The company needs to have clear demand before committing
Cevat Yerly, the leader of the development studio Crytek, says that he is interested in creating new content for the Timesplitters franchise, but he believes that the fan base needs to demonstrate that a clear demand exists for it.The developer tells GameInformer that, “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.”
He adds, “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.”
The developer says that if the petition reaches the signatures, then Yerli would be able to use it as leverage and convince the stakeholders of Crytek that new Timesplitters content could be a good business idea.
