TimeSplitters Studio radical reform finally has a new breakthrough



After years of speculation, fan requests and wrong start, TimeSplitters finally returned, provided by publisher Deep Silver and many original developers. DeepSilver announced today that many of the “key original members” of Free Radical Design already own the studio including founders Steve Ellis and David Doak under the same name. . The studio will serve as a subsidiary of Deep Silver.

Ellis said: “It is incredible to be able to confirm that the studio has been established and we have made plans for the next “TimeSplitters” game.” As the studio development director. “Although we cannot tell you more at this time, we hope to share information in the future.”Sadly, we may have to wait a while to see what Free Radicals is making; in a few months, development on the new TimeSplitters is not expected to start, and the team hopes to spend some time establishing its studio in Nottingham first.

TimeSplitters is a first-person shooter series Doc, Ellis, Karl Kilton and Graeme Norgate were planned by him before leaving Rare four years ago. TimeSplitters was originally released as a PlayStation 2 starter game in 2000, and echoes elements of previous rare shooting games, such as GoldenEye007. It takes place in a number of different time periods, with 18 independent characters fighting nominal enemies, and these creatures can travel through time and wreck history using special crystals.

It got a sequel to TimeSplitters 2 in 2002, and another work called TimeSplitters: Future Perfect in 2005. After Free Radicals struggled to find the publisher of the fourth game, Deep Silver’s parent company Koch Media stranded these rights on Crytek for many years in 2018.
