that he’d love the game to see the light of day again, either as an HD re-release or with a sequel, but he’s not sure how the game would be received in today’s market. “I would love to see the game out there, as a newborn HD version or what not. I definitely would love to see it. But the case of turning this into a business decision is still difficult,” he told GameInformer.

What would make-or-break his business model, however, would be getting 300,000 signatures on this fan-made petition.

“Unfortunately the petition doesn’t look that convincing. If the petition picks up it will be an even better argument for us,” he claimed.

“There’s a very hardcore market that is very verbal about it. I would love to see this, and if the fan base approves a further petition. They’re trying to call 300,000 voices, I think it’s at two or three thousand right now. If they could get the petition together I would be very happy to put in front of decision makers in the company, the key stakeholders, and say ‘Look here. This is how it is, let’s make it now.’”

Since the media has picked up on the petition, that number has jumped from ‘two or three thousand’ to over 30,000. Seems like we can definitely make a difference with this one! If you’ve been waiting for a TimeSplitters sequel or even just want to see it re-released for modern consoles, make sure you add your signature!

Let’s make this happen, I love me some Timesplitters.

 

TimeSplitters was one of my favorite games when I was younger, I would LOVE to see this back.

 

/signed

 

Hmmmmmm ok I signed it. Hated Timesplitters 2 but mostly because of their dumb aim mode thing they did, I hear they dropped it with Timesplitters 3 and used proper aiming like every other shooter.

Also I missed out on a perfect score on one of the ‘stay away from the flaming monkey’ modes by 0.03 seconds. T_T HE CAME FROM BEHIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Don’t have to ask me twice.

 

A new Timesplitters on the Crytek engine would be pretty awesome. 2 was the best by far.

 

Signed. Loved TS2, it’s a great title. Can’t think of too many fps’s on consoles that have a built-in map editor that’s as fun to play with as it was. With modern consoles you could also make it easier to share the results with friends, if they do it right. Unless they’re worried about the whole “Time To Penis” thing? :P

 

Signed. Where else am I going to get my zombie monkey killing fix?

Can’t count the amount of hours I spent with thier games, especially Perfect Dark thanks to the amount of multi-player challenges. I always hated setting up the game mode and trying to make things different, so it was good to have a huge list of pre-made multiplayer challenges to go through with my friends.
