OPM is claiming the rumor that TS4 is going to be announced soon. Obviously 'grain of salt' material. But rumors are all over the place about former Free Radical, now CRYTEK UK's silly, gun-wielding monkey FPS. I for one am a HUGE fan of the TS series (mainly because the multiplayer was fantastic along with an awesome map editor). Wasn't there a rumor that TS4 was being planned for next-gen systems?
“Gun-wielding monkeys are finally making a comeback! A fourth Timesplitters title is to be announced soon,” reads the magazine.
As a note, Crytek UK's project was supposed to be unveiled at or just after E3.

Are you giving Crytek UK the space to do their own work now, or will they be used for more collaboration?
The way the studio is set up means we don’t have to tell them what to do – the thinking is more about what we [Crytek management] can do to help them get on with their own work. We come to mutual conclusions on projects, and I think at E3 this year – or just after – we are going to make a big announcement that I think people will be happy about. I think the gaming scene and the UK scene are going to be very pleased with the new project they’re working on.
