TimeSplitters Dev. Free Radical Fires 75% of Staff
"We're still trading on with the remaining 40 or so employees, have advertised the business for sale and have received some strong interest," ReSolve representative Cameron Gunn told 1UP. ReSolve had been tasked with assessing Free Radical's "financial position" and helping the developer weather its troubled times.
Free Radical was known to be working on TimeSplitters 4, and rumored to be developing Star Wars: Battlefront III for LucasArts. An anonymous staff member recently informed 1UP that the studio had "a number of cool projects in development--two of which are getting quite a lot of publisher interest already."
It's too bad, these guys might not make the best games but they're usually pretty fun to play.
The TimeSplitters series is one I don't want to see vanish, I've been waiting for a next-gen TS game.
