TimeSplitters Has been Acquired by THQ Nordic

Publisher THQ Nordic has announced that it has recently picked up the rights for the classics Timesplitters and Second Sight. They are releasing their post-apocalyptic adventure Darksiders 3 later this year.

TimeSplitters was originally released in 2000 by Free Radical Design for PlayStation 2 and is fondly remembered by fans of the series. The fast-paced multiplayer shooter featured a lighthearted comedic take on the genre through a wealth of charming characters and silly weapons. There were also a number of popular sequels released, including TimeSplitters 2 and TimeSplitters: Future Perfect.

With the news that THQ Nordic is now the franchise’s home, this means that there is a chance that we could see future installments or see the older games re-released or remastered for the TimeSplitters series for modern consoles.

THQ Nordic has not yet stated what its intentions are with the newly acquired properties.
