If you've been a fan of the wacky FPS for a while now, then you've probably heard talk about a new HD remake collection of all the previous games, and now Crytek, the new developers of Timesplitters, have heard talk too, and they want to know how many people are interested in a new remake for the classic first person shooter.
Free Radical were the original developers of the Timesplitters series, but back in 2009 Crytek bought them out after the world had decided that they prefer more realistic games like Call of Duty or Battlefield 3, to the inane cartoony gameplay from the Timesplitters series.
However, CEO of Crytek, Cevat Yerli, has made a small statement about a possible future HD collection, but it's very much down to the player's input. Cevat has said, "There's a very hardcore market that is very verbal about it. I would love to see this, and if the fan base approves a further petition. They're trying to call 300,000 voices; I think it's at two or three thousand right now. If they could get the petition together I would be very happy to put in front of decision makers in the company, the key stakeholders, and say "Look here. This is how it is, let's make it now."
If the petition can reach 300,000 signers, it's very possible that we may be seeing an HD remake of the classic Timesplitters trilogy within the near future. If get's released you can expect our modded controllers for Xbox 360 or PS3 to both be fully compatible.
