    'Very ambitious plans' for the Free Radicals

    Nottingham studio Crytek UK will likely announce its new project at E3 this year, a key executive at the company has said.

    Amid widespread rumours the British group is resurrecting the TimeSplitters IP, Crytek co-founder Avni Yerli told Develop, “I think the gaming scene and the UK scene are going to be very pleased with the new project they’re working on”.

    Crytek rescued the UK studio from insolvency back in 2008, when the cash-strapped developer worked under the Free Radical name.

    Since that buyout, Crytek UK has remained independent in spirit, Yerli said in his interview with Develop.

    “The way the studio is set up means we don’t have to tell them what to do – the thinking is more about what we can do to help them get on with their own work.

    I seem to recall hearing Crytek working on a game a long time ago, but I'm not sure...

    They've been hinting that they'd be doing TimeSplitters 4 since December, it seems like. I'll be very surprised if it's not that or at least some ports. Dunno if I want a TS game using the CryEngine, though.

    Sounds awesome. Better be on PC, though.
