TimeSplitters woke up to some surprising good news today in the form of a social media post from Deep Silver. According to Deep Silver, Free Radical Design “is reforming” and will be headed by TimeSplitters veterans Steve Ellis and David Doak.
And if those name drops aren’t enough to convince you a new TimeSplitters game is coming, the post from Deep Silver goes on to specifically comment on the fact that development on a new game has not yet started, and that they’ll share an update when there’s more news to share.
“You asked and we listened. We have been working on plans to bring the TimeSplitters franchise back to life, and are pleased to let you know we are setting up a new Deep Silver development studio to do just that.
Free Radical Design is reforming and will be headed up by industry and TimeSplitters veterans Steve Ellis and David Doak. This is an exciting first step in the process; development on a new game has not yet started and we will update you when we have more news to share.”
Ever since Deep Silver acquired the rights to TimeSplitters back in 2018, there have been whispers and rumors about a new game. It’s nice to hear confirmation today that a new TimeSplitters game is coming, and that it’s being handled by Free Radical Design with Steve Ellis and David Doak at the helm.
We’re looking forward to seeing what’s in store for the TimeSplitters series once Deep Silver and Free Radical Design have more to announce. It could be a while before we hear anything as Free Radical Design needs time to build up its staff and studio in Nottingham.
The announcement from Deep Silver today primarily serves as reassurance to TimeSplitters fans that a new game is coming, no need for speculation anymore. It’s happening, and we don’t know about you, but we have a good feeling about what the final outcome will look like.
We’re looking forward to hearing more once Deep Silver and Free Radical Games have more to share. Until then, what are your thoughts on the confirmation that a new TimeSplitters game is coming courtesy of developer Free Radical Games?
Are you looking forward to seeing where they take the TimeSplitters series, or are you waiting until more is announced before getting excited?
