    This isn't really Wii-related news, but since Timesplitters 4 was predicted to be a Wii release, I feel this deserved to be posted:

    Source

    All I can say is that this is probably the best news I've heard this year. Hopefully they resume work on Timesplitters 4. I was so distraught when they looked as if they were going down the drain. Thankfully, Crytek bought them (Developers of Crysis (PC)). Maybe they'll get some good technology from Crytek to use towards Timesplitters 4.

    I am very happy about this. :)

    Huh, didn't know it was confirmed it was developed for the Wii, but that's nice to hear. That means maybe they can pick up where they left off and finish the game. That'd be awesome.

    ^I have confidence that will happen since Crytek is a great FPS company.

    Oh yeah man. And maybe they can build it on the Crysis engine somehow. That'd be amazing.

    Aw man I'd love for this to mean Time Splitters 4 came out, for whatever console, I was really looking forward to it before Free Radicial went under..no other fps has such insane monkey action.

    Very true man. I mean you could be an undead, cyborg, or ninja monkey in Timesplitters Future Perfect. How awesome is that!?

    Man that was nothing, you could go a robot controlled by a goldfish, a snowman on a magic carpet, a giant duck and a gingerbread man...the game was just crazy.

    Plus Cortez was pretty damn funny in story mode.

    Haha yeah, the gingerbread man! :lol:

    Best character had to be that Sheriff Skullface. God those characters are amazing. Yeah, Cortez was a great main character. Decent story mode, but the real fun was multiplayer. Split-screen with friends is a blast.

    Another good new! I love Timesplitters 2, multiplayer is a blast!

    I wish Timesplitters 4 Wii will be also filled with option and customization and a solid online.

    :D

    Great, Crytek will push the Wii hardware to the limits with this game and of course Free Radical will learn a ton with this development.
    This open the gate for the first Crytek game on Wii since in 2006 Cervat Yerli promises it by 2010!!

    I don't think he ever said that, I Google'd around to find nothing. I believe stickmode is the "fanboy"-ish Wii lover that came to WiiChat a bit. So I won't be taking his word until something is confirmed.

    I'm gonna play Future Perfect in a bit. :)
