New “TimeSplitters” Game Coming from Original Developers
Publisher Deep Silver recently announced the reformation of Free Radical Design, the studio responsible for the TimeSplitters series, and that development of a new installment in the TimeSplitters franchise will begin “in the coming months.”
Based in Nottingham, England, this new incarnation of Free Radical Design includes multiple members of the original team, including FRD founders Steve Ellis and David Doak. According to Ellis:
“To finally be able to confirm that the studio has been formed and that we have a plan for the next TimeSplitters game is incredible. While we cannot tell you anything more at the moment, we look forward to sharing information in the future.”
Here is an overview of the TimeSplitters series from Deep Silver:
The highly regarded Free Radical Design team has a twenty-two year heritage under various guises and is responsible for some of the best loved, most iconic video games of the early 2000s, including TimeSplitters—the first title it released in 2000. The critically acclaimed TimeSplitters series went on to include two further iterations, all of which were loaded with humorous pop culture references as players battle across various locations and historical periods.
