There’s been a ton of TimeSplitters 4 talk of late, with OXM even claiming that a source close to the mag has seen the game up and running. Fast forward to the last hour and Crytek has decided to completely ruin your day by confirming that not only are these rumours “B.S” but the game isn’t even in development.
In a reply to a TS4 question from CVG, Crytek UK responded with the following tongue in cheek response. Ouch and LOL.
“For Timesplitters 4, with ever spiralling development costs, massive teams and endless crunch we decided on a more radical development strategy.
“In short, the experiment was to implement the infinite monkey theorem. With cloning being a far too expensive option, we spent all of the development budget on buying monkeys on the black market.
“Those seven monkeys are now sat in a room with typewriters and lots of mirrors, and we fully expect Timesplitters 4 to be finished soon. Rumours are that they haven’t written any code but just tease the press from time to time. Those damn monkeys.
“PS: anyone got any bananas?”
That as they say, is that.
