Free Radical Design shuts down, sad news for Timesplitters fans

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Free Radical was founded by some of the minds behind N64's Goldeneye. the company developed the first three Timesplitters games and a fourth one was in development. a deal with Lucasarts to make the third Battlefront game, some founding members leaving the company, and the failure of Haze are the big reasons why the company closed its doors.

the members that left have set up a new company called Pumpkin Beach. they say theyre going to make games that are vastly different from the shooters they made with Free Radical. but theres still hope.
