It would be nice if they did something with it, but probably never.
What are they gona do with it? Make a boring campaign that is fancy on the technical side but ugly on the art side and that has a cod clone multiplayer mode with awful netcode?
Idk why you'd want crytek to touch timesplitters if you were a fan of the series.

The big question is how much talent Crytek UK/Dambuster lost during those months of late/no wages. I would expect Dambuster to be made up of largely junior talent these days. I could be wrong, but it's not like veteran developers don't have options if they're left unpaid.

I know someone going to work on it at Dambuster in a few weeks time, so yes.

Nah, while quite a few people left, quite a few also stayed. Another friend of mine who was one of the ones that jumped ship said to me the other day that the many of core team still remaining at Dambuster are "some of the best people [he's] ever worked with".

Why did Crytek buy the IP from THQ in the first place?
No idea. Because then they made it a completely different game. It was originally a mainly MP Series. Since it was the Spiritual Successor to Frontlines which was a Spiritual Successor of a Battlefield Mod.

They were already making the game for THQ game when THQ went down, it was a mean to salvage the project I imagine.

I hope the game still sees the light of day. The original was mediocre but it had potential for future installments. I would like to see where this title goes.

Homefront: The Revolution is still in development, now under our wing at Dambuster Studios (formerly Crytek UK).

Sometimes we get questions from fans if it's going to be another Prey 2 or Duke Nukem Forever. But rest assured that the team at Dambuster is still working hard on the game and it's not going to be vaporware :)
I might be slightly biased, but I can't wait for it- I am sure it will rock :)

Sounds a bit like Freedom Fighters: Open-world, Sci-fi Edition.

Glad to hear things are still chugging along.

It's a single player open world shooter with drop in/drop out coop. Less Cod more Far Cry 3/4. It looks fun.
I am open to this. Was intrigued by Homefront's story, but I wasn't about to drop $ on a short campaign. By the time it dropped, I heard the multi was drying up too, though it was supposed to be fun.

If be willing to play a Far Cry style shooter set in the US though. Nice change up.

I watched the gameplay, somehow I never watched it during E3, and it was pretty awesome. Love how they integrated the Crysis weapon modifications and improved it even more.

I suppose it's still using CryEngine, right? It would be a pretty big change if they had to change the engine so far ahead.

Still Cryengine.

it was one of the most interesting games at E3 2014, hopefully it won't be similar to its predecessor

I know I'm bumping this up, but I don't wanna make a new thread on something that's similar to this topic. But I'm surprised this wasn't talked at all, or shown off during E3. I'm really interested in what this game might end up being. Anybody else curious about this game?

Wouldn't be surprised if the project was rebooted when deep silver took over.

I thought much of the point of taking over that project was that you got a half-finished project. It's not that the Homefront name is that valuable. But who knows.

People should stop referencing data that makes me feel uncomfortable because games get ported to platforms I don't like

On about crytek and time splitters, whats the crack with that facebook remaster? It looks great but is it official? I read there hoping to bring it too ps4 as well..
TimeSplitters Rewind is in a development by a an indie studio NOT contracted by Crytek BUT they have Crytek's permission to publish TimeSplitters Rewind on PC/PS4.

The goals for the game are as follow:

-Release TimeSplitters Rewind whenever possible......(They are not working on the game full time and it's pretty much a side project they work on their free time last time I checked)

-TimeSplitters Rewind will only be a Multiplayer Game Only on Release with Classics Maps,Modes,Weapons,and Characters.

-More Multiplayer Content will be made and released after they launch TimeSplitters Rewind

-The Long term goal is to Remaster the Story Mode from all 3 games.

I remember this game. It sounded like Crytek was going back to their roots with Crysis 1's sandbox gameplay. I look forward to hearing more about it.

I barely hear news about this project anymore. Iirc they were planning to release a playable alpha two years ago but it seems they haven't done any real work outside of remaking some maps, weapons and characters. It's very ambitious for a fanmade project and I don't know how it will turn out.

Devolver Digital was interested in acquiring the Timesplitters IP, but apparently Crytek didn't want to part with it

Good to know that they won't part with an IP they've done nothing with and probably won't do anything with.

Devolver but honestly be the perfect ones to pick it up and do something with it. I miss TS.

As for Homefront, my guess is that they're going to do a soft sequel at best, and probably try to do as much as they can to essentially reboot it to distance itself from the flop that the first one was in terms of story and gameplay.
