FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Miraculously, Timesplitters 4 A Possibility!

Posted on Friday, January 28 @ 18:30:00 Eastern by
Funniest-Name-of-the-Year award winner and Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli recently spoke with CVG on the topic of Crysis 2, the sequel to the PC-brain-boiling Crysis. Of course, Crysis 2 will be appearing on consoles, and that means multiplayer!

You've already played the Crysis 2 multiplayer demo, or at least I showed you what it's all about, but just how much work went into the multiplayer side of the game? Cevat commented on that:

Today we have around 70 plus team members working on multiplayer only. That's a huge commitment from our company and was only possible because Free Radical had that capacity and was able to grow quite fast after we took over.

Free Radical, you say? You might remember them as the developers behind Timesplitters: Future Perfect. If you remember them for that, you're dumb. You should remember them for Timesplitters 2, a true PS2-era successor to Goldeneye and Perfect Dark.

You know, it's no coincidence that the Timesplitters series seems familiar to those who dedicated hours and hours to those great Nintendo 64 shooters. Free Radical was originally comprised of developers from Rare who broke off after the company was sold to Microsoft. Just think, they could be developing avatar props right now!

(Pictured: Timesplitters rising back from the grave.)

Free Radical is now named Crytek UK (who would've guessed?). Cevat seems pleased with their work:

The team has been performing up to the quality bar easily. Our thinking was that the team had done 80-85 rated games, and we thought that with the right technology, IP and global IP direction they could reach the 90 barrier. I'm very confident that they can do that.

When asked about the Timesplitters series, which Crytek now owns, Yerli simply said:

Yeah, we have been discussing it, but nothing has been confirmed yet, so let's see after Crysis 2.

Hope.
