Thanks to the blessing of Crytek as well as the ingenuity and follow-through of their extremely passionate fanbase, the following TimeSplitters Fan Remake titled ‘TimeSplitters Rewind’ has been approved for release as a free-to-play Indie PlayStation 4 game (it will also release on PC and feature cross-platform multiplayer). Pantheonyx is the name of the development team behind this, and you can even catch some extremely early build footage in the High Definition video embedded below, but be sure to heed the reading that has been released alongside it by those who are working on the game right now.
Those of us who fell in love with the classic series since its PlayStation 2 debut will be happy to finally see something release using this IP. Many believe Crytek will allow this release to serve as a test of the demand for the TimeSplitters IP and to re-ignite the flame for a potential official fourth release in the series.
“THIS BUILD IS FROM 2.5 – 3 MONTHS INTO DEVELOPMENT. THIS IS NOWHERE NEAR WHERE WE ARE CURRENTLY AT IN DEVELOPMENT. THIS IS PRE-ALPHA FOOTAGE. MOST OF THE GAMEPLAY ISN’T EVEN IMPLEMENTED IN THIS BUILD.
With that being said – this is part 1 of 3. In this video I talk about why we haven’t really updated the community with anything. In short if you don’t want to listen to me rant for 10 minutes – we are perfectionists. We don’t want to release something we know isn’t finished yet and is prone to significant changes.
Part 2 will feature an update regarding the PlayStation 4 release and some discussion on TSR functionality.
Part 3 will talk about donations and we will go into detail as to what it’s being applied to and what fans who donate get in return for their generosity. There might be some additional updates along the way during Part 2 and Part 3 that are unplanned updates, but I hope you enjoy them.
Thank you all so much for everything you do!
