TimeSplitters 4 is ‘not in development’ for Wii U

In a response to CVG, Crytek  have seemingly killed the rumours that TimeSplitters 4 is in development for the Wii U or any other console for that matter.

We first heard about the TimeSplitters 4 Wii U rumours a few months ago  and two days ago Aussie Gamer reported that a source of OXM had seen the game running. That could still be true as they could have started development on the game and then it was cancelled. A Crytek spokesperson had this to say: ”No, it’s not in development.”

Before the spokesperson was pressed for a more serious answer they gave quite a jokey statement:

For Timesplitters 4, with ever spiralling development costs, massive teams and endless crunch we decided on a more radical development strategy. In short, the experiment was to implement the infinite monkey theorem. With cloning being a far too expensive option, we spent all of the development budget on buying monkeys on the black market. Those seven monkeys are now sat in a room with typewriters and lots of mirrors, and we fully expect Timesplitters 4 to be finished soon. Rumours are that they haven’t written any code but just tease the press from time to time. Those damn monkeys.PS: anyone got any bananas?
