A while back, a petition was launched for TimeSplitters 4. The purpose of that petition was to show to Crytek that there was an interest for a new TimeSplitters game. Although the petition has not reached its initial goal of 300K signs, Crytek is willing to support a TimeSplitters game, created exclusively via CryEngine 3 as a mod.
The good news is that PC gamers will enjoy a shooter that was previously available only on consoles. The bad news – for console fans – is that the CryEngine 3 mod will most probably won’t hit their platforms, meaning that they’ll have to either get the PC version of Crysis 2 or 3 (provided the later supports mods and total conversions).
As said, Crytek will support this CryEngine 3 mod, and might let users use assets from the original game.
“I have just had word from Crytek that they are going to permit and support a TimeSplitters CryEngine mod. I am now looking for modders that can handle the CryEngine. If i manage to get a group together, then they may let us use assets from the original TimeSplitters game! so the idea is to build a TimeSplitters all-in-one. All the levels, all the characters and all the weapons.”
Let’s now hope that the guy behind the petition will be able to gather a group of modders!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
