TimeSplitters 4 is “not in development,” says Crytek

Friday, 27th April 2012 14:20 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Crytek UK has said TimeSplitters 4 is not in development, nixing fresh rumors from earlier in the week.

In a statement handed to CVG, with tounge firmly in cheek, the firm has this to say on the matter:

“For Timesplitters 4, with ever spiralling development costs, massive teams and endless crunch we decided on a more radical development strategy.

“In short, the experiment was to implement the infinite monkey theorem. With cloning being a far too expensive option, we spent all of the development budget on buying monkeys on the black market.

“Those seven monkeys are now sat in a room with typewriters and lots of mirrors, and we fully expect Timesplitters 4 to be finished soon. Rumours are that they haven’t written any code but just tease the press from time to time. Those damn monkeys.

“PS: anyone got any bananas?”

Earlier this week, sources close to OXM UK told the magazine it had seen TimeSplitters 4 in action.

The game has been running around the rumor mill since Crytek acquired Free Radical in 2008.

    That’s a way to take that comment, it could be done. I doubt Crytek would spoil a potential surprise, for whenever that would be planned, by just admitting to it now.
