Crytek: 300,000 Petition Signatures Necessary For Timesplitters HD Collection

In no uncertain terms, Crytek will only consider a Timesplitters HD collection or sequel if they can see real demand for it. If, for example, a popular online petition reaches a third of a million signatures...

“I would love to see the game out there," explained Crytek CEO Cervat Yerli to Game Informer, "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."

Yerli used a petition on Change.org to suggest that there's no evidence of massive demand for a new Timesplitters game, but that fan support could be used to justify the game to publishers.

"And now the petition, it just seems to be as we expected, as it was when it was Free Radical," he continued. "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.”

“Unfortunately the petition doesn’t look that convincing. If the petition picks up it will be an even better argument for us,”

So, you know what to do.

Look at new IP's. Take Bayonetta for example, that was something new and published by sega, now sega dont have much of an impact on the consumers as ea for example. Yet that game still sold well and it was a great game too. Now look at future IP's like Remember Me or Beyond Two Souls for example, those games are being made and they do look great. That the reason these new IP's sell is through marketing and what not. So why cant crytek dothat with Timesplitters, i mean jesus just market it, like all new games do, plus the fact its has previous games means ohers may have heard ofit before, i mean why do they feel the need to do this to Timesplitters. And seeing as ea have good sales (if they do publish it), and crytek are quite well known, and most games focusing on FPS's because they apparently sell more, i just dont know what the deal is..
