After many rumours and speculation, first-person shooter TimeSplitters is officially returning, helmed by reformed Free Radical Design studio with a number of key original members of the team.
This has been announced by Deep Silver, who will publish the game. Check out their announcement below:
"You asked and we listened. We have been working on plans to bring the Timesplitters franchise back to life, and we are pleased to let you know that 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," Deep Silver announced.
The publisher also confirmed that the development of the new TimeSplitters title is yet to kick off so it's safe to say that it will take a while before we get the first trailer and details.
"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."
In case you are not familiar with TimeSplitters, the franchise is an FPS series that many compared to the iconic Golden Eye 007. Back in 2002, we got a sequel TimeSplitters 2, while the series' third instalment, TimeSplitters: Future Perfect was released in March 2005.
