TimeSplitters dev feels the Force

Thursday 24 August 2006
Industrious first-person shooter developer Free Radical is apparently going all-out on next-gen development - as well as its E3-announced next-gen shooter, Haze, it's just been revealed that it's also working on a game for Star Wars bods, LucasArts.

No details have yet been released, although we noticed that, compared to LucasArts' announcement earlier in the month that it would be publishing a "new intellectual property" from MechAssault developer Day 1 Studios, the Free Radical project isn't referred to as a new title.

Speculation ahoy, then - is it a fourth 'Splitters, by now having jumped publishers almost as many times as it has time periods? Or could it be a Star Wars title, with LucasArts seizing on Free Radical's experience with fast-paced blasting sessions to bring Jedi Knight back to life?

We'll make sure you know as soon as we do.
