    Great news for those 40+ peeps. Anyone know what IP, if any FRD still has.

    According to ‘sources’ they still own Timesplitters and half of Haze (the other half being owned by Ubisoft). And Second Sight, which is absolutely what they should do a sequel to next. Hint hint. :-D

    Mmmmm, Crytek powered Second Sight. I hope the Timesplitters artists and animators are still there too although I wouldn’t be surprised if Doak pinched them already.
