OXM: Sources have seen TimeSplitters 4 “running”

Future Perfect sequel may still not see light of day, says mag.

The Official Xbox Magazine claims that “trusted” sources have seen a working version of the much-wanted TimeSplitters 4 in its latest UK issue (via CVG).

It also said that a definite release for the sequel to 2005’s TimeSplitters: Future Perfect, which released on Xbox, PlayStation 2 and Gamecube, is still not guaranteed.

“Trusted OXM sources have claimed that they’ve seen TimeSplitters 4 running,” said the magazine.

“That’s no guarantee that it’ll be released – at least one version of Star Wars: Battlefront 3 was cancelled without ever being announced – but it’s a promising sign.”

Various rumors have hinted at the possibility of a fourth game, with developer Crytek UK, known formerly as Free Radical Design, having previously expressed interest in bringing a new iteration to market.

It has also been said that the game will be announced for next-generation platforms alongside the reveal of Xbox Next at this year’s E3. Microsoft has since refuted the latter.

Crytek UK, which is currently working on Homefront 2, also developed the multiplayer component for Crysis 2, released last year on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
