Timesplitters 4: teaser suggests the arrival of news, sooner or later

Timesplitters 4

Timesplitter fans have been waiting for a new game for years now. Now, it looks like something is moving, or so players hope following what looks like a THQ Nordic and Deep Silver teaser. It all started with a question from a player on Twitter.

As you can see below, a user has asked for new information about a new Timesplitters game, tagging both Deep Silver and THQ Nordic. The latter supported the player by tagging Deep Silver in turn. The company replied with a "We have no news to share right now", which was followed by the classic quote "So you're telling me there's a possibility" from Dumb & Dumber.

We remind you that THQ Nordic is the owner of the franchise and that Deep Silver is part of the same company as THQ (Embracer Group). This exchange certainly cannot be accidental. That said, for the moment the official line is that there is no information to share. However, it is possible that the situation will change at some point. Timesplitters 4 has never seen the light of day and a new version of it would certainly be very welcome by fans.

More credible, however, that THQ Nordic is betting on a remaster or remake of an old chapter, less expensive to produce. Last year it was suggested the arrival of a remake of TimeSplitters 2, with a strange easter egg in SpellForce 3 Fallen God: sadly, the company later confirmed that it was just a fun reference and nothing more. In the meantime, however, things may have changed.

We hope THQ Nordic and Deep Silver will clarify as soon as possible. In the meantime, please note that Timesplitters 2 is fully playable in Homefront: The Revolution: The Code.

TimeSplitters 4 Possibly Teased

TimeSplitters fans have been waiting a very long time for new information about the series, and it seems that THQ Nordic and Deep Silver might have something to reveal soon. On Twitter, a fan tagged the two companies, asking for new information. THQ Nordic backed up the question, but the result was a stock answer from Deep Silver. THQ Nordic pressed further with a classic Lloyd Christmas line from Dumb and Dumber: 'so you're telling me there's a chance.' As the owner of the franchise, THQ Nordic is likely well aware of the status of the next TimeSplitters game, and probably wouldn't post like this if there was nothing new to report.

Part of the exchange between THQ Nordic and Deep Silver can be found embedded below.

Obviously, this isn't the update fans have been looking for, but THQ Nordic's persistence in this exchange seems pretty promising. Obviously, the publisher is planning something for the series, or it wouldn't have purchased the rights back in 2018. Late last year, the company seemingly teased a TimeSplitters 2 remake with a strange easter egg in SpellForce 3: Fallen God. Unfortunately, the publisher later came forward to reveal that it was all meant in fun, and it had nothing to announce for the series at that point. Despite this, a TimeSplitters 2 remake would probably be the most logical move for THQ Nordic and Deep Silver to gauge interest in a wholly new series entry.

Of course, fans would be happier to see an entirely new game announced, such as TimeSplitters 4. Right now, it's hard to say what the future might hold for the FPS series. Koch Media (Deep Silver's parent company) is set to appear at the digital E3 2021 event set to take place June 12th through June 15th. The show would be the perfect place for a new TimeSplitters game to be officially announced. It's been more than 15 years since the release of TimeSplitters: Future Perfect. Hopefully fans will finally have something new to look forward to soon!
