TimeSplitters 2 THQ Nordic Steve Ellis

If there was any doubt about a new TimeSplitters game being in the works, let them be put to rest. Last year, Koch Media, itself owned by THQ Nordic, acquired the IP for the beloved shooter franchise. At the time, it was pretty strongly implied that a new game would be coming sooner or later.

Now, in THQ Nordic's latest financial report, it's been announced that Steve Ellis has joined the company. Ellis is one of the creators of TimeSplitters, and he's joined the publisher in order to "help plot the future course for this franchise".

That's about all we have to go on, but it more or less confirms a new TimeSplitters game is in development. It may be a while before we see it - we imagine it's a PS5 game at this point - but it's exciting nonetheless.
