    Crytek co-founder Avni Yerli has told NowGamer that it’s currently considering how to bring back its immensely popular TimeSplitters franchise. Sadly there’s “no concrete plans” at present, but it’s encouraging that the company are thinking about bringing back one of the best first person shooter franchises of all time.[/p]

    TimeSplitters 2 was the saving grace of the GameCube for me, much like Bloody Roar (which I bought, sold and bought once more). If not those two games, Multi would be a bit of a bore. Then again, it was hard to get Cube games where I live anyways, most stores were XBox/PS2-oriented.

    I'd love to see the series re-booted, it had... that little bit of comic relief other shooters "don't" have. I'm just worried that Cry would simply make another "Crisis" under a different name.

    It hasn't been confirmed yet, but given the success of the series- most notable being TS2 and seeing as how attached Crytek UK (formerly Free Radical) is to the series, it's quite safe to assume that TS4 will be brought back sooner or later.

    EDIT:
    I want moar Robofish.

    I hope they bring it back. The Timesplitters Series is the only FPS I really love.

    Never played any Timesplitters games, but if Crytek wants to bring this back, fine by me. Crytek is a fine developer IMHO.

    i do remember the ps2 version, TS3 was it? the multiplayer portion was probably the best thing (and the main reason i got it)

    TimeSplitters 2 was the best FPS of all time.

    I'd love to see a series revival, but I'd rather it stay dead than turn out like Duke Nukem and become Call of Duty with stage interaction.

    Considering that a lot of the original developers of the Timesplitters series are working for Crytek UK, it's less likely to be a complete mess.
    Personally, I'd be fine with a HD remake; It would give them an idea of how well TS4 would sell, and possible give them incentive to make it.

    But if they didn't know how, it'd be almost guaranteed that the game would be a complete mess that nobody would want to play (or at least be completely different/playing it too safe compared to the previous games)
