I'm done.

Alright. So like, last week Crytek UK finally announced their latest game, in which everyone thought was going to be Timesplitters 4.

Before E3 Crytek said they'd announce a game that fans would be really happy about, and even before this, rumors were all over the place of Timesplitters 4 being in the works.

So after waiting forever just for the announcement, the ultimate cockblock: Crytek UK's newest game is Homefront 2.

HOMEFRONT 2. A sequel to a mediocre, uninspired FPS is being made by the brilliant minds who created the wonderful Timesplitters games.

SAD FART.

K bye.

Maybe the brilliant minds who made the wonderful Timesplitters games can, well, continue doing brilliant things and add some fun into the Homefront IP? Heck, I still think that the Homefront universe has potential, it just clearly wasn't realized in the first. Depending on how much creative control they have over the direction of this one, it just might turn out all right!

Don't give up, yet!

Wow, that is pretty disappointing. I thought the Homefront multiplayer was pretty fun from what I played in the demo, but I would much rather have a new Timesplitters.

Weren't they supposed to be working on Star Wars Battlefront 3 or something?

I'm still hopeful they'll make something of the series. Like drop the Call of Duty/Battlefield hybrid and try a different FPS style... Like Timesplitters!

If you're being serious, fuck you. If your just pulling a joke because of the thread title, congrats.

Gotta go where the money is. If you wanna pay 90$ for timesplitters go right ahead i bet if you get 500,000 people willing to pay 90$ you could get it.

Wasn't a big fan of timesplitters, but none of the games were exactly broken like alot of Homefront was either. Granted, wrong branch of crytek, but I'd be interested in another crysis game already lol. Use the same engine. Try and branch the first two games somehow. Played 2, thought it was fairly amazing. Went back and played 1 on the pc to understand it all, and...it made the entire story of 2 make no sense.

I think that was before Radical got bought by Crytek. As far as what's been said, I don't think it was ever officially announced (but concept art leaked and that's how it was revealed that something was even in the works). (Wouldn't be surprised if it was a situation similar to Grin and the FF game that was in the works, though hopefully without the lack of payment part :/ )

what if homefront 2 is timesplitters 4

#14 Posted by carlthenimrod (1594 posts) -

Just because Homefront was crap doesn't mean Homefront 2 will be crap. If it is crap then whatever they would have made alternatively would have probably been crap as well.

#15 Posted by UnrealDP (1222 posts) -

Huh, you know Homefront had some really cool ideas, tons of potential, and a solid multiplayer, but the problem was the developer didn't capitalize on any of that potential. So a more seasoned developer like Crytek taking the reins is a bad thing to you? Just because the previous developer did a bad job doesn't mean that franchise is tainted forever. Oh and also i would rather have a talented developer like Crytek working anything besides Timesplitters, but that's just my opinion.

Homesplitters 2

You've seen ZERO amount of this new game, what says it won't be on the level of timesplitters? Don't come back when Homefront 2 is GOTY buddy.

#20 Edited by Absolute_Zero (242 posts) -

I thought Homefront's multiplayer (demo) was fun. And Crysis 2's multiplayer (demo) was fun as well.

So maybe "A + B (will) = (a winning) C(?)"

If the guys that made Timesplitters are going to try and make a serious gritty war game, then this is a repeat of Haze

The fucking awesomeness of Timesplitters was somehow made by the guys who made Haze. I still don't get it

Inside joke. It originated from someone saying Sad Fart instead of sad face.

I take it you're that guy who defends every game by pulling the "Well it's not out yet so don't judge" crap. Look, I'm not saying the game is going to be bad, but a sequel to a game that plays like 95% of every first person shooter developed by the same people who flopped with HAZE doesn't sound like the rebound those guys need.
