THQ Nordic Acquires TimeSplitters and Second Sight

Published

TimeSplitters

Publisher THQ Nordic has acquired the rights to the TimeSplitters franchise and the game Second Sight.

In a press release, THQ Nordic described TimeSplitters as “one of the most influential console games of the early 2000’s.” Fans of the games are currently working on TimeSplitters Rewind, a fan-made game using CryEngine 3; THQ’s plans for the game are not yet clear.

The acquisition of the franchise’s rights brings the series back to developer Deep Silver’s collection; the original games were developed by Free Radical Design, which dissolved in 2014 and the majority of the staff transferred to Deep Silver Dambuster Studios.

THQ Nordic also acquired the rights to Second Sight, a 2002 science-fiction action-adventure game by Free Radical Design. The game’s acquisition may hint at a sequel to the original game.

Rhain discovered a long time ago that mixing one of his passions (video games) with the other (writing) might be a good idea, and now he’s been stuck in the industry for over six years with no means of escaping. His favourite games are those with deep and captivating narratives: while it would take far too long to list them all, some include L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption (and its sequel), Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.

Stalker 2 is Not A Revived Version of the Cancelled 2012 Project

Stalker 2

Stalker 2 has been confirmed as an entirely new project that has no basis on the cancelled 2012 sequel.

Roughly a decade ago, fans were excited when Stalker 2 was announced. Unfortunately, in 2012, Ukrainian developers GSC Games World was shut down and all progress on the sequel was put on hold.

All went quiet until 2014 where the company resurfaced and announced that development on a version of Stalker 2 was underway. Despite a developer build for the original Stalker 2 making its way onto the web, GSC Games World chose to start from scratch and create an entirely new AAA experience for the series.

GSC Games World has so far not stated why the decision was made to start from the beginning, aside from the assurance that the new game is currently in development and will hopefully hit stores in 2021.
