Crytek has released an official response regarding the Timesplitters 4 rumour in the latest issue of OXM.
According to the magazine, sources close to it had seen the game in action, however according to Crytek’s response, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
“For Timesplitters 4, with ever spiralling development costs, massive teams and endless crunch we decided on a more radical development strategy.
“In short, the experiment was to implement the infinite monkey theorem. With cloning being a far too expensive option, we spent all of the development budget on buying monkeys on the black market.
“Those seven monkeys are now sat in a room with typewriters and lots of mirrors, and we fully expect Timesplitters 4 to be finished soon. Rumours are that they haven’t written any code but just tease the press from time to time. Those damn monkeys.
“PS: anyone got any bananas?
Crytek carried this on by telling CVG that Timesplitters 4 is NOT in development.
