Crytek now owns all of the rights to Free Radical projects including TimeSplitters, says 1UP.

Free Radical was at work on the shooter franchise when they were bought out, but this doesn’t mean another TimeSplitters game is a given, says managing director Anvi Yerli.

“At this early stage we’re looking into all possibilities, but it’s just too early to say,” he said.

Nor is the company’s internal focus “linked to bringing Crysis to consoles”.

With the merge, the firm has been renamed Crytek UK and plans to rehire some of the 185 staff laid off in December.

Nicely done there.
