Crytek co-founder Avni Yerli has said the company is “thinking about” how and where to bring back TimeSplitters, but insists there’s “no concrete plans” in place as yet.

“Obviously Timesplitters, historically, was for [Free Radical/Crytek UK] an important IP,” Yerli told NowGamer.

“From our perspective we always had a lot of fun playing Timesplitters – Timesplitters 2 was amazing fun. Crytek and Crytek UK are interested in the IP; we are thinking about it but we’re trying to decide what we could do best with the IP, where we could bring it. There are no concrete plans yet.”

In terms of releasing a HD collection of sorts, it hasn’t “thought about that,” but that it was a “good idea.”

It was rumoured a couple of weeks ago that Crytek was developing TimeSplitters 4 for the next Microsoft console.

Avni had also said that a reveal of Crytek UK’s next game would come either at or just after E3.
