    Cevat Yerli said that, although Crytek isn't currently working on the highly acclaimed shooter series, he personally wishes the company would, although a retail release is out of the question.

    "Look, I wish we were working on it. I will say that," he told CVG in Los Angeles last week.


    "I think hopes are high, but change has to happen in the platform space. I'm very excited potentially about the idea of a TimeSplitters for G-Face.


    "The thing with TimeSplitters is, if we made a sequel to TimeSplitters, nobody would accept this apart from some fans, and we don't know how big the fan community is unfortunately.

    "And we don't want to design this as a packaged goods game that launches on a console, and even if we wanted to I don't think publishers would like the idea. That is the truth, and that was the truth even before we bought Free Radical."


    Crytek acquired Free Radical, the Nottingham based developer of TimeSplitters, in February 2009. Since then the company has faced persistent requests to return to the franchise.

    Former Free Radical MD Steve Ellis previously said he shopped around the idea of TimeSplitters 4 to publishers and "nobody was interested" - a fact Yerli backed up.


    "The concept behind TimeSplitters was pitched around before we took over and Free Radical had no luck. We think even on CryEngine and with Crytek behind it there would be fundamental issues with the concept," he said.
    "However, TimeSplitters had one of the most fun multiplayer games ever, and G-Face is a social entertainment platform - it's about online gaming. I love the idea of a TimeSplitters for G-Face.
    "I love the idea, and I wish we'll work on it, but currently we are not working on it."


    One potential avenue for getting the game off the ground is the crowdfund platform Kickstarter, but Yerli expressed concerns over whether it would be appropriate for such a large company to call on fan funding.
    "I've been asked this question internally and I said, 'how can we do a kickstarter? It wouldn't feel right.' I suppose if someone really, really wanted to...

    "I guess the other issue is this; the reality also is we're quite a large company, but also we have capacity limits and we don't want to hire 15 people just to do this game. Kickstarter is a concept we thought about seriously... we'll see. Time will tell."
    Several Reddit threads demonstrating interest made it to the front page. I sent Cevat an email regarding that (he initially assumed it was an internal company email, heh). He later said that since the recent demand/interest is to "fragmented" across the internet, he wants people to Tweet him so he can "easily gauge it" He made a Twitter post below

    @RealtimeCevat

    so yeah, tweet him or something.

    I really couldn't give a fuck.

    I require a sequel like nothing else.
    As long as they don't try to change it into another game, I don't care what they do with it honestly.

    I don't have twitter, and I'm guessing a lot of other TS fans don't either.But I really want for this game to finally see the light of day, especially in this climate of genera military shooters, the satire on them in a future TS would be really funny.

    Basically concluding from what he said, he wants one but doesn't want the flak for it considering they have military contracts and own about a dozen studios globally, so he's hinting for the fans to do it. I personally wouldn't mind if they did it despite how rich they may be. The purpose is really to alleviate the costs since they seem to be so concerned it'd fail, also nothing else would grab publishers' interests more than fans funding the game itself.

    Kickstarter seems to be the absolute perfect solution, everybody wins. It would without a doubt be funded.
    It may even start a trend, which could be awesome.

    If the release it on Origin, I'd rather play it on my Playstation 2 like I've played every other timesplitters game.

    But didn't they say that excluding all of their currently announced projects, all new games made from Crytek will be Free 2 Play. Which means that Timesplitters 4 will be F2P?!

    It may even start a trend, which could be awesome.
    In case you've been living under a rock, there already is a trend with kickstarter, to the point where its getting lots of flak. Aka, people who should not be doing kickstarters are starting them due to Double Fine's success - such as Carmageddon creators, who already have some funding but used Kickstarter to get some more - as beeing seen as an abuse by the system. Not to mention Numerous people putting up bogus Kickstarters to get money during "Kickstarter fever". And we're not even talking about the over-saturation of Kickstarter projects on the board - everyone is starting one for every kind of project you can imagine, making people who have already invested into several kickstarter projects to start being burned out. And we've not yet seen any results from Kickstarter either - once "funded" kickstarter projects start failing or running out of money, we're gonna see a LOT of resentment against crowdsource funding and the name "Kickstarter".

    Granted if a company like Crytek did it, with a name like Timesplitters, it would probably go well, but it's kind of a moral grey area, considering Kickstarter is supposed to be used to FUND projects that otherwise can't get funding. Timesplitters 4 can easily get funding under Crytek and their publisher, the problem is they just don't trust the waters enough.

    I doubt TS4 would be FTP, i think they would atleast have the brains to sell it retail.

    Saying that, it took them this long and they still do not know how much of a TS fanbase there is.

    There should be a compromise, fans give cash via Kickstarted BUT for that, the game shouldn't be Origin only.

    How does going retail show you have "brains" when the F2P model has been hugely successful.

    You have a good point, i wouldn't actually mind buying some characters and maps every now and then certainly!

    We need to get this to a site like gamespot, RPS, destructoid or IGN. The numbers of people replying right now is immense but it'd be great to smash it.
