    Just wondered if anyone's heard anything about a Timesplitters game coming to the 360? The Timesplitters series used to be absolutely fantastic in multi-player on the "last-gen" so I reckon it's about time it made a debut. Anyone for Virus over Live!? How much fun would that be!? :D

    I've noticed that Microsoft still haven't released a patch for the Xbox1 game to run on the 360, so this may indicate a possibility in the future? Rather loose evidence, admittedly!

    Other than that, I've not heard anything which is a bit of a shame. Can anyone shed any light?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the people that did Timesplitters are currently working on Haze

    I think you're quite right. Haze is due out in November 07 as far as I can tell.

    I wonder if it will have the same multi-player modes as Timesplitters. It appears to be a much more serious game, so I don't imagine that Grab The Bag and Monkey Assault will be in it :( More is the pity...

    I wonder if Free Radical will emerge with a new TS game in the future.. here's hoping!

    I hope so too, I cant imagine Haze having monkey assault, although that would be fantastic :D

    I havent heard anything about a new Timesplitters game, but there has to be one on the tables, I loved them. the multiplayer modes and all the unlockable characters were just brilliant.

    Yeah, there were some awesome characters in there. I always used to play as the Gingerbread Man - "Bite my crunchy brown a$$" - or Duckman Drake! I seem to recall some fairly provocative female characters on there too!

    Virus online with 16 players would be absolutely insane. The fear involved in that game mode was fantastic - especially on the Circus map with speed ups!

    Man oh man, they have to bring it back! - or at least make Future Perfect backwards compatible in the meantime!

    hehe, yeah, that was a mad character! The Deerhunter and the walking cow carcass were pretty good too! I don't think where they got their ideas from, but they were truly inspired and superbly twisted!

    Hopefully a new TimeSplitters game would add even more to the madness! I loved the way you could unlock them as you played too, it really did encourage you to race that stupid little cat around the tracks!

    Come on Free Radical, give the people what they want! TS4! :D

    HAZE is looking awsome.

    Would love to see Timeplitters4 make it to 360 though - it would be made for LIVE :D

    I honestly don't know how Free Radical think they can get away with it! :D Such an awesome game deserves to be converted and brought up to the power of the 360.

    Where can we e-mail those numpties and tell them to stop bothering with this Haze nonsense!? ;)

    I'm usually OK with FPSs but for some strange reason Timesplitters on the Xbox gave me motion sickness.:thumbsdow It may sound funny but i think it's down to how much the gun in front of you jiggles while you're moving. How can i be fine in a boat in the heaving ocean yet a game makes me feel sea sick?

    A mate of mine is a producer at FR.. no talk of Timesplitters I'm afraid but as has been said above, Haze is looking damn fine!

    Thing is, as its another futuristic shooter I think they're gonna hold it back until Halo3 has been and gone

    I've not really heard much of this Haze game, though hopefully they incorporate some of the fun modes from the Timesplitters series. I'm getting a bit bored of the same old FPS modes now - shoot someone, die, die, die, shoot someone, die. Mmm, we need VIRUS! :D

    Team Fortress 2 on the new Half Life orange box looks like it was inspired by Timesplitters. It has that cool cartoony look about it. Check it out.

    Could be worth a look. I think one of the joys of TS:FP was the whole split-screen multi-player aspect. The bots were always a great laugh to play against when you had 4 mates gathered round the Xbox.

    This is one of the things that the 360 is severely lacking in my view - the party aspect. Sure, there are games like Fuzion Frenzy 2 and the odd 4 player shooter, but a new TS game could really excel as a party game. 4 player split-screen either online or vs bots would be fantastic.

    At the moment, I think only GRAW2 has this option, though I'm fairly confident I'm completely wrong!

    Haze has now been confirmed as a PS3 Exclusive. Looks like its not coming to X360 unless PS3 has a timed exclusive.

    TimeSplitters 2 is one of the finest shooters I've ever played - it was just sheer madness and the amount of gamemodes available was superb.

    Monkey Assistant used to have me in stitches, every 2 minutes you hear a bugle going and you desperately look to the scores to if the monkey's are gonna be coming after you...:D

    BRING IT BACK!!! PLEASE!!!

    Yikes, that's bad news. Haze looked awesome :(

    I suppose there's some hope in that it may be a timed exclusive, or Free Radicals may be cooking something else up for us along the same lines...

    Timesplitters perhaps!? ;)

    Well concidering that it was in develepment for X360 leads me to believe that it will eventually be on X360. But it might be 6-12 months after. Or if Sony have got their wallet out it could be full exclusive to PS3.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too. I've seen a few videos of the game, and it looks absolutely fantastic. Possibly the closest thing we'll get to Timesplitters for a while. I'm sure they'll go to town on the multi-player modes as well, really hope we get it on the 360, even if it is a wee while after. Didn't know Ubisoft were involved though?

    Aha, but it's definitely still going to be released for the Xbox 360?

    Just a wee bit delayed after the PS3 release. Any idea how far behind? :)

    Starwars Battlefront will be fantastic by the way!

    Yeah, it's very annoying all this talk of "Exclusives". Surely an exclusive should mean "no-one else is ever getting this game".

    Have done some googling and it seems the whole world is as confused as we are. Sony have gone to town claiming this is only coming out on the PS3 - what they should say is that it will be out first on the PS3. Would save a whole lot of head-scratching!

    Perhaps Ubisoft should make an official statement to stop these rumours, as I reckon there's quite a few disappointed 360 owners out there now.

    Sounds like a cracking game though, saw a few vids and the environments and explosions look superb. A bit like Crysis I reckon.

    Haze is confirmed as an exclusive for 07 on PS3 but could possibly be on X360 in 08. Its not confirmed it is still coming on X360 tho.
