OG TimeSplitters Studio Reformed to Make Sequel


Deep Silver just announced the formation of a new studio that will bring the cult-classic TimeSplitters brand back to life. Key original members of the Free Radical Design team, including founders Steve Ellis and David Doak, have re-united to reform Free Radical Design.

TimeSplitters first released back in 2000, from the Original Free Radical Design studio, now reformed under Deep Silver, following their purchase of the TimeSplitters IP in 2018. Both Steve and David also worked on GoldenEye 007 and Perfect Dark at Rare.

“It’s this unique style that earned the TimeSplitters series a large and passionate following who will, without doubt, be excited by the formation of Deep Silver’s latest studio and will look forward to learning more as the franchise moves forward,” said Paul Nicholls, Global Brand, and Marketing Director, Deep Silver.

Deep Silver is poised in reviving the beloved franchise and folks at Free Radical Design are no less excited.

“To finally be able to confirm that the studio has been formed and that we have a plan for the next TimeSplitters game is incredible,” commented Steve Ellis, Studio Development Director, Free Radical Design. “While we cannot tell you anything more at the moment, we look forward to sharing information in the future.”

The news is certainly exciting, but don’t expect it to launch anytime soon. The Free Radical Design team will commence development on the next TimeSplitters game in the coming months; for now, they are concentrating on building the studio, which will be situated in the Nottingham area. Expect to see career openings at the studio soon.
