TimeSplitters 2 remake announcement in SpellForce 3: Fallen God turned out to be a joke

Two weeks ago, the SpellForce 3: Fallen God role-playing strategy was released. In it players found items, descriptions of which refer to the released and upcoming games of publishing house THQ Nordic. In these descriptions found references to Biomutant, a remake of Gothic and remaster SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom, which are already known, but the news was allegedly the announcement of the remake of TimeSplitters 2.

According to THQ Nordic, its just a joke. Timesplitters 2 is a first-person shooter game that aired in October 2002 on PlayStation 2, Xbox and GameCube.

Development of the game was engaged in the British studio Free Radical Design, founded by former employees of Rare who worked on GoldenEye 007. Later Crytek bought Free Radical Design and renamed it Crytek UK.

In 2014, Crytek UK was closed and the rights to the TimeSplitters series passed to Koch Media, owner of Deep Silver publishing house. In early 2018, Koch Media acquired holding company THQ Nordic, now known as Embracer Group.

Last year, one of the founders of Free Radical Design and TimeSplitters creators Steve Ellis joined THQ Nordic to help build a course for the future for the franchise. In an interview with VGC, Ellis stated that he always viewed the TimeSplitters series as unfinished business.
