You may have heard recently that a timesplitters 2 remake is in the works, rumored to have spread through the context of the game in THQ Nordic’s strategy-RPG. Spelling 3: Fall God. “Finally coming!” Description of the item in timesplitters 2b states. “Iconic shooter, which has crossed the time to reach the age of modern sports.”
You can see a description of the item, in French, below:
It was an exciting teaser – the acclaimed TimesSplitters 2 was released for GameCube, PlayStation 2, and Xbox in 2002, but it never came to PC – and is also very credible: Coach Media, which acquired TimesSplitters in 2018, It is owned by THQ Nordic, similar to the original developer Free Radical Design, although it is now known as Dumbster Studios.
Sadly, it looks like the whole thing is red herring. “This is just an innocent Easter egg,” said a THQ Nordic report. Eurogamer. “The seller in the game is a character, especially for not telling the truth.”
According to the seller’s site, it also sells items referring to “canceled” bio mutants and gothic games, none of which have actually been canceled.
That’s not to say that TimesSplitters 2 won’t eventually come to PC, especially given the attachment of THQ Nordic to revive older games. But, sorry, it doesn’t look like the actual announcement of the Destinate-for-PC remake is going to happen anytime soon.
