Timesplitters has a new owner and that can mean only one thing...
The classic time-twisting FPS series, Timesplitters, has been snapped up by Kock Media and plans are now afoot for a return to that universe.
In the early noughties, Timesplitters picked up a reputation and cult following thanks to its innovative gameplay so news that we could be seeing more Timesplitters games is sure to excite fans.
“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.”
While we don't know what is next for the franchise, there's always the possibility of a modern remaster of the original games and obviously a new sequel for the current or next generation of consoles.
Along with the rights to Timesplitters, Koch Media have also acquired stealth shooter Second Sight and we can expect further games in that series too.
