Possibly, but they did sell the studio that made the games to Deep Silver, just dunno if any IP (other than Homefront) went with it.

I don't know if they sold the IP to them.

Neither do I. I sure hope they did though since Crytek just left it unused for the entire time they had it! I'd love to see it change hands again since if it did the new owners might actually decide to get some use out of it.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I know the new Homefront has a TS2 easter egg.

Ah yeah, I remember that. I remember thinking maybe it was a prelude to a full HD remaster announcement. But nope, nothing more came of it

Buy the IP and make a remaster for Switch, XBO, PS4 and PC. DO IT KAPI

Well, Homefront bombing probably didn't help.



Why play a rerelease if you can play the original

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Yeah that was a really cool touch. At one point I was playing Anaconda inside TimeSplitters 2 inside Homefront: Revolution  



Crytek still holds the rights to it and they do not seem particularly interested in the franchise.
TimeSplitters Rewind is the best bet for a "new" TimeSplitters game going forward, which essentially is just a collection of the first three games multiplayer maps and modes and if possible the story campaigns as well.
That is if the damn thing ever comes out lol

The original studio behind TimeSplitters is still fairly intact, now known as Dambuster studios.
It likely doesn't consist of every member from the original Free Radical Design/Crytek UK team, but my understanding of it is that a lot of the developers went there

Ok!

Can I borrow some money to do that though?
