Future Perfect is an underrated gem of an FPS, had so many different era in one single FPS campaign experience. You've got zombie shoot outs, haunted mansion missions, destroying robots and fighting soldiers in a world war period. If they were to remake the game with the RE engine, some kind of a special team up between Capcom and Time Splitters creators?

I'd settle for a Remaster of TS2 (and 3... sure, why not?) with old school custom lobbies, splitscreen, system link/ad hoc (just for the hell of it) and old friends from '02. BUT I didn't realize this was property handled by Thordic sooo... like get a different Pub/dev while were at it.

fucking

gimme a PC port of 2 and/or FP with online multiplayer or something and I'm happy

I don't need Timesplitters 4 cause I'm sure it wouldn't be any good, but I do want to play the old ones again. With a mouse and against other players, if possible.

Here's my prediction Gamescom TimeSplitters HD collection and next year E3 Time Splitter sequel. Yeah, I know I'm dreaming.

I bet on anything TS releasing next year in 2020. After all it will be the series 20th anniversary, so an HD collection would be perfect!

Man...has it already been 20 years. D:

Exciting! TS2 (and PS2 version of Half-Life) taught me how to play FPS games on console, so it has a special place in my heart.

Hoping we get a sequel and remasters as others have already said.

Look THQ, bring out a HD collection and I'll forget that time you were really fucking stupid and did an AMA on a white supremacist forum that was blocked by Google for hosting child pornography.

the game has a multi-player character called Susie J W who has glasses and blue hair and is unpleasant, Pepe is a playable character, and all the money the game makes goes toward supporting white nationalist terrorists and pedophiles

Would buy a remaster day one for PC. Future Perfect is one of my all time favorite shooters and the thought of playing it with way better controls sounds amazing.

Can he also help the people in charge at THQ chart the course of the fuckers who did the 8chan AMA out of the company so I can be excited about one of my favorite franchises again?

Friendly reminder that THQ held an AMA on 8chan (now defunct website known for being delisted off Google because of all the child abuse material), and at least one THQ executive felt perfectly comfortable responding to posts that contained drawn underage girls being groped and homophobic slurs~

I've wanted a new Time Splitters since Kotaku posted all that Time Splitters 4 concept art like 10 years ago.

Whether it be an HD Remaster of the trilogy or a new game - I'm there Day -1

IT'S TIME TO SPLIT!

I'd just want virus with max player count, all bots Snowman. The real OST. Won't be buying the game as at this stage shit is entrenched but I wish some game would emulate the hilarity that was TS multiplayer.

So many times as kids me and a friend would split our sides laughing at the dumb shit we could do.

“Personally I always saw TimeSplitters as ‘unfinished business’,” said Ellis. “It was a series that was ahead of its time, from the days when shooters were all brown and games weren’t online.

“It feels like it’s time has now come, so the opportunity to work on it was hard to ignore.”
Series composer Graeme Norgate told VGC in a separate comment: “I’m really happy it’s finally got off the ground, 14 years since the last release. Let’s hope Steve decides to get the old band back together!”
