THQ Nordic Acquires TimeSplitters and Second Sight

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.
