Following the likely cancellation of the TimeSplitters reboot and confirmed closure of developer Free Radical, alleged images and assets from the project have started to appear online.
Now, following the closure, assets for its game have seemingly started to appear on the ArtStation pages of various artists who’ve worked on the TimeSplitters reboot, as collected by the community-maintained Free Radical wiki.
The assets include character art for characters, NPCs, and locations, as well as items largely used for in-game map design. Weapons that would potentially be used in the game can also be seen in the large amount of concept art.
Plaion and its parent company Embracer announced in May 2021 that a new Free Radical Design had been established by original founders Steve Ellis and David Doak to bring the TimeSplitters IP “back to life”.
Job losses across the games industry have been widespread in 2023 and it’s estimated that over 9,000 people have lost their jobs so far this year.
Companies impacted by layoffs include Xbox Game Studios, Epic Games, Sony Interactive Entertainment, CD Projekt, Unity, Riot Games, Blizzard, Crystal Dynamics, BioWare, Striking Distance, Team17, Frontier Developments and Telltale Games.
