It has been 13 years since the last Timesplitters game hit the market, and now, finally, we know for sure the franchise will live again. Free Radical Design's last attempt, Timesplitters Future Perfect, and all its predecessors are fondly remembered (and played) today, and the acquisition of the IP is certainly exciting news.
Timesplitters has been acquired by Koch Media, in turn, owned by THQ Nordic, who will take control of both the IP and the rights to make Timesplitters video games. The latter being the most exciting part: Koch Media's own Deep Silver will be publishing future Timesplitters games.
From the press release:
"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 today's gaming audience."
Timesplitters is a classic FPS, and as the name hints, involves an element of time travel. As yet there are no details on any new releases from the franchise, but the fact there will be any at all is enough to whet our appetites.
In addition to Timesplitters, Koch Media has also acquired the rights to Second Sight, with the intention of also publishing new releases.
