Crytek boss Cervat Yerli has told CVG that the company is “discussing” the possibility of developing TimeSplitters 4.

“Yeah, we have been discussing it, but nothing has been confirmed yet, so let’s see after Crysis 2,” he said.

Crytek bought out original developer Free Radical in 2009 after it went into administration. But Yerli says he is “very confident” about the team, rebranded Crytek UK, helping to push Crysis 2, which it has developed on the multiplayer side, into a Meta 90.

“I love working with our UK friends,” Yerli said. “The team has been performing up to the quality bar easily. Our thinking was that the team had done 80-85 rated games, and we thought that with the right technology, IP and global IP direction they could reach the 90 barrier. I’m very confident that they can do that.”

The last heard on a possibile TS4 was when Crytek UK boss Karl Hilton said last year that it was “talking to publishers” about it.
