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.
