Eidos had a press release today:

"following a review of the commercial arrangements for the TimeSplitters franchise, for which the IP is wholly-owned by the external development studio, Free Radical Design, Eidos has decided not to pursue its option to develop a TimeSplitters 3 game."

Let's hope FR eventually goes ahead with it ... or uses the IP for another franchise.

And Free Radical's next game is said to be Second Sight.

Guess we have longer to wait :(

According to the Computer & Video Games (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/news/news_story.php?id=96006) website (might have to register/sign in), if FRD did make another TimeSplitters Game, it could be published by someone other than Eidos (seeing as FRD does wholly own the TimeSplitters franchise). Keep yer fingers and toes crossed for a threequal.

My day was going smooth up until I read that ****. I hope Free Radical teams up with someone else to put out another sequel. Just hopefuly not a company that's only Xbox, or only Gamecube, but only PS2 would be ok.

How can you stand their and make yourself believe their wont be another timesplitters out. To be honest you cant like the game that much if you say there wont be a next one.

I agree with Captain Snow even if it doesnt come out I hope it doesnt stick to being on one console.

Everyone has been saying there won't be another TimeSplitters from Eidos, not that there won't be another at all.

But a new Timesplitters, with new options, new multiplayer, and more stuff, can make TS3 the best game ever, i mean, ts2 the 2002 best game of the year, i hope they will make a new TS, im not bored with TS2, but more options to play with my friends would be great.

i think they need to get Bungie(made halo) on TS3. god, that would ****in own!

No it wouldn't and that would probably be one of the silliest things for them to do!

Sure Halo was good but its not TS and they would probably make it more like Halo than TS.

I'd prefer it if they kept Free-Rad to work on it infact I DEMAND it :rolleyes: lol otherwise it won't have the same feel to it.


i hope they will make a new TS,

Like we said allready, there are no plans to cancel TS3, it'll just have to be published by someone else (Activison by the looks of it) which means we'll probably be moving hom from this forum to the new developers :eek:

I don't think they're big enough to simultaneously be working on TS3. Even if I'm wrong, I highly doubt that it will be ready for 2004. I forcast TS3 for next gen.

dude, i just think it would own because bungie knows how to make a weapon feel like a ****ing weapon. i mean take the sniper. sure the timesplitters one is umm...well actually no it blows. put in halo's sniper and youre set. and what about the rocket launcher. if they put ts's speed with halo's power, holy shyt. you know it would own. but one thing ts has that halo doesnt is the whole machine gun thing. look at that spb90x2 blazin. lmfao


also i didnt want this cus of story, i really dont care about that nearly as much as multiplayer.

and ts should have hand grenades. :)

What is the deal with everyone wanting TS to be like Halo?!? Halo is it's own game, TS is it's own game. I guess I could understand if you didn't have an Xbox (like me) but just buy Halo for the PC. I love the whole style of TS how it is, and I hope it doesn't change, just improves (not a Halo improvment either).

NO TS3 NEVER

it says on the credits ts will return and my freinds seems to belive his ps2 magizine for this month accaly says there will be another one so i dont know..
quoting from frd.co.uk (peopel who make ts) althoug it says last updated may..

At the end of TimeSplitters 2 it says 'TimeSplitters will return...'. Does this mean there will be a TimeSplitters 3?

We'll see!

According to OSPM, Free Rad are in fact making TS3.. But Eidos aren't publishing it.. :(
My guess?? Next Gen console launch title.. ;)
But who knows? We'll just have to wait and see..

Sure, if you want TS3 to be XBox exclusive! You DO realise that Microsoft owns Bungie? Considering that, do you really think that MS would make a game for PS2? I think not. :p

In my opinino FRD have already started on TS3. FRD will have TS3 up and running by 2005 i reckon if not then they will keep it fo the ps3 which is sed to be out in 2005. if not then it will be out by 2004 mayb even scince that will 2 years scince TS2 came out and teh same happenined for ts1 soo lets hope this happens.

If you can, pick up the latest Official PS2 mag for a playable demo of TSFP, or you can also visit the boards that most of us have migrated to: timesplitters3.net! We have saved up loads of info, screens, and are aiming to be the biggest unofficial community for this game. The last release date for it that I heard is March 24th this year. My copy's already reserved, see you online! ;) :D

*loads up rocket launcher and aims for a crowd of calimari* :cool:
