Timesplitters er et af mine favorit spil fra GameCube tiden. Oprindelig var det Free Radical Design som blev til Crytek UK Ltd og til sidst Deep Silver Dambuster der havde rettighederne. Der bliver i pressemeddelelsen antydet at det kan betyde en ny udgivelse. En stort del af charmen ved Timespiltters var humoren, referencer til pop kultur og masser af tilpasninger. Og så aber.
“We are hugely excited to have acquired Timesplitters” commented Klemens Kundratitz, CEO Koch Media GmbH “The original games gave fans a massive content offer and provided a pure and genuinely fun arcade shooter experience. We have many fans of the Timesplitters series among our own staff who are passionate about creating a product that will thrill todays gaming audience.”
In addition to Timesplitters, Koch Media have also acquired the IP and the rights to science fiction action-adventure game Second Sight. Also conceived by Free Radical Design, Second Sight was originally released in 2004 and follows the adventures of an American parapsychology researcher who undertakes missions alongside a band of U.S Marines using a mix of gun combat and stealth gameplay. Forthcoming Second Site products will also be published by Deep Silver.
Full details of future Timesplitters and Second Sight products will be revealed in due course.
