Timesplitters HD petition on the go

 Pages 1 2 NEXT
 

I have no idea what effect this would actually have but apparently the main reason for having no new Timesplitters is the CEO of Crytek being unsure of there being enough demand for it.

So someone has begun a petition to show that there is demand, it worked for Dark Souls PC so maybe it could work here. The petition is nearly up to 7K but it appears to have been going for quite some time although today was the first I've heard of it.

https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/crytek-uk-create-a-timesplitters-hd-collection

Is petitioning a good way for fans to show demand for future projects? Or is it just pipe dream action?

P.S. could always sign it I suppose, if it's something you could get behind.

I know Bobmus' post is literally the first comment but this needs to be put up here....

Crytek's CEO on this petition:

There is actually a petition running online trying to bring the fan base together. But unfortunately the petition doesn't look that convincing. If the petition picks up it will be an even better argument for us. At a personal level, I'm a big fan of Timesplitters 2. For me, I would love to see the game out there, as a newborn HD version or what not. I definitely would love to see it. But the case of turning this into a business decision is still difficult, despite the fact that there was a Twitter request feed to test the waters. And now the petition, it just seems to be as we expected, as it was when it was Free Radical.

There's a very hardcore market that is very verbal about it. I would love to see this, and if the fan base approves a further petition. They're trying to call 300,000 voices, I think it's at two or three thousand right now. If they could get the petition together I would be very happy to put in front of decision makers in the company, the key stakeholders, and say "Look here. This is how it is, let's make it now."

Definitely signed the petition. Would love for them to see just how many people would love to have it.

And by the way, since you made this an hour and a half ago, the signatures have more than doubled to 16,203.

So get signing people! Even if you think that they won't listen or even if you don't like the series, because on the off chance this would work, I would love for it to happen.

Signed. When I was growing up, Timepsplitters 2 was the only FPS I owned. Out of all of the ones I played at the time, TS2 was the best. Now a days I still keep my old Xbox around JUST so I can play Timesplitters: Future Perfect.

Overall, they are very fun arcade-y shooters. The game is reminiscent of the older Doom and Quake games. I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a break from Call of Duty and their army of clones, and Halo.

EDIT: For those unfamiliar with the game, here's a Classic Game Room review of Timesplitters: Future Perfect. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lv0uITvmepU&hd=1.

I shall sign as I love Timesplitters more than I think is naturally possible, they are my favorite games of all time.

Seems very fair of the man.

I think the reason this petition hasn't picked up steam isn't a lack of interest, but a lack of publicity. Take the Dark Souls PC petition, for example. A few days after that went up it was all over the gaming news sites. I haven't seen this petition anywhere. If there were a few big sites that reported on it, I think that this petition would really start getting a lot of signatures.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure I already signed this a while back, so I'm not going to sign it again.

Agreed.
You see love for Timesplitters all over the place everywhere yet this isn't doing well? Bull.
We need more and bigger sights reporting on this and we may just get what we want... no, need.

Need mah fuckin' splitterz, bro.

I was just contemplating posting this, good to see someone beat me too it :P

I missed the goldeneye craze (never had a 64). SO for me, THIS is my goldeneye, the shooter that will never be beaten. Except timesplitters holds up well for its age :P

The petition is now at 22,000. Yesterday it was about 3000. Either people are doing good or something odd is happening.

It may well be because it's at the top of r/gaming at the moment. And that's after it being up for only 2 hours.

So people are doing good? Excellant ^_^

Holy shit you're right. This might actually happen now. Hooray for the internet!

I actually found this out from the Amazon.com Facebook page of all things. I signed it immediately. While I really don't care about an HD Collection (because I already own 2 and Future Perfect), if it helps to get a new entry in the series released, I support it 100%.

Singed. This is just too awesome not to happen. Never played the first, but 2 and 3 are some of the most fun I've ever had with video games.

They's better keep the multi-player bots though. If they want to also have online play there because that's the done thing now so be it, but I want to be able to play with bots if I so choose.

EDIT: Also, yes, this definitely needs more publicity. I'm not sure if it's out of line for random forumites to tell the escapist staff that we need an article on this... but we really need an article on this.

I know they may not be the biggest gaming site but Xbox360Achievements put up a piece about the petition.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/news/news-13407-Sign-the-TimeSplitters-4-Petition-and-Crytek-Might-be-Able-to-Make-it-Happen.html

Signed it. Would be nice to have since I opened up my TS3 case and found the disc scratched to shit. I haven't taken that disc out in two years, and it was never scratched before :(

Oh, and I hope they do that thing Ratchet and Clank did and redo the multiplayer. That would be so badass, I would play for a week straight.

My friend was on reddit during a clas and when he scolled passed it I immediately took control of the computer and signed it.

Would it be possible to get the news room to make an article for it?
After all, they've covered quite a lot of news around Timesplitters.

I sent Susan a message. Now all we can do is hope.

Signed, petition is now at 40 000

Signed and shared. If they do an HD collection, I hope that at least one of them has online multiplayer. I'd prefer 3.

...We should totally get serious about this too...post flyers at your game shops! Post on other forums! 300k is going to take a lot!

Signed. Il do my best to spread word in my circles.

Done.

Almost 45,000 signatures now. Not sure if it will make it but perhaps a kickstarter to test the water would be better?

GoaThief:

I don't know actually. The CEO just wants to know the demand is there to do it. They don't need the money. The problem is the petition didn't exactly get that much press which is why it needs to get around.

Seems to be going strong since it go on Reddit and a couple of other places, it just needs to be a bit more prominent. Unless of course all those people saying how much they loved Timesplitters literally can't be bothered to sign.

It's now almost at 45K and when I started this thread it wasn't even up to 7K and from the comments on the petition it had been going a month.....

I hope he feels this because I'm signing it as hard as I can.

Timesplitters is the best shooter series ever, and my most favorite game series OF ALL TIME. There's a lot of talk and debate about what "fun" is. What it really means. I'll tell you what it means, Timesplitters is what it means. There is no other game that demonstrates precisely what "fun" is.

It has a charm and personality unlike any other game, and its an absolute joy. The multiplayer is the most fun I've ever had while playing games. The bots are fun to play with. 4 player split-screen is fun, and the map editor of the games is the best I've ever used. Simple enough that anyone can get into, deep enough that you can make story missions with it. Each game was a seperate experience that, instead of doing the standard "same old stuff with some new stuff" formula like most sequels, did something all their own. This means each game has something you will not experience in the others. The characters are unique, funny, and all have their own little personality. And considering there are 150+(!) selectable characters for multiplayer, thats quite a feat. I could turn this into a giant essay about why Timesplitters is the greatest series ever made, but I'll stop here.

So sign it. Sign it as hard as you fucking can. The Moose is fucking loose.

Signed.

Sci-Fi Handgun and AI multi-player console bots, HO!

Must spread word! This series is one of my all time favorites. I've never played another FPS where a monkey can kill a Robot by tossing a brick at his crotch. Timesplitters 2 is my personal favorite of the series, too. So, I'm definitely signing this.

I'm scared now. It seems to be losing momentum.

And I've told everyone I can so far. I don't know what to do...

I've never played Timesplitters but many seem to like the games, so if it's any help, I signed it anyway. Who knows, maybe I'll pick this up if they do it.

Remember, if it gets reported on by a couple more big gaming sites, it could easily get that momentum back. Also, remember that it probably doesn't need 300,000 signatures to get it made. I think if it gets at least 50,000, something Timesplitters related could easily end up happening.

Yeah. It just looks more impressive if it actually reaches its target instead of failing, because that gives the idea of hope then failure, which isn't good when selling a game.

Signed and telling all of my friends about it. I've been loving Timesplitters since the original and I've gone far too long without the timesplitting goodness!

Signed, and now hoping for the best. A HD version of TimeSplitters... I'm getting all giddy and stuff :D Make it happen!

signed, and i'm pestering everyone i know to do the same, if this works out, listen carefully, you'll be able to hear my cheering from any section of the globe

Oh, by the way, Susan responded to my message, said that they generally don't do features on stuff like this or anything similar (kickstarter and the such) because they don't want a massive amount of people bugging them to highlight the new thing that they're looking forward to.
