A New TimeSplitters is Coming Courtesy of a Reformed Free Radical Design
Announced just moments ago, publisher Deep Silver has revealed that a new TimeSplitters is officially in development. Part of this announcement is the reformation of Free Radical Design, which went defunct in 2014. Free Radical Design founders Steve Ellis and David Doak are returning to take part in the project. After being under publishers Eidos Interactive and EA, Deep Silver is taking the reigns for publishing this new title.
The TimeSplitters series is well known for having a humorous take on pop culture and historical moments. It’ll be great to see it return after 15 years since the last game, TimeSplitters: Future Perfect. The new studio is focusing on rebuilding in their Nottingham, England location. After the studio gains traction, they’ll commence development sometime within the next few months. Currently, there are no other details regarding the project.
“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,” says Paul Nicholls, Global Brand and Marketing Director at Deep Silver.
When speaking about the new opportunity, Free Radical Design Studio Development Director, Steve Ellis had this to say: “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. While we cannot tell you anything more at the moment, we look forward to sharing information in the future.”
