TimeSplitters Rewind in development for PlayStation 4

But Crytek controls whether or not it will see release.

TimeSplitters Rewind, a fan-made collection of maps, weapons, and characters from TimeSplitters, TimeSplitters 2, and TimeSplitters: Future Perfect, is in development for PlayStation 4, project lead Michael Hubricka told CinemaBlend.

While given permission from Crytek to be made for PC, the CryEngine 3-based project, in development by a team of around 35 part-time developers, has not yet been greenlit for release on PlayStation 4. But the game’s development team is working to obtain their approval.

“We’re actually going to go ahead and start development [of TimeSplitters Rewind] on PlayStation 4,” Hubricka said. “Just because we’re pretty confident Crytek’s going to say go ahead and do it. But we don’t want them saying go ahead and do it when we’re caught with our pants down and we’re like halfway through development and [then] start something for the PlayStation 4.

“So we decided that since they released the SDK to allow us to do this, we’re going to go ahead and do it ourselves, and when they say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ we can decide what to do with that. For now we’re just going to go ahead and do it. So at least we’re prepared.”

TimeSplitters Rewind is currently 20 percent complete. A playable alpha version is planned for release on PC this holiday season.
