TimeSplitters has been sat dormant for many years but Deep Silver is bringing the franchise back with a brand new studio.
Deep Silver has announced today that it has formed a new studio that will be tasked with bringing the Timesplitters franchise back to the gaming sphere.
The new studio boasts original members of Free Radical Design’s original TimeSplitters development team, such as Steve Ellis and David Doak, who have come together to reform Free Radical Design.
“It’s this unique style that earned the TimeSplitters series a large and passionate following who will, without doubt, be excited by the formation of Deep Silver’s latest studio and will look forward to learning more as the franchise moves forward,” said Paul Nicholls, Global Brand and Marketing Director at Deep Silver.
“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,” commented Steve Ellis, Studio Development Director at Free Radical Design. “While we cannot tell you anything more at the moment, we look forward to sharing information in the future.”
While this is great news for the famed franchise, the bad news is that we’re likely a few years away from getting the finished product into our hands. Development on a new game hasn’t even begun and the studio is still in the process of getting a full team put together.
