Yerli: New Crytek UK game announce at E3 likely

Tuesday, 15th March 2011 12:24 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Crytek CEO Avni Yerli has said that its UK arm is aiming to announce its new project at E3 this summer.

Speaking to Develop, Yerli said it had “ambitious plans” for the TimeSplitter developer that was once known as Free Radical.

“I think at E3 this year – or just after – we are going to make a big announcement that I think people will be happy about,” he said.

“They were very pleased with their contribution to Crysis 2 [Note: Crytek UK made the multiplayer component - JC], and we have very ambitious plans for Crytek UK. The studio is now up to 85 people, with nice new offices. The main thing is that the team are having a lot of fun – that’s the most important thing to us.”

Yerli added the “UK scene” would be “very pleased” with what Crytek UK was working on.

Crytek UK has said in the past it’ll start work on either a new IP or TimeSplitters 4, a project the studio worked on previously as Free Radical.

Fellow Yerli, Cervat, had said in the past that Crytek and Crytek UK were discussing TS4′s development.

E3 takes place on the week of June 6 in Los Angeles.

    Seeing as “people will be happy” it’ll probably be a sequel. And if it’s a sequel from what was once Free Radical its not hard to guess what its going to be a sequel to…

    Well as long as they don’t go all serious, keep the monkeys, the diversity & the insane amount of fun, they can’t go wrong.

    Diversity is key here, survival, infection, team ‘bags’, capture the ‘bag’, elimination, 50+ unlockable characters, challenging arcade modes (support for co-op next time!), all of this is what made the second a perfect game, although the campaign could have been better.

    Just upgrade the graphics (keep cartooney style), add in online multiplayer/co-op, add even more arcade challenges & more MP modes & you have me a day one buyer, a good campaign would be good this time around though.

    You hit the nail on the head there mate.

    Timesplitters for me has always been about diversity, humour and sheer fun.

    I did too! Not sure if I preferred it over Psi-Ops though.

    But meh, that’s just my personal preference; I know plenty of folks who lean towards the contrary.

    I think Valve would be good developer for it, but they will never pay for the rights for it.

    Source Graphics would suit Timesplitters look.
