Many fans, upon hearing the news, posed the question on how the plot would continue after Cortez defeated the TimeSplitters at the end of TimeSplitters: Future Perfect. Some speculated that TimeSplitters 4 will have no story mode, while others were left to imagine their own scenarios.
On 20/8/07, N4G.com had a video interview with David Doak, who commented that TS4 will be "A game that is pure gameplay." This suggests, like some fans speculated, that TS4 will not have a story mode. It may also suggest a reversion back to the TimeSplitters 2 "gameplay-driven" story with a minimal story.
